Mercer Veterinary Clinic for the Homeless is a program operated by student volunteers of the UC Davis Vet Med Teaching Hospital. The clinic operates out of Sacramento's Loaves & Fishes and offers free spay/neuter for animals of the homeless as well as routine health care services and holiday gift baskets around December of each year.

Please note, this clinic is for homeless and they do check.
