Los Angeles Offers Dogs Free Spay/Neuter Surgery

Spay Day LA comes just days after the city council approves a mandatory spay/neuter ordinance for dogs and cats.

The city of Los Angeles is having its first-ever “Spay Day LA” on Feb. 24, 2008, to provide free spay and neuter services to dogs and cats, feral and domestic.

Spay Day LA is the culmination of efforts from both public and private organizations, resulting in free altering services at various locations throughout the city that day.

The city-wide event comes on the heels of a mandatory spay/neuter ordinance that received final approval by the Los Angeles City Council on Feb. 12. Under the new ordinance, all cats and dogs ages four months and older must be altered unless they qualify for certain exemptions, such as those in competition, service animals, or animals whose veterinarians deem the procedure medically unsafe.
