Spay & Neuter!
Stop the cycle & suffering.

Free or Low Cost Spay/Neuter Programs (especially for feral cats/kittens). You can now help stop the vicious cycle of feral cat reproduction by trapping, spaying/neutering, and releasing feral cats in your area. Please contact the below listed agencies for assistence.

Animal Birth Control Assistance

408-244-8351 or 408-245-4949

Call for the name of a participating veterinarian in your area. They send you a voucher that is good for 60 days and you do the rest. The price is discounted, usually dependent on the animal's weight.

Note: This is a non-profit organization dedicated to decreasing the number of unwanted animals born to suffer and die. Animal Birth Control is a low-cost spay/neuter referral service working with several veterinarians in the South Bay. They raise money by holding garage sales with merchandise donated by people who believe in their cause.
