Spay/Neuter Centers


The East Bay SPCA has long realized that the solution to the plight of homeless pets is not only more adoption homes, but access to spay and neuter surgery. The East Bay SPCA was one of the first animal welfare organizations in our community to direct that no animal would leave our facility unaltered. Since 1998, we have performed more than 150,000 surgeries!

Spay and Neuter Tattoo

Starting on August 1st, 2016, the East Bay SPCA Theodore B. Travers Family Veterinarian Clinic, Dublin and Oakland Spay/Neuter Centers will all participate in “tattooing” shelter, rescue and client owned animals that are in our care for spay/neuter surgery.

Why a tattoo?

    • To identify that an animal no longer has internal reproductive organs (spayed or neutered). A scar at the site of a spay/neuter surgery does not necessarily mean the animal was fixed.
    • Quickly identify if an animal has been spay/neutered and avoid unnecessary surgery of the abdomen.

What does the tattoo look like?

    • A small, green, straight-line applied to the spay/neuter incision while the animal is under anesthesia.
    • Green ink is used because it can be recognized easily and cannot be mistaken for natural pigmentation. The tattoo ink does not increase the risk of infection.

Benefits of tattooing during spay/neuter surgeries

    • Helps animals avoid future unnecessary exploratory surgeries.
    • Discreet and painless, the tattoo is performed while the animal is still under anesthesia – does not require another procedure.

Rescue Groups or Clients

If you do not want to have your animal tattooed during the spay/neuter procedure, we recommend that you have the surgery performed at the veterinary hospital of your choice.
