All dogs placed by Maine Sheltie Rescue, Inc. are spayed or neutered prior to placement except in instances where the dog is not a candidate for spaying or neutering due to age or physical condition.
In circumstances where spaying/neutering is not appropriate prior to placement, Maine Sheltie Rescue, Inc. requires adoption applicants to submit a $100 spay/neuter deposit prior to placement of a rescued dog. This deposit must be submitted with the completed adoption application. Spay/neuter deposits will be returned to applicants upon providing Maine Sheltie Rescue, Inc. with documentation showing the spay/neuter procedure has been performed.
