Low-Cost Spay/Neuter OptionsAsk your family veterinarian about spaying or neutering your pet. Ideally, animals should be fixed at a young age to maximally prevent unwanted litters, undesirable behaviors and certain hormone-related diseases.
For those with financial concerns, there are many resources for low-cost spay and neuter surgery. A few local programs are listed below, but you can use the ASPCA’s low-cost spay/neuter locator for other options in your area.
These services are not run by the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine but by local non-profit organizations. The prices listed on this website are for use as guidelines only and may have changed since this page was last updated.
A wide variety of options are available for low-cost spay and neuter for residents of Yolo County.
