The San Antonio Animal Care Services provides free spay/neuter for pets living in the city's target ZIP codes. The free service can be availed by going to a clinic affiliated with the city's ACS and reserving a spot for their pets since most clinics can only accommodate a number of pets at a given day or time.

The Los Angeles Animal Services works in partnership with private nonprofit organizations that grant mobile clinics and offer free spay/neuter of pets of people who qualify for the service. Some mobile clinics also offer other surgical services, such as amputations, inguinal hernia repair and bladder stone removal. The city also provides city voucher programs to LA residents who do not live in the target area of the mobile clinics but still qualify in terms of income.

The Humane Society of the United States and PAWS provide free spay/neuter services for animals of low-income people living in specific areas. The HSUS also have a search tool that allows searches of low-cost spay/neuter programs in a specific city or state. Check with the local animal shelter or humane animal organization in your area to know if they are offering free or low-cost spay/neuter services.
