Spay Day Sacramento

On February 26, 2017, the Sacramento Area Animal Coalition (SAAC) partnered with local veterinary clinics, animal shelters, and the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine to spay and neuter 300 dogs and cats belonging to income qualified families.

Since 2000, more than 10,000 dogs and cats have been altered through Spay Day Sacramento -- preventing the births of thousands of unwanted puppies and kittens and reducing the burden on area shelters.

Spay Day is held once a year, typically on the last Sunday in February.
