First Things First – Neuter & Spay !

Lady Cricket

The subject of Neuter &  Spay comes even before Adopting a new dog!   Because you absolutely must do it – so you have to plan for it.   Some places it can be as low as $40  but in my area, $100 for boys and $125 for girls is more common.

Many Shelters will charge “to adopt” a dog – but will reimburse you a lot of the amount once you Neuter/Spay and show them the documentation.

There are lots of resources that help keep the cost lower; Do a Local Search on line and see what you can find.   Here is a good start:   Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Programs | ASPCA.

DON’T WANT TO HAVE TO NEUTER OR SPAY?  OK!  ADOPT A SHELTER DOG WHO ALREADY IS!  THERE ARE THOUSANDS!  MY dear little Cricket, pictured, came from a High-Kill West Virginia County Shelter/Pound.  “High-Kill” means that they have a high rate of killing dogs, usually because they don’t have space for very many. The Shelter Cricket was in can house 16 dogs at a time… whenever there are 17 dogs, someone is going to be killed, unless someone is adopted to open-up a space.   I got up at O’Dark Thirty to take her to be spayed, shortly after adopting her.  I dropped-her off with the Vet but later got a call… she was already Spayed ! YAY !! I had checked well for a scar on her belly and saw nothing. The Vet said he did not see it either, until he shaved her.  What a clever girl! (would have been even more clever to TELL MOMMY ! )  All’s well that ends well!
