About Spay the Bay

Spay the Bay, founded in 2016 by Berkeley Humane, offers low-cost spay and neuter services for dogs and cats in order to reduce animal overpopulation in the San Francisco Bay Area.

We are dedicated to providing spay and neuter services at the lowest cost possible so that pet guardians can access critical services and resources regardless of their financial abilities. We believe that when spay and neuter services are made accessible, pet guardians are more likely to spay and neuter their pets, which prevents the birth of unplanned litters and alleviates overcrowding in local shelters. 

In addition to providing low-cost spay and neuter services, Spay the Bay also provides the public with a centralized list of low-cost options in the Bay Area, making it easy for pet guardians in the local community to locate critical resources. 

Berkeley Humane and its programs and services, including Spay the Bay, are largely sustained by grants and contributions from the general public. Berkeley Humane is an independent, 501(c)3 non-profit organization (EIN #94-1347069) not affiliated with nor receive funding from the government and local or national animal welfare entities.
