Low Cost Spay/Neuter

PAWS believes in population control for all our companion animals, to reduce euthanasia (kill) rates at shelters. The Humane Society of the United States estimates 2.7 million healthy shelter pets are not adopted each year. There are several methods for birth control. The most common method is to have the animal spayed or neutered.
Below are lists of some special programs in the Santa Clara County area that offer discounted or free spay or neuter.
Thank you for being part of the answer to pet overpopulation.
