Promoting adoption, spay/neuter, and forever homes

2012 Spay Day Dates

On Sunday, February 26, the Sacramento Area Animal Coalition (SAAC) is partnering with local veterinary clinics and animal shelters to again spay and neuter hundreds of dogs and cats belonging to income-qualified families in Sacramento and Yolo County as part of National Spay Day.  Since 2000, 7,700 dogs and cats locally have been altered through Spay Day Sacramento, preventing the births of thousands of unwanted animals and reducing the burden on area shelters.

Low income families needing to spay or neuter their cats or dogs should apply for an appointment at ""   beginning this Saturday, January 21st.  (Low income is defined here as Sacramento or Yolo County residents who receive public assistance or have an annual household income of $35,000 or less.)  On January 28th, SAAC volunteers will begin calling the applicants to schedule the actual Spay Day appointments. This is limited to 2 pets per household, dogs and/or cats only.

For a co-pay of just $20 per dog and $15 per cat, clients’ dogs and cats will be spay or neutered, receive updated vaccinations, microchipping, and flea preventative—at least a $250 value in today’s economy.

For more information, click on the flyer above or go to Spay Day on the SAAC website.
