Sacramento SPCA Announces Spay & Neuter Clinic Expansion!
Saving Lives and Making Life-Saving Work Possible
The Sacramento SPCA is thrilled to announce the launch of a community campaign to construct an expanded spay & neuter clinic and animal health center that will open in 2021!
Since 1996, the Sacramento SPCA has operated a spay and neuter clinic and now runs one of the top 10 high-volume spay/neuter centers in the nation for high-quality, high-volume spay and neuter services. In 2019 alone, this clinic altered over 18,000 animals including our own shelter animals, publicly owned animals and animals from other local shelters.
These services are offered at a significantly lower rate than private clinics and, as a result, the demand for these services far outweighs our ability to provide them to the animals that need it. To accommodate this demand, we are renovating our former administrative building to house a 6,400 square foot, high-volume, high-quality spay and neuter clinic that will initially increase our capacity by 5,000 animals, meaning that we will spay and neuter over 23,000 animals in 2021.
The space was strategically-designed to meet our needs, and has numerous features that will allow us to not only expand our spay and neuter capabilities, but also greatly expand our wellness clinic, providing affordable veterinary care to pet owners in the greater Sacramento region.
By expanding access to spay and neuter services, we will reduce the number of animals entering shelters as a result of health-related surrenders, unplanned litters, and strays. We will also be able to offer increase capacity for our Feral & Community Cat Clinic and make a greater impact on the overpopulation of feral cats in our area. With a larger capacity to meet the minor surgical and wellness needs of the animals in our care, we will be able to continue to say “yes” to animals with treatable conditions who often have nowhere else to turn.
The Sacramento SPCA is launching our final race to the finish line to raise $525,000 in public funds to complete this massive project and we need your support. Click below to help us save lives:
