Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic:

Several programs, including Gatos de Santa Fe,  help support our efforts to reduce animal overpopulation through low-cost or no-fee altering.  Click here for more information.

Shelter Clinic:

  • Located on the shelter campus at 100 Caja del Rio Rd, this behind-the-scenes clinic provides medical care for all of our injured, homeless and unwanted animals.  Every animal that enters the shelter receives a physical exam, appropriate vaccines, and spay/neuter surgery prior to adoption.
