The Spay and Neuter Pet Grant Program (SNGP) was established on May 25th 2020, to provide grant funds to organizations that provide spay and neuter services for cats and dogs. Pursuant to the authority granted at A.C.A. §15-4-209(a)(1), the Arkansas Economic Development Commission (AEDC) shall administer the SNGP.
The objective of the program is to provide matching grant funds to cities of the first class, cities of the second class, incorporated towns, unincorporated towns, or counties of the State of Arkansas to assist organizations that provide spay and neuter services for cats and dogs that are in animal shelters or municipal shelters. The goal of the grant is to reduce the over population of cats and dogs as well as reducing the number of animals euthanized in shelters. All project expenditures shall be completed within 12 months after the date of the grant award, unless such date has been extended by AEDC at the request of the grantee.
