Animal Population Control Program

The Animal Population Control program provides financial assistance for low-income, New Hampshire-resident pet owners to neuter their cat or dog. It is part of the state's program to reduce pet overpopulation and threats to public health and safety from mid-Atlantic rabies and other sources. Telephone (603) 271-3697.

**NOTE: Out of an abundance of caution, as of March 16, 2020 the APCP will not be receiving walk-in clients for on-the-spot application approvals until at least April 3. Applications will still be accepted, reviewed, and approved, as appropriate, through the standard APCP approval process. Please continue to submit application documents by mail and follow up by telephone or email. Thank you for your understanding.

Please send in a completed application plus an additional copy per animal for which you are applying for assistance. You may only receive help with three animals per household every five years.
