Spay/Neuter Assistance Program

Spay & Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP)

The SNAP program was established to provide Placer County residents with free or subsidized spay and neuter services for their cats, dogs and rabbits. Please see below for cost and services for the type of animal you have. For other low-cost spay and neuter services, visit www.sacanimal.org.

Owned Cats

Owned Cats

We offer subsidized spay and neuter services for cats whose owners reside in Placer County. To get your cat spayed or neutered, we require a $10 co-pay per individual cat. Payment will be due at the time of service. For owned cats, we encourage you to schedule a clinic appointment with us. Please be sure to register early, as these clinics fill quickly.

Mobile Clinic Registration

In partnership with AnimalSave, we offer Mobile Spay and Neuter Clinics at 99 Yosemite St., Roseville 95678.

To reserve your place, click on the appropriate box below.

Please note: You must choose only one date to register an animal. If you register the same animal for more than one clinic, your registration will be canceled and you’ll be prevented from signing up for future clinics. At this time, we have a two animal limit. If you have more than two animals that you would like to make appointments for at our mobile clinic, please email us at snap@placerspca.org so that we can put your additional animals on a wait-list for the date you’d like to make an appointment for.

Public Clinic Registration (cats only)

Public clinics are held at Placer SPCA Roseville Companion Animal Center, at 150 Corporation Yard Rd., Roseville 95678.

2015 Public Clinic dates coming soon!

Please note: online registration is available for cats only.
