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.


On September 29th, with generous support from the ASPCA, we are hosting a special spay/neuter clinic with DOUBLE CAPACITY! This clinic will provide surgeries for 75 pets, including large dogs, at no cost for those who qualify as low-income in any of the zip codes listed below.

Whittier Narrows Park and Recreation Area, 750 S. Santa Anita Ave, S. El Monte, 91733
323.963.4299 or ayuda@barkavenuefoundation.org for information & to make an appointment

Most of our clinics are restricted to cats and small and medium-sized dogs because of limited space in the mobile unit, but this clinic will use both a mobile rig and an indoor community room so that we can provide spay/neuter to pets of all sizes! The clinic will also run all day and will service TWICE AS MANY pets as a regular clinic for TWICE THE IMPACT!

Spaying and neutering our pets saves literally thousands of lives for each pet altered. It also gives animals in shelters a fighting chance at finding their forever homes while preventing any accidental puppies and kittens frome ending up in the shelters. There are so many levels to the amazing effectiveness of spay/neuter on creating a better world for animals, but we’d be here all day if we went into ALL of them, so we’ll just reiterate that it is the most effective way to save animals and keep our pets safe and healthy! Adopting all of our pets from shelters or rescues (rather than buying or breeding) is also paramount, and as a bonus, when you adopt from a shelter or rescue your dog or cat is already spayed/neutered.
