while you are there they can be heartworm tested, vacc'd and chipped for an extra fee..


I'm in Manteca, would I have to be a Sac Co. resident for this program?

Are you in touch with PBRC or did you only check the web site? I emailed them a while back & they found a Spay Neuter clinic in the next county for me to use. None of the 3 vet's in my county participated in SpayUSA etc. although PBRC would've paid a local to do it for me. They just found a lower cost place.

They apparently negotiated the price too because according to a news paper article on the clinic recently, the prices are $10 cheaper than the normal cost there. They are paying for all 5 of my dogs to be done on Jan 17th & 18th. It's over a $500 savings over having them done at my own vet's office. PBRC only pays for the surgery itself, but that's a huge help! I have to pay for any anesthesia, pain meds, & all the shots that are due. It seems every one of the dogs need a shot update or a heartworm test that's due in the next month, so I'm doing them all at the clinic where it's $5 each.

I think I was assigned a contact there because whenever I emailed them, I heard back from the same volunteer every time. Usually, the next day if not sooner. She is a member here but she said she hasn't posted in a while. Does anyone remember nanny dog? I saw a nan on the member list, I wondered if it was her.

Anyways, back to the topic...krista, email PBRC directly to see if they can find a clinic for you to use that's closer to home. If they can't, they can help you have it done at your own vet's office.

Another Reno pit bull owner! I was just about to post that information, jazminesgranny. Haha.

I found out about their program while searching for low cost spay clinics as I'll be taking in my dad's APBT girl, Lily, when he moves to the Cayman Islands (yes, I'm very jealous) in about a month and getting her spayed is priority numero uno!

They'll also microchip your APBT for you. :thumbsup:

We are going through Pets ALIVE right now.

http://www.petsalivespayneuter.org/index.htm

They serve central Indiana. We are going through the Humane Society of Putnam County. Pets ALIVE comes to your town and will pick up the dog and transport it to their facility.

$55 is the cheapest I've found so far.

Just thought I'd add this part about Pit Bulls.

PETS ALIVE RECEIVES FUNDING FOR "GREAT PIT FIX OF SOUTHERN INDIANA"
MATCHING GRANT OPPORTUNITY - Money to be used to subsidize surgeries for Pit Bull Dogs
Pets ALIVE Spay/Neuter Clinic was awarded a $5,000 grant from a national foundation, to be used to provide much needed subsidies for Pit Bull Dogs in our region. Pit Bulls and Pit Bull mixes are athletic, active, people-friendly, and intelligent—but unfortunately they are plentiful in shelters. The funds from the Great Pit Fix will be used to help local citizens spay or neuter their dogs to decrease the number entering our shelters. Read more about pit bulls at www.animalfarmfoundation.org, also www.pbrc.net/, and www.badrap.org/rescue/myths.cfm.

ADDITIONAL FUNDING IS AVAILABLE FOR THIS LIFE-SAVING PROGRAM THROUGH A MATCHING GRANT OPPORTUNITY
Please help us reach our goal! In addition to the $5,000 grant, this national foundation will MATCH DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR any donations received to support the Pets ALIVE Great Pit Fix. Help us help these beautiful dogs. Call Pets ALIVE at 824-1349 to receive the correct donor form.

Pit Bull Spay/Neuter resources - Los Angeles

Postby Daphnesmom » Mon Feb 25, 2008 6:12 pm

I have a few people signed up for the free pit training classes Villalobos will be putting on again, and I've been able to politely encourage spaying and neutering. Some want to, just really can't afford to do it.

I've given out the PBRC link, LA AS, and Actors for Animals. Pasadena Humane would be a no brainer but most of these people are not in the cities they serve. One is in Whittier.

Are there other resources out there? I would have thought for a city with such a huge pit bull pop problem, they would have a real focus on providing low cost services.....argh.

Closest Friends of Animals vet for me is 1 1/2 hours away and in NY rather than PA. They also do micro-chipping which they do not do here in my area at least not that I am aware of. Hopefully the fact I live in PA won't make a difference.

Thanks for this sticky.

i guess i overpaid. I'm looking at an $800+ bill after taxes.

brought my dog into the Rutherford animal hospital this morning, picking up tomorrow after noon. I opted for the bloodwork(like $80), microchip($50), and the overnight stay which was $45.

the total bill looks like it's going to be about 850 :crybaby:

he's 2.5 years old, i know i'm getting this done a little late. but better late than never right.
