Prevent Unwanted Births
We offer innovative, accessible, and targeted spay/neuter services that ultimately reduce the number of animals coming into community shelters. The ongoing success of these programs provides the foundation for preventing homelessness of companion animals. Without us, unwanted births would skyrocket, driving greater numbers of animals into shelters and dramatically increasing the number of lives lost.
We have the potential to make an even greater impact than what’s already been achieved. By expanding and further targeting our spay/neuter programs and rescue efforts, we can save thousands more lives and eventually ensure that every pet in Silicon Valley has a loving home.
All shelter animals in our care are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Additionally, we offer the following programs:
TRAP NEUTER RETURN (TNR)
We spay/neuter cats at no charge to cat colony caretakers. We also provide vaccines and microchip each cat for identification.
PORTIA'S TARGETED SPAY/NEUTER PROGRAM
This first-of-its-kind program provides free spay/neuter surgeries to cats, dogs, and rabbits in five zip codes driving the greatest number of animals into community shelters. Surgeries are performed at our medical center, and in partnership with San Jose Animal Care and Services.
PREVENT UNWANTED PREGNANCIES (PUP)
Moms and their litters are altered at no cost to owners who are unable to pay for surgeries. Moms are returned to their homes and we find new homes for the puppies and kittens.
LOW COST SPAY/NEUTER CLINIC
We provide affordable and accessible spay/neuter surgeries for the public.
RESCUE PARTNER DISCOUNTS
We offer reduced fees to rescue groups in support of their efforts.
