In Bakersfield, as in many places, the number of stray cats and dogs explodes in cycles as those strays manage to mix with each other and pets with homes, to produce litters of unwanted and often uncared for animals. The sad result is that many of these animals’ lives are short, miserable, and often end in being euthanized or worse. The single most responsible way to control the unwanted animal population is to spay or neuter our pets.
And the single most affordable place to do that in Bakersfield is Critters Without Litters located at:
4300 Stine Road, Suite 720
Bakersfield, CA 93313
They are open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. through 3:30 p.m. and because they are a a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization – they provide high-volume, high-quality, subsidized companion animal sterilization. They seek to end the preventable euthanasia of healthy, adoptable pets in Kern County through strong alliances with the community, local businesses and nonprofit organizations to increase the number of cats and dogs that are spayed and neutered, while promoting animal health and safety within our community.
Definitely call for an appointment. They accept vouchers and you can see their rates for spay and neuter as well as a host of other services on their website at www.CrittersWithoutLitters.org .
And remember that spaying/neutering your pet has many other benefits besides population control:
