Tip Me Frederick Awarded Grant from Maryland Department of Agriculture

Support from State Spay-Neuter Grant Program will help Tip Me Frederick's lifesaving work for community cats

TMF was awarded a new grant for 2022 from the State of Maryland, Department of Agriculture, Spay/Neuter Program, to spay/neuter and vaccinate 598 cats in 21740, 21742 and 21788 areas.

The MDA's program is designed to reduce the number of unwanted cats and dogs euthanized in shelters across the state by providing competitive grants to local governments and animal welfare organizations that promote and provide spay and neuter services and educational outreach, with an emphasis on low income communities and populations.


Who can participate?

Anyone who is caring for, or wants to care for, feral, semi-feral, or free-roaming cats in the awarded region is eligible to participate.

What do you need to do?

The first step is to contact us so we can determine how best to support you. Our volunteers can loan you traps and instruct you on the trapping process; provide transportation to the clinic; etc. The level of support we provide depends on you and what you need to be successful!

What's the cost?

The grant provides for FREE sterilization and vaccination (rabies and distemper combo). If the vet determines it is necessary your cat receives additional medical treatment, you are responsible for reimbursement to TMF. You may also request other services on the day of the clinic and they can be provided for a minimal fee. All cats will be ear tipped.

Is there an income requirement?

While this program does not have minimum income eligibility requirements, it is meant to assist Good Samaritans who are caring for community cats and cannot afford sterilization and vaccination services.
