You must permanently reside in Truckee, Sierra County, Eastern Placer County or Eastern Nevada County.
The FREE spay/neuter program is for Pit Bulls and Chihuahuas. Determining whether your dog is a Pit Bull/Chihuahua/Mix will be at the sole discretion of our staff. Documentation of breed history can be provided, but the final decision will be made by staff.
Eligible owners of all other breeds can apply for our affordable Community Discount Spay/Neuter program here.
Your application must be filled out in its entirety in order to be considered.
Surgery dates are Thursdays, once per month at 8:00AM and are scheduled by appointment only.
Dogs MUST be current on required vaccinations (listed on the application) at LEAST 10-14 days prior to surgery.
Free microchipping is available with each spay/neuter appointment.
Because of age or illness, some animals may not be appropriate candidates for spaying or neutering. You should consult with a veterinarian about the suitability of your pet for surgery.
All surgery, including spay/neuter surgery, can have risks. Complications, including injury or death of the animal can occur. It is your responsibility to talk to our veterinarian about this prior to your appointment.
