New Spay/Neuter Program

image description

Woof, meow and thank you to the East Bay SPCA! Thanks to a new partnership, FAAS is now able to spay and neuter its own shelter animals for the first time in our history.

One day a week, FAAS staff, volunteers, and Dr. Christine Tang, a high-volume spay/neuter veterinarian contracted by FAAS, are allowed to use the EBSPCA Spay/Neuter Surgery Center in Oakland. FAAS no longer has to transport our shelter animals long distances or wait weeks to do a spay or neuter because a clinic is too busy to fit us in. That means we can send animals home with their new owners immediately, and adopt out more animals faster. Win! Special thanks to EBSPCA CEO Allison Lindquist!
