Spay San Jose

Low-Cost Spay and Neuter Programs
in San Jose and Silicon Valley

Last updated: September 23, 2019


City of San Jose 

Residents of  San Jose, Cupertino, Los Gatos, Milpitas, Saratoga.
Location: San Jose Animal Care Center, 2750 Monterey Road, San Jose, CA 95111-3120

Services for pet cats, feral cats, and pet dogs (chihuahuas/chihuahua mix only).

Two options for feral cats:

1. " Feral Freedom" program 

*** NOTE: As of August 2019, the San Jose Animal Care Center's Feral Freedom program is over-capacity and they are asking that community members only use this program if you can't find another suitable resource. Also, because the clinic only does spay neuter surgeries Mondays through Thursdays, please try to avoid dropping off cats for this program Friday through Sundays.

2. Regular Spay Neuter Program

As of September 2019 , the San Jose Animal Care Center has told us they are limiting the number of feral cats that they will accept under the regular program on any given day to as few as 6 cats shelter-wide. To reduce the chances you are turned away, we recommend you plan to arrive at or before 8AM so you are one of the first people in line. If you are turned away from the regular spay neuter program , you can use the Feral Freedom program or one of the other resources on this list and if you can't locate one, email  TNR@13thstcats.org  for advice.
