Spay and Neuter Services

Animal Fix Clinic reduces suffering by keeping animals healthy and in their homes, whether those homes are indoor or outdoor. We offer high-quality, high-volume spay/neuter services to address animal overpopulation and to reduce the risk of health complications.

Our TNR (trap-neuter-release) package for community cats is $45. This includes a rabies and FVRCP vaccine, parasite treatment, an ear tip, and a microchip. This service ensures the cat can lead a healthy life, without reproducing, reducing stress on the existing cat population. This low-cost service also ensures that more people can participate in taking care of the cats in their neighborhood.

We also work with many local TNR groups, who bring in dozens of animals to us each week. In 2020, we helped 2,671 community cats!

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our aim is to methodically use targeted spay-neuter and humane education community by community, to humanely reduce cat and dog overpopulation in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.

Additionally, we assist our partner non-profit animal rescue groups and municipal shelters by offering them low-cost spay-neuter for the animals and people they serve.

1. Access to affordable spay-neuter.
2. Collaboration with non-profit animal rescue groups.
3. Collaboration with local municipal shelters to prevent cat and dog
turn-ins and euthanasias.
4. Expand safety-net services (low-cost surgeries) for low-income
community members, so they can afford to keep their beloved
pets.

We have a long and very positive history of providing services to East Bay community members, and collaborating with local municipal shelters and animal welfare groups.

And the centerpiece of our current strategy is our exceptional clinical team of specialists in high-quality high-volume spay-neuter, led by Jean Goh, D.V.M. and Robin Post, R.V.T., who formerly directed the San Francisco SPCA's spay-neuter clinic.

The team is dedicated to providing high-quailty, compassionate care, and expanding the safety net for animals and their people in our high-cost community.

We know our model of targeted spay-neuter works! In the City of Berkeley, where Fix Our Ferals got its start. Massive, targeted spay-neuter of cats and feral cat t-n-r accomplished an 87% reduction in municipal shelter euthanasias.

Affordable and accessible spay-neuter is very limited in the East Bay, and our high-quality high-volume spay-neuter team help to fill this void. This is allowing us to set ambitious targets for working in our low-income communities to achieve the same success we were able to in Berkeley.
