Animal lovers in Sacramento and Yolo Counties can reserve low-cost spay and neuter surgeries for their dogs and cats during Spay Day Sacramento 2018.
Spay Day Sacramento is an annual event run by Sacramento Area Animal Coalition (SAAC), an all-volunteer nonprofit committed to eliminating local pet overpopulation. Since 2000, nearly 10,000 dogs and cats have been spayed or neutered through the program.
On Spay Day, each pet receives a spay or neuter surgery, permanent microchip identification and vital vaccinations. An appointment and proof of income are required. Procedures for cats are $15, and for dogs, $20. (Limit: two dogs or cats per household.)
Sacramento and Yolo County residents who receive public assistance and/or have an annual household income of $35,000 or less are eligible to participate. Priority is given to pitbulls and Chihuahuas.
Spay and neuter surgeries will be provided at participating veterinary clinics and animal shelters on or around Feb. 25.
