Sacramento and Yolo County residents with an annual household income of $35,000 or less can have up to two pets spayed or neutered at participating veterinary clinics on or around March 6 as part of Spay Day Sacramento 2011. Spay Day is organized by the Sacramento Area Animal Coalition (SAAC). 

There are currently 100 appointments available for male cats and a few appointments left for male and female dogs weighing more than 25 pounds. No appointments are available for female cats or dogs weighing less than 25 pounds. 

Each animal will receive about $250 worth of services including spay/neuter surgery, permanent microchip identification, vaccinations and flea preventive. Proof of income is required. Applicants will receive instructions on submitting proof of income when they complete the online application.

Naughty puppy, bad kitty!

Sacramento police dogs raising money through calendar

SACRAMENTO, CA - Four-legged members of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department have a new job -- they're furry calendar models.

Dogs from the department's K9 unit are featured in a 2011 calendar designed to raise funds for the nonprofit Sacramento Sheriff K9 Association.

A 3-year-old German shepherd named Ronin is Mr. June. He's shown posing dramatically with his handler on the bank of the American River as a sheriff's helicopter hovers overhead.

The money raised will help pay training  costs for working dogs and medical costs for retired animals.

The calendars are $20 and can be ordered on the Sacramento County Sheriff's K9 Association Website through their online store.

Pet owners get financial break

Sacramento and Yolo County pet owners can now apply to have their pets spayed or neutered for just $20 per dog and $15 per cat as part of “Spay Day Sacramento” on March 6.  This is a savings of 90 percent or more on this routine, but important veterinary procedure.  Spaying or neutering dogs and cats leads to better health and improved behavior and reduces the number of animals entering area shelters.

Qualifying pet owners must be either Sacramento or Yolo County residents and have an annual household income of $35,000 or less.  There is a 2 animal (dog and/or cat) limit per household.  Proof of income will be required.
