The veterinarians at San Francisco Animal Care & Control take care of the shelter animals. ACC does not provide veterinary services for the general public. However, ACC holds two clinics for residents of San Francisco and their pets:

Spay/Neuter Mobile Clinic

The Go Nuts! mobile clinic van provides spay/neuter surgery at ACC every third Thursday of the month. Pets owned by SF residents are eligible. The mobile clinic is provided by Peninsula Humane Society. Pets are accepted from 8:00-9:00 am on a first come, first served basis. One pet per family; dogs and cats only; no dogs over 80 lbs and no pets over 8 yrs old. For details, including pre-surgery instructions, call (650) 340-7022 x387. Read about the benefits of spaying/neutering your pet.

SFACC’s partner, the SFSPCA, offers discounts for local rescues and low-income SF residents, as well as free spay/neuter services for Pit Bull mix dogs and feral cats.

Low-Cost Rabies and Microchip Clinic

ACC Rabies/Microchip Clinics are held four times a year. Microchips are free for San Francisco residents with licensed dogs. Dog licenses are sold on site at the shelter (fees vary). Microchips are $20 for those outside San Francisco. Rabies vaccinations are $6 and are required for the license. Sponsored by Friends of SFACC and SFVMA. Contact the shelter at (415) 554-6364 for clinic dates.
