Pet spay and neuter services require an appointment. Please call 760-343-3477 or schedule with us online below to make an appointment. Spaying and neutering is a humane way to control animal overpopulation, significantly reduces the euthanasia of unwanted cats and dogs, and helps minimize public health problems. Studies show that non-altered animals are susceptible to more diseases, and consequently spayed and neutered cats and dogs lead longer lives.Comment on text

 

Animal Samaritans clinic specializes in performing spay/neuter surgeries. Our clinic is staffed by a licensed veterinarian and highly qualified support personnel. Spaying or neutering a companion animal is a humane means to reduce the overpopulation of dogs and cats and the resulting euthanasia it causes. Having a cat or dog spayed or neutered contributes to the animal’s health and well-being. On average, Animal Samaritans spays and neuters up to 8,000 animals per year.

WHY SPAY OR NEUTER?

Spaying & Neutering has become the core strategy in reducing cat & dog overpopulation and resulting euthanasia among animal rights groups around the world. And Animal Samaritans has been on the forefront of that movement from the very beginning.

Animal Samaritans was founded more than 4 decades ago with that core mission. Before the NoKill Movement even had a name: Animal Samaritans was there. Before Bob Barker reminded viewers to spay & neuter: Animal Samaritans was there.

Your pet could live longerspaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors, which are cancerous in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Neutering prevents testicular cancer and prostate problems

Females in heat can be messy & noisy, yowling/howling and sometimes urinating all over the house in a effort to attract a mate. Spaying eliminates that behavior.

Unneutered males face a biological urge to roam and are often creative about escaping from home. This puts your boy at risk of becoming lost or encountering dangerous car traffic.

Neutered males are better behaved. Neutering reduces unwanted male behavior like marking their territory (including in the house!) with urine or humping other pets opeople.

What Spaying & Neutering Doesn't Do

● Cause your pet to become overweight.

Weight problems in animals are caused by the same factors as in humans: food & exercise. As pet owners we are uniquely able to control those variables to help our friends stay fit and trim.

● Completely eliminate testosterone in males.

While neutering reduces high levels of testosterone, your male pets will continue to have some levels of the hormone in their systems.

● Make your loved one lazy

 While spaying & neutering does eliminate some destructive aggressive behavior, spaying & neutering does not cause decrease energy levels in pets.

Financial Stewardship

We know you have many choices when it comes to how to invest your philanthropic dollars, and Animal Samaritans takes seriously the stewardship of your investment in us.

The Wise Giving Alliance of the Better Business Bureau recommends that nonprofits not spend more than 35 cents on the dollar of its budget on administration and fundraising.

At Animal Samaritans that number is, year over year, close to 10 cents on the dollar. That means the other 90 cents goes to our mission and our services.

That’s just one of the reasons that Animal Samaritans, for more than 4 decades, has been among Southern California’s most trusted animal welfare organizations.
