We Pay to Spay – Free Pit Bull Clinics

FREE SPAY AND NEUTER SURGERIES FOR PIT BULLS AND PIT BULL MIXES

The Sacramento SPCA offers free spay or neuter for pit bulls and pit bull mixes BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Surgery is done at the Sacramento SPCA every Tuesday and Thursday. The We Pay To Spay program is available only to Sacramento County residents and West Sacramento residents. You must show proof of residency at the time of your appointment.

Due to the high demand for the free We Pay to Spay program and because scheduling is managed by volunteers, the We Pay to Spay program only accepts phone applications on the 5th of each month for appointments available the following month.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we hope that the following information will help you through the application process.

In order to be considered for an appointment through our free pit bull spay/neuter program, you must call our We Pay to Spay hotline on the 5th of the month (regardless of whether the 5th falls on a weekday, weekend or holiday) and please leave a voicemail with the following information:

1) Your full name;
2) Your home AND cellular telephone numbers, along with the best time to reach you;
3) Your dog’s gender, age and weight (approximate is fine).

Volunteers schedule appointments on a “first-reached, first-scheduled” basis.  Due to the volume of calls we receive on the 5th, it may take until the end of the month for our volunteers to return your call.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Please note:  SPCA volunteers typically make return phone calls in the evening and/or on weekends (from a blocked number).  It is important to answer these calls as we cannot book an appointment for your dog unless we speak with you first.
