Low-Cost Spay & Neuter Services

Each year, California spends $250 million to house and care for over 1 million unwanted and abandoned pets, half of which are ultimately euthanized.  The Bakersfield SPCA wants to help stop the overpopulation of these animals by coordinating low-cost spay and neuter services through monthly appointments with the HOPE Foundation in Fresno.

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, “Having your pet spayed or neuteredis a part of responsible pet ownership and an important investment in your pet’s long-term good health.”

The Bakersfield SPCA brings together owners of cats and/or dogs with Fresno’s HOPE Foundation’s low-cost spay and/or neutering program.  Each month, HOPE Foundation offers these procedures to Bakersfield’s pet owners for $45-55 for cats and $65-125 for dogs.  HOPE Foundation arranges for transportation to Fresno where pets will stay overnight after the procedure.  Owners have to make an appointment with the SPCA to have their pet’s health evaluated and pay the fees. Then, on their designated day, they drop off their animal at the Bakersfield SPCA at 6:00 a.m. and pick up on the following day at 12:00 p.m.  The upcoming scheduled days are June 11 and July 16.

You can visit the Kern Humane Society at 2111 Brundage Lane on the first Saturday of each month for a coupon for an additional $20 off the HOPE Foundation’s spay and neuter program. For more information, please call the Bakersfield SPCA at 323-8353, extension 2 or visit www.bakersfieldspca.org.
