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.

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.
