Green Mountain Animal Defenders promotes the spaying and neutering of companion animals.

Each year between six and eight million dogs and cats enter shelters in the United States. Approximately 2.4 million of the animals are euthanized. Spaying and neutering is a proven way to reduce the overpopulation and help ensure that every companion animal has a home.


Find out how spaying and neutering benefits your pet and community.

There are a number of common myths about spaying and neutering — find out why they're wrong.

Do you need help paying for spaying or neutering? Low-cost services are available in Vermont and all other states.

The Vermont Spay Neuter Incentive Program provides vouchers to people on many types of public assistance to have their pets spayed or neutered by a participating veterinarian.

Don't qualify for VSNIP, but still need assistance paying for your pet to be spayed or neutered? GMAD may be able to help. Call (802) 861-3030 or email for more information.

How You Can Help

Sponsor a cat or kitten. A donation of $60 will provide for spaying or neutering and all necessary vaccinations. Upon request, you can receive a photograph of the cat you sponsor.

Sponsor a dog or puppy. A donation of $125 will provide for the subsidized spaying or neutering of a dog.

A donation of any amount can be applied toward either one at your request.

Volunteer with us to help promote spaying and neutering.
