In Summer of 2013, FOWAS began its investment in a low-cost spay and neuter clinic in Watsonville. FOWAS has teamed up with Planned PetHood to provide this facility. Now that the clinic is open, appointments can be made through the Watsonville Animal Shelter (call: 454-7200 ext #6) and the operations will be preformed here, at 150A Pennsylvania Drive, Watsonville.
