Spaying and neutering animals is our best defense against animal overpopulation and homelessness.
Marin Humane’s Spay/Neuter Clinic provides veterinary care for animals under our care, including those who arrive as strays, who are surrendered, or who are victims of abuse or neglect.
Animals are given a full medical assessment and vaccinated against disease. To prevent more pet homelessness, all adoption dogs and cats, and many small companion animals, are spayed or neutered before leaving for their new homes.
Our clinic team works extensively with our Foster Care program to rehabilitate many animals that might otherwise not be considered for adoption and works closely with the Animal Services department to evaluate and consult on cruelty and neglect cases.
The team also assists other animal rescue organizations and feral cat colony caretakers by providing discounted spay/neuter surgeries and health care.
Services and support for low-income residents
Our Pet Safety Net provides spay/neuter assistance for low-income Marin residents, as well as vaccinations, microchipping, and pet care support.
