The Chula Vista Animal Care Facility encourages owners to always spay and neuter their pets. There is a serious pet overpopulation problem in San Diego County. By spaying or neutering your pet, you can be part of the solution!
We offer limited appointments for low cost public spay/neuter surgery for residents from any zip code. The cost is $75.
Income qualifying residents from Chula Vista, National City, and Lemon Grove may qualify for FREE!*
Animals must be two months or older and be in good health.
Special Cat Clinic in February
We will have a limited number of cat appointments for Chula Vista, Lemon Grove, and National City residents on the CVACF Spay Shuttle. Applicants will need to come in to sign forms, provide proof of residency and pay $10. All other San Diego County residents will have the opportunity to sign up for a low-cost appointment on the SNAP Neuter Scooter for just $30. Click here to fill out an interest form.
Here’s how it works:
On the 2nd Tuesday of each month we open the surgery spots for the following month. Spots fill up quickly so we encourage you to come in then. After that you can come in to sign up, but spots are filled on a first come, first served basis.
On surgery day you will drop off your dog or cat to the CVACF (130 Beyer Way) at 8am on the date your dog or cat has been scheduled for surgery. Pick up is usually between 2:00 - 3:30 pm. After 3:30 pm, boarding charges will apply
*You will need to provide proof of residency (e.g. utility bill, rental agreement, or mortgage statement) and income verification (e.g., SSI, AFDC, Medical, WIC, EBT)
