General Information

Critters Without LittersKern County's Low Cost Spay/Neuter Option
Established in 2012 Critters Without Litters is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization founded in 2012 to directly address the pet overpopulation issue by opening the first dedicated high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter clinic in Kern County. We believe directly addressing the issue through high-volume, low-cost spay and neuter services will result in a steep reduction in the number of companion animals entering our shelters. Fewer pets in our shelter system will allow more time and resources towards promoting positive outcomes for each animal in their care. Critters Without Litters relies solely on community support and grant funding to operate the clinic.
