Spay / Neuter Grant

Since 2007, the Town of Orange Animal Control has been the recipient of a grant from Massachusetts Animal Coalition’s “I’m Animal Friendly” License Plate Program. The sale of these license plates by the Registry of Motor vehicles is the sole funding source for these grants.

Grant funds are used to assist lower income residents of Orange to get their dogs and cats spayed or neutered. Spay/Neuter services are provided by Brian Hurley, DVM, of the Gardner Animal Care Center. Surgeries will be performed the second, third, and fourth Fridays of each month.

In July 2010, MAC awarded the Orange Spay/Neuter Program a grant of $1,550.00

If you wish to have your puppy, dog, kitten or cat spayed or neutered, please contact me by telephone at 978-413-7871 (Dog Officer cell), or by Email.
