There is a pet overpopulation problem in Riverside County, resulting in too many animals and not enough homes to place them in. However, we can prevent the birth of unwanted animals and work toward a day when there are no more homeless pets by spaying and neutering our own cats and dogs, as well as feral cats within our neighborhoods.

The Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center offers financial assistance to low-income families with qualifying limited incomes for the spaying or neutering of their pets.

Qualifications are based on the applicant's monthly/yearly gross income and the number of persons living in a household unit. A sliding scale, similar to those used by social service agencies & PG&E, is used to determine eligibility for financial assistance.

Funding for this program is provided by California for All Animals, an initiative powered by the UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program

The spay/neuter assistance fund has limited financial aid available and was provided by a grant from California for All Animals, an initiative powered by the UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program.  The intent of the grant is to assist as many pet owners as possible with priority given to high intake zip codes.

Once we have received your application and documents, your information will be reviewed, and you will be contacted via email or phone call with the next steps. Once approved, pet owners will need pay a $20 co-pay to receive services and hold your appointment.  This is a non-refundable fee.
