The demand for high-quality/low-cost spay & neuter services in the Sacramento region exceeded the capacity in our community years ago. The lack of adequate clinic space, a national shortage of veterinary staff and increased demand for pet adoption during the pandemic has further stressed the veterinary resources in our region.
Opening the Zoe K. McCrea Animal Health Center has already increased surgery capacity at the Sacramento SPCA in 2021 and positioned the organization to meet growing needs of pets and the people who love them in our community by doubling surgery capacity over the next 5 years.
The new health center is saving more pets' lives: by decreasing the number of unwanted animals that enter our region’s public shelters; getting more animals out of shelters and into homes; and providing early detection and treatment of the kinds of high-cost illnesses that force many families to surrender their animals.
