Free spay, neuter surgeries

Dogs and cats belonging to low-income households can receive free spay and neuter surgeries Tuesday, Feb. 27, thanks to teamwork by the East Bay SPCA and Bishop Ranch Veterinary Center and Urgent Care. More than $8,000 in surgical services is being underwritten by the two organizations.

"Any chance to partner with the Tri-Valley SPCA in an event like this is an opportunity to make a significant impact on the pet overpopulation problem as well as perform a valuable service to low-income residents of the area," said Dr. Frank Utchen, co-owner of Bishop Ranch Veterinary.

Utchen will work alongside Dr. Heidi Strand of the SPCA to perform the surgeries at the Dublin facility. The SPCA started its low-cost spay and neuter clinic in Oakland in 1998 and added a Tri-Valley clinic in 2004.
