High Quality Pet Spay/Neuter for Less!

Owning a pet is an expensive endeavor. They're like children - you need to feed them, toilet them, take them to the doctor's, buy them toys.... it all adds up. So why on earth would someone want to dole out more money by buying a pet when you can get great pets through adoption!?

If you adopt a cat or dog from a Massachusetts shelter, it is a requirement that the animal be spayed or neutered. If the animal is old enough, it will be spayed before adoption and the adoption fee may be a bit higher. If the animal is too young, you, as the adopter, are required to sign paperwork stating you will have the animal spayed by a certain deadline. If you do not follow through and provide documentation, the shelter can pursue legal action.

In the state of Rhode Island, it is a law that any cat over the age of 6 months must be spayed or neutered. The only exception is if you have a license for breeding or if you have a letter from the veterinarian stating the cat cannot be spayed due to age or other medical reasons.

Buy spaying and neutering can be EXPENSIVE!

If you need to spay or neuter your cat or dog, check out some of these low-cost clinics in Massachusetts. This list has been put together by the Massachusetts Animal Coalition.  And here is a list of low-cost clinics in Rhode Island which has been compiled by Dog Lover's Digest. Often times you can opt to have your pet receive vaccinations, such as rabies and distemper in cats or rabies and parvo in dogs, during the spay appointment for an additional, yet subsidized cost.
