LEWISTON — The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society is excited to announce two new spay/neuter programs for pets of residents within Androscoggin County.

Made possible with the $20,000 grant prize awarded to the Humane Society following their efforts in the 2011 ASPCA’s $100K Challenge the Humane Society introduces their new Pit Bull Spay/Neuter Program. Open to all residents, this program enables owners of both pure breed pit bull and mixes to have their dog spayed/neutered for just a $10 co-pay. A rabies vaccination is also included.

For cats in the community, the Targeted Feline Spay/Neuter Program enables qualifying individuals in need of financial assistance can have their cat or kitten spayed/neutered and vaccinated for rabies for just a $10 co-pay.
