Since 1992, SPAN has made it their mission to reduce dog and cat overpopulation throughout Ventura County by raising public awareness about the direct consequences of irresponsible breeding.

Today more than ever, responsible dog & cat owners like you play the most significant role in the solution to overpopulation by spaying and neutering your pets. SPAN shares in that responsibility by providing financial assistance to pet owners who would otherwise be unable to pay for this procedure. In fact, SPAN is directly responsible for having spayed or neutered thousands of dogs and cats since its inception.

“SPAN receives hundreds of requests for financial assistance every year. Our ability to offer assistance to pet owners is directly related to our legacy gifts, unrestricted cash donations and Thrift Store sales. Thanks to our ALL VOLUNTEER STAFF at SPAN, we are proud to say that 100% of our income is used towards spay and neuter procedures.”  -SPAN Board of Directors   

“In the past ten years we see fewer and fewer pups and kittens, a phenomenon that
must be attributed to all of the spay / neuter surgeries.”
