Upcoming Events

  • When: March 11, 2017 from 7:30 AM 4:00 PM

    We believe animal health and welfare is everyone’s responsibility, including controlling the size of the local animal population. One way we do this is through weekly spay and neuter clinics for qualifying low-income Sonoma County residents.

Love Me, Fix Me Access Program

Our Love Me, Fix Me Access Program offers low-cost spay/neuter appointments for qualifying low-income pet owners. This new program aims to remove barriers to spaying and neutering pets and ensure that all Sonoma County residents have access to affordable spay/neuter services.

A Love Me, Fix Me appointment for your dog or cat includes spay or neuter surgery and microchip. Dogs receive rabies vaccinations if needed, and a dog license if applicable. 

How to Qualify

  1. Review the qualification requirements listed on the first page of the Love Me, Fix me application form.
  2. Complete and return the Love me, Fix Me Access application form to Sonoma County Animal Services.
    • By email: theanimalshelter@sonoma-county.org, or
    • By fax: (707) 565-7112, or
    • By mail: Love Me, Fix Me Access Program, Sonoma County Animal Services, 1247 Century Court, Santa Rosa, CA 95403

Qualifying applicants will be contacted to schedule a surgery date.

Co-pay Fees

Cat spay/neuter surgery: $30

Dog spay/neuter surgery: $55

Payment is due at the time of surgery, cash or check only, please.
