As the largest nonprofit spay and neuter animal welfare organization in California, our vision is to ensure that spay, neuter and veterinary wellness services are affordable and accessible to all pet owners in the Los Angeles area and to create an environment in which animal shelters no longer rely on euthanizing animals as a way of controlling pet population. SNP LA has spayed and neutered over 100,000 cats and dogs — preventing millions of animals from being born into homelessness.

Things to Consider

close (x)

Has your pet been spayed/neutered?

Schedule your appointment today by calling 310-574-5555! Spaying or neutering your pet will prolong their life and will make for a better pet. It's also the law in Los Angeles that all cats and dogs need to be spayed or neutered. Visit our BLOG to get more information.

Is spaying/neutering safe?

Yes! Surgery for spaying and neutering is safe for your pet. The risks of NOT spaying or neutering far outweigh any risk of anesthesia. While our prices are low, we offer exceptionally high-quality care. Your pet’s wellbeing is our top priority. If you want to find out more about the benefits of spaying and neutering click here.

Are your pet's vaccinations up to date?

Come see us at any of our vaccine clinics. We can also perform vaccines at the time of surgery. If you have specific questions about what vaccines your pet needs, we will be able to answer those questions at the clinic or you can read our vaccine blogs.

Where is the nearest SNP LA location?

We offer our programs at three locations: San Pedro (adjacent to the Harbor Animal Shelter off of 110 freeway); Van Nuys (adjacent to the East Valley Animal Shelter off of 405 and 101 freeways); and Pico Rivera (off of 605 and 5 freeways). Visit our locations page for additional information.

How much will it cost?

SNP LA offers highly subsidized surgeries to low income communities in Los Angeles. Additionally, we offer free and discounted spay/neuter surgery for those residents living in specific zip codes and through our partnership with the City and County of Los Angeles and private animal welfare organizations that provide vouchers for free and discounted spay/neuter. Please see our price list here.

Have you made an appointment?

Make an appointment today by calling 310-574-5555! We require appointments for all of our surgeries - we will not be able to take your pet for surgery unless you have made an appointment. Our Low Cost Vaccine Clinics are available on walk-in basis, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at all of our locations on the days that we are open.

Do you provide other services at your clinic?

Yes, we do! We offer vaccinations, flea/tick/earmite treatments, deworming, microchips, nail trims, blood panels, and pre-anesthetic blood tests (highly recommended for pets over six years old). If your pet requires medical attention unrelated to spay/neuter, our Wellness Clinic at our Pico Rivera location is open Sunday - Tuesday. If your pet needs medical attention, please make an appointment today by calling 310-574-5555.
