Less Expensive Option for Neutering Dog?
The vet hospital where we take our rescue dog gave us a price for getting him neutered, but it is really expensive. My family is on a tight budget. We know we can afford to have this dog and we know that it takes money, but I can't help but wonder are there any other less expensive options out there? If you know of any please let me know! Thanks so much Moms.

N., contact the Humane Society. They're in the phone book or online.

If he is a rescue where did you get him from? I believe the Humane Society of Broward County will do it for a whole lot less money than a regular vet office. Call them and ask. It is very important to get him neutered, he won't be in heat and run off, for his health (no prostate cancer later) as well as comfort and not having him hump peoples legs!

if you call the Humane Society they can recommend one to you. In broward there is a mobile pet mobile that spays, neuters, and gives shots. for less than $50 (well as of a couple years ago it was that cheap). But your local Humane Society will tell you were to go since they are all about spaying and neutering to control the pet population
