WOODBINE – Shore Animal Control, the borough’s animal control services, will accept applications for the state spay/neuter program in February and March.

Residents who qualify, the cost will be $10 for the surgery.

“As we approach both our March 16 rabies clinic and the March 31 deadline for licensing of animals, I want to remind residents that there is a reduced licensing fee for spayed/neutered dogs,” Mayor William Pikolycky said in a press release. “Please take advantage of these cost-saving programs.”

Proof of rabies vaccination is required for the program, which includes dogs and cats.

To qualify, the owner must be on at least food stamps, Medicaid, General Public Assistance, Rental Assistance, Aid to Families with Dependent Children, Lifeline Utility Credit, Tenants Lifeline Assistance, Supplemental Security Income and Pharmaceutical Assistance to Aged and Disabled.

“Even those not on any of the above may qualify for a low-cost surgery for their pet at a reduced price,” reads a statement from the borough.
