Help Fix ME Program Virtual Listening Session

Division / Program: Animal and Plant Health Animal Welfare
Date: September 15, 2021
Time: 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: Virtual Meeting - Microsoft Teams
Event Type: Public Meeting/Hearing

Since 2005, the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry's Animal Welfare Program (AWP) has operated the Help Fix ME program (Companion Animal Sterilization Program). The program helps subsidize and encourage qualified pet owners to sterilize their cats and dogs. The program decreases the euthanasia rates in animal shelters across the state by reducing the number of animals in the shelters and making it more likely that they will be adopted.

The AWP has undertaken an internal assessment of the Help Fix ME program and recently surveyed veterinarians across the state for their input on the program.

Please review the assessment and survey results (PDF). AWP invites stakeholder feedback during the September 15, 2021 Listening Session.

We look forward to hearing your comments, suggestions, and input on how to improve the program. Please join us on September 15.
