1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited.

Has anyone gotten their dog spayed through the ASPCA? I had a couple of people at our obedience class recommend looking into it because it's so much cheaper than going through my vet. I like the idea of spending less, but is it silly that it makes me a little nervous for that very reason?

Do you mean your local humane society? I got my male neutered there and he did just fine, and most people I know have went through their humane society with no complaints.

I foster kittens and my mom does dog rescue. We've never had any problems getting either animals fixed through the SPCA near us. They do the surgery a ton of times, so they are pretty good at it.

All of my animals have been altered via the humane society.

we went through a humane society program for a neuter, since I didn't actually get Frankie from them he did not get it there. They offer a reduce cost program. We applied and they sent me a list of approved vets/clinics in my area that were included in this program. He had the actual surgery at a VCA and it was $50. He came out like a champ and no problems. Another Vet quoted me $350

Thank you all so much! My price difference isn't quite that extreme, but I sure wouldn't mind saving $100 or so. All the more to spend on chew toys! ^_^

I worked as a vet tech for a Humane Society in Florida. We did spay/neuters there often and I would always recommend that people go there for the procedure. Our particular vet was extremely thorough and had a HUGE heart. She did multiple free spay/neuters for people that just couldn't afford to have it done. I've known many people that have taken their dogs/cats to humane societies for this procedure and have been happy with the results.

Silly? Yes. But we were the same way. We ended up going through our Vet mostly because we didn't have a thorough health record of Appa before the big event, seems how we got him at 5 months old. We didn't want to take any risks, so we had all the blood work, IV, blah blah blah stuff done.

Yeah, I finally decided to go through a vet here in town, too. My friend recommended him. He does all of the spays/neuters for the county (shelters, etc), so I figure he should be really good at it! It's going to cost a little bit more than the SPCA, but I was worried that shipping her in a crate along with a truck full of dogs and cats to a city two hours away would traumatize her even more.

Silliness strikes again! But she's my first dog, so it's hard not to be nervous when I don't know what to expect.

Btw, Riley, I love Appa's name! He's named after the flying bison, right? I love you

Shipped to another town? I never would have done that. No way.

Definitely named after the air bison. My wife still sorta wants a little dog, if that happens it'll be named Momo. Problem is, we've decided we're a Mal family for life now. We were actually discussing what we would name another Malamute based off of Avatar ... nothing stands out yet.

Whoa. Yeah, I wouldn't want my dog to be shipped off to another town to be spayed either. That's just strange.

Yeah, I tried thinking of some names from Avatar when we first got Sky, too, but I didn't think any of the girls names really fit her. If I'd known how much digging she'd be doing it would definitely have to be Earth Kingdom, though! heehee

Yeah, this town is really strange. It's a pretty good size based on population, and yet it's like living in a small town. You have to go elsewhere for things to do. I guess it's the same with the SPCA. *sigh*

Know exactly how you feel. It sucks living in a farming town, that's also a commuter town to the Frisco Bay area (also a college town, pretty sad). Lots of families and housing, with no shopping or things to do. But hey! we have a target! haha that's pretty much it; have to go to Modesto to do anything. Rolling Eyes

Damn....why didn't I think about looking into the spay programs, I just got Mia spayed at the vet....cost me $300....but at least if there is any complications, I just drive back to them 1/4 mile away from home.

I wish we had a program around here, our Humane society does a sliding scale ticket that you can purchase and then use one of their vets. We don't qualify for anything but a $20 discount lol.

google around your area, sometimes the city will sponsor spay/neuter clinics occasionally and serve the first 50 customers. I thought about doing that and it would have only been $45, but I didn't want to risk being customer 51 and then have Mia get her first heat. I figured, I can afford the spay at a safe place where they will have the staff and Dr's to care for her should there be a complication, may as well get it done.
