Spay/Neuter Surgeries

Our mobile spay/neuter surgeries are free or for a donation for pet owners in Santa Barbara County and San Luis Obispo County who cannot afford to alter their dogs and cats at a veterinary clinic or a low-cost clinic such as the humane society.

Please note: Spays and neuters need to be scheduled prior to a clinic day. All dogs and female cats must wear an e-collar (“cone”) for 7-10 days post surgery to prevent infection. We charge $10 per cone. We also charge a fee for three days of pain medication to go home. This fee starts at $10 and goes up depending on a dog’s weight.
