Spay/neuter options in Kern County California

Some low cost spay/neuter options

Kern County Animal Control
Main number: 868-7100
Web site:
To be eligible, families must be 150 percent above the federal poverty level.
Participants must complete an eligibility application and if you are eligible, you must pay a $20 co-payment up front (cash, check or credit card).
Once the co-pay is received, the county will issue a voucher for the entire cost of the surgery.
The vouchers don’t cover “extras” such as if the pet is pregnant, or ill and follow up care is the owner’s responsibility.
Vouchers have expiration dates so you must get the surgery before it expires.
It’s important to get your pets weight right so the surgeon knows how much anesthsia is required.
The county has participating veterinarians in Bakersfield, Delano, Lebec, Ridgecrest and Wasco.
You can pick up an application at any of the shelters or call the county or go online.
Limit four vouchers per person per lifetime.

SPCA - H.O.P.E. Program
Bakersfield SPCA: 323-8353
Web site: http://www.bakersfieldspca....
The H.O.P.E. Foundation picks up pets at the SPCA, 3000 Gibson Street, twice a month, on Mondays, and takes them to its facility in Fresno for alteration surgeries. Animals stay overnight.
Owners make arrangements and pay through the SPCA. They then drop off and pick up their animals at the Gibson Street location.
Cats, spay $55, neuter, $45
Dogs, between $65 and $115 depending on type of surgery and weight.
Rabies vaccinations are required for all animals. If proof cannot be provided there is an additional $12 charge for a vaccination prior to transport.
Medi-Cal holders can apply to the Kern Humane Society (325-2589) for assistance.
