Empowering pet owners and local communities to
reduce abandoned animal populations through spay
& neuter, pet retention & reclamation, and education.

We need your help. They need your love.

Spay & Neuter

Bark Avenue Foundation is tackling the pet overpopulation crisis through FREE and low-cost spay/neuter. The cost of fixing a pet is prohibitive for many pet owners resulting in accidental litters and animals surrendered to municipal shelters. Our goal is to make a significant impact on the  number of animals being abandoned and euthanized at our shelters.

If you live in Los Angeles County and you need help with spay/neuter, make an appointment  under “Get Help” on this site, or contact BAF at info@barkavenuefoundation.org.
