Free Spay/Neuter for Oakland Dogs and Cats!
Friends of Oakland Animal Services offers free spay/neuter services to dogs and cats of Oakland residents. Through our spay/neuter clinics and voucher program, we aim to ensure that financial need is not a barrier for Oakland residents seeking spay/neuter surgeries for their animals.
Why Spay and Neuter?
Spaying and neutering prevents many behavior and health problems for your animal as well as reducing overpopulation and the euthanasia of unwanted dogs and cats in Oakland.
Monthly Spay/Neuter Events in Oakland
We offer first-come, first-served events in Oakland as well as limited appointment-based events.
Currently, our first-come, first-served events take place the second Sunday of each month at 410 Hegenberger Road, with check-in between 7:30 – 8:30 am. Events are limited to the first approximately 40 animals, and no appointments are required. Occasional appointment-based events at the same location are also available–to inquire about appointment availability, please complete a request form.
These free events are for dogs and cats and include microchipping and routine vaccines as needed.
Free Voucher Program
Can’t make an upcoming clinic? FOAS can provide Oakland residents with free vouchers for spay/neuter, microchipping, and routine vaccines at the Fix Our Ferals clinic in Richmond. Vouchers are available on a limited monthly basis and are not transferable. Please complete a PetFix inquiry form to request a voucher.
You Can Help!
Spaying and neutering saves lives! In just a few years, an unaltered pet and his or her offspring can produce thousands of puppies and kittens. You can be a part of the solution to pet homelessness here in Oakland. Please donate to FOAS, or contact us at if you are interested in sponsoring an upcoming spay/neuter clinic in Oakland.
