Im in California, so I do not have a clue for anything where you are located. Have you tried calling the shelters to see if they have any spay clinics?

As for your question ... I spayed my girl at 4months old. She is now 18 months, and weighs in aboput 50 pounds. It didn't seem to phase her being spayed at a young age. She still has her nice tight belly and figure because she was spayed before ever going into heat. My girl seemed to mature very nicely and in good shape :peace:
I have also heard the risk of certain cancers goes up if you wait to spay after the first heat .. I maybe wrong, or misunderstood so it is something you may want to find out as well ... Good Luck ~ Deb & Tonka

Wanted to pass along some info for PENNSYLVANIA RESIDENTS in Harrisburg or around the area.

The CPAA offers De-Sex in the city which is a FREE Spay/Neuter for Pit Bulls. Shots also if they need them.
This program has extended itself, I just spoke to the woman in charge this evening

You DO NOT need to be a resident of Harrisburg to use the program.

If you are in the surrounding areas contact them. If they do not have a vet in your area you may have to travel an hour if that to get to a participating vet.

If you would like more information on spaying or neutering your pet, please contact Michele at 717-576-0899 or michele@cpaa.info.

I looked into low cost spaying and neutering and i know this sounds selfish but they base it on the household income. Not just mine. I have an appt for my girl tomorrow but its going to cost me $280. The low cost places i looked into required a months paystubs plus a utility bill, plus they want the entire household income. I dont make nearly what my DH makes. But with his income we're not eligible. Anyone know of a day coming up that offers free/low cost spaying? Occasionally petco or petsmart will do a benefit, just couldnt find anything.

The Spayed Club does low cost speutering and has special rates for rescue groups as well.

The Spayed Club
800 Chester Pike
Sharon Hill, PA 19079

484-540-8436

appointments@thespayedclub.org


The rates are also not based on your income. They are top notch (have used them through a rescue group) and provide vaccinations as well. All of the care is the same that you would receive in the most expensive vet clinics in the area and the vets are stellar. Can't recommend these guys enough!

In Waterbury, CT the HOPE Clinic recently opened, free spay and neuter for all pits, and insanely low rates for everyone else!!! Cats and dogs
I just paid $122 for the full works including spay, shots, flea treatment, dewormer and a nail trim for a 26 lb mix I am fostering
Also a green tattoo on her tummy in case she ever gets picked up (won't happen) and they do ear clipping for ferals

I looked up the lowcost spay/neutering and theirs none in my area :-(, but I have an important question that would really help me out. My vet does males for $105 & females $140 BUT the humane society does it for like $30-$60, I dont mind paying the vet to do it but is their a difference in procedure? I heard a lot about peoples pets getting fixed at humane societys and having health problems or messed up afterwards, so I feel that if I pay my vet its getting done the professional way and I getting my moneys worth, ofcouse id love to pay $60 but not if its not gonna be done right, I have no probles paying the $140 if it makes a difference, I was told that they put them under differently and do the procedure without to much care? Someone help me their already 5 months and I have to make up my mind soon. Thankyou.

This is in the Metro Detroit area... All About Animals
For awhile they were advertising $10 spay, but I think the usual price is around $80, and they hold regular vaccine clinics for the community.
