Committed to solving the pet overpopulation issue by offering safe, affordable spay/neuter services to pet owners in Kern County. Tax ID 27-1606167


Critters Without Litters is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization that provides high-volume, high-quality, subsidized companion animal sterilization. We seek to end the preventable euthanasia of healthy, adoptable pets in Kern County through strong alliances with the community, local businesses and nonprofit organizations to increase the number of cats and dogs that are spayed and neutered.

Spay/neuter is a crucial component to solving the complex problem of pet overpopulation in Kern County. In 2014, nearly 14,000 cats and dogs were killed in Kern County shelters. We believe directly addressing the issue through high-volume, low-cost spay and neuter services will result in a steep reduction in the number of companion animals entering our shelters. Fewer pets in our shelter system will allow more time and resources towards promoting positive outcomes for each animal in their care.

Our philosophy is rooted in forming alliances with national and local nonprofits, local businesses and the community as a whole. Through collaboration, we seek to create a community where every pet has a home to call their own.
