* Pit Bulls, Chows, and Rottweilers are breeds that are grossly overrepresented in San Diego County animal shelters. Therefore, to encourage owners of these breeds especially to spay and neuter their pets, we offer a special fee of $40 each, $10 discount for each group of 2 or more, for these three breeds and mixes thereof. Litter-Free Rebates may be available for low income residents serviced by the San Diego Department of Animal Services to help with cost.


Rabbits. SNAP does not alter rabbits on the Neuter Scooter. For information about low-cost spay/neuter services for rabbits in the San Diego area, please check out Services: Other Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Resources.

What's Included

All pricing includes the following:

~Spay/Neuter surgery**
~For dogs, a rabies vaccine is also included. If the dog has already had his/her rabies vaccination and only needs a license, the owner must bring proof of rabies paperwork to registration on the day of surgery. This paperwork must include vaccine manufacturer, vaccine name, lot #, veterinarian's information, and date of vaccination.
~Nail trim
~Advantage for patients on an "as needed basis" at the discretion of the SNAP staff. Patients found with fleas or tapeworms, will be treated at no additional charge.

~FREE id tags are also available to order at the Neuter Scooter thanks to Animal Trust Foundation.
~There is no additional charge for females "in heat," pregnancy, undescended testicles, overweight animals, etc.

**We recommend that owners of dogs or cats that have surgery go home with an Elizabethan collar (also called an E-collar or "cone") as a preventative measure. The collar may be purchased for an additional $5-Small and $10-Large.
