Q: Are there any free spaying services for cats in south jersey?

August 9, 2008 | By NewPetOwner | 2 answers | Expired: 2316 days ago

I am a new cat owner. My son wanted a cat, so I got him one. At this time in my life I really don't need the extra expense, however, I am trying to hold out for the sake of my son. The cat is okay, very affectionate, sometimes a little too affectionate. I was told that there were places that offered free services for getting cats spayed. Oh, I didn't mention the fact that the person that gave me the cat didn't inform me that the cat didn't have any shots, etc., actually, when I called her today she told me that one of the reasons she gave away the cat is because she couldn't afford it. Well, I can't really afford it either, but I don't want to take a gift away from my son. Can someone help me? I am going to register my cat with Petco Insurance so she'll be taken care of when unexpected things happen, that's only $15 a month, but this initial cost for spaying, $100 is not fitting in my budget right now and this cat needs to get this done right away, as she is making all these noises and trying to run out of the house. Again, CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME? THANKS!!!

I am just going to be blunt with you. I dont want to seem like an a-hole but its the truth. If you cant afford to get your cat spayed then you wont be able to afford it if something else happens. Before getting a pet you should think of all of the expenses that come with it. I dont know of any shelters that do it for free but maybe you should save up some money to get it done.

That article links to more info about an event going on this Wednesday in South Jersey. You can get the cat spayed + some shots for $55.

I would also suggest that you check with your local shelters. Many of them offer low cost spay/neuter programs for those who can't afford the normal cost of the procedure.
