Reduced Rates For Spaying & Neutering

Some veterinarians in the East are trying to fix pet overpopulation by saving you some money.

All month, animal hospitals in Beaufort County have lowered their rates to spay or neuter your pet. It's an annual event, but this year they say the animal shelter is especially full because a new law requires the shelter to hold some pets even longer.

Sandy Woolard is the Animal Control Officer in Beaufort County and says, "We've been having to turn people away lately because our shelter stays full. With the new restrictions if people don't come in and offer proof of ownership we're having to hold those animals and not even put them up for adoption immediately because we have to see if an owner comes to reclaim them."

The reduced rates for spaying and neutering run through the end of February and can save you $30.00 to $40.00.

    I adopted a cat from Beaufort County and had it fixed at Pamlico Animal Hospital. The adoption fee was $35 and told that everything was covered in the adoption fee. When picking up my cat from the vet, I was shocked that they had charged me another $90. They said I had to have all this stuff done before they could fix my cat. WOW i was really mislead to believe the $35 was a great deal on a cat, having it fixed and all. Next time I will find one of those cats around town before being robed again!

    Spay Today is a good service for people who can't afford the service at the vet. The surgeries are done by trained veterinarians. Concerned needs to educate herself a bit more on the organization.

    How much does it cost to spay and neuter some of these people I see up on the news every day?

    Be careful with that "Spay Today" clinic. Its like a corner abortion clinic. Slice & dice comes to mine. You get what you pay for. Just saying

    Better make sure your pets are up to date on shots and what lab work the vets require to have the animal fixed before you take it in. Also does the price only cover surgery, what about all the extras, like sedation, heart monitor, pain meds, keeping them over night. There are a lot of hidden cost that you need to make sure you know about before you drop your pet off.

    Do you have to be a Beaufort County resident to get this deal? I wish a vet in Greenville would do this!
