About S.A.N.D.S.

Spay And Neuter of the Desert Society (S.A.N.D.S.) is a community based 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization made up of volunteers within the Imperial Valley.  Our mission is to facilitate the provision of low cost spay and neuter services for dogs and cats and to educate the public regarding the benefits of spaying and neutering animals within Imperial County.

SANDS works with our local veterinarians to offer low cost spaying and neutering services for dogs and cats through special clinics/appointments.

Costs will vary among the veterinary offices but expect a minimum of neuters $40 and spays $70 (both dogs & cats) during the one day low cost clinics. For specific co-pays please call 760-455-8254.

Currently, S.A.N.D.S is unable to continue its feral cat program. You may call the I.V.Humane Society for information on their program.
