Free Spay/Neuter for Oakland Dogs and Cats!
Friends of Oakland Animal Services offers free spay and neuter services to dogs and cats of Oakland residents. Through our spay and neuter clinics and voucher program, we aim to ensure that financial need is not a barrier for Oakland residents seeking spay and neuter surgeries for their animals.
Why Spay and Neuter?
Spaying and neutering prevent many behaviors and health problems for your animal. It reduces overpopulation and euthanizing unwanted dogs and cats in Oakland.
FOAS Monthly Spay and Neuter Events in Oakland
**NOTE: there will be no first-come, first-served spay/neuter event in September.**
We offer first-come, first-serve events in Oakland as well as limited appointment-based events.
Currently, our first-come, first-serve events take place the second Sunday of each month at 410 Hegenberger Road, with check-in between 7:30 – 8:30 am. FOAS events are limited to the first approximately 40 animals, and no appointments are required. Monthly appointment-based events at the same location are also available.

These free events are for dogs and cats and include microchipping and routine vaccines as needed.
