Spay Day Sacramento

Every February, Sacramento area veterinary clinics and animal shelters join SAAC to spay and neuter hundreds of dogs and cats belonging to income-qualified families on Spay Day Sacramento.

Since 2000, more than 9,600 dogs and cats have been altered through Spay Day Sacramento -- preventing the births of thousands of unwanted puppies and kittens and reducing the burden on area shelters.
