Low-cost and free spaying/neutering

Through neutering or spaying, you can help your dog and cat live a happier, healthier, and longer life and also help reduce pet overpopulation.

Our mission is to reduce animal suffering by cutting the number of unwanted animals through spaying and neutering. We offer several programs to make it easy for you to spay or neuter your best friend.

The Santa Fe Animal Shelter's Spay/Neuter Clinic & Wellness Clinic, 2570 Camino Entrada, offers many options for altering your dog or cat. Please call 474-6422 to find out what program is the best for you and your furry friend.

About Adoptions

If you have made the careful decision to bring a companion animal into your life, chances are that the Santa Fe Animal Shelter has a dog, cat, kitten, puppy, ferret, rabbit, guinea pig, or other fuzzy critter that will match your home and lifestyle.

Matchmaking is an important part of our adoption process, and we pride ourselves on helping hopeful animal lovers find a companion that will fit their lifestyle. Think about how much time you have to spend with a new animal. Think about the time involved: a healthy puppy can live for 15 to 20 years! Remember that settling in a new four-legged family member can take some time and adjustment. Bear in mind that just like us, your companion animal will need food and supplies and have to visit a doctor from time to time.

We invite you to visit our animals in the shelter, at our satellite adoption facility inside PetSmart (3561 Zafarano Drive) or online. Once you have an idea what you’re looking for, one of our adoption counselors will visit with you and share some ideas about which of our residents would be best suited to you.

All animals are spayed or neutered and microchipped before leaving and receive the required age-appropriate vaccines. The required licenses for city and county residents are available at the shelter as you adopt!

Adoption is a partnership between the adopter, the shelter and the animal. We are committed to making that partnership work for everyone.
