I am sure that all of you, if not most of you, have heard about Spay Today, or Shenandoah Valley Spay & Neuter Clinic. These organizations are wonderful assets to have, especially in today’s economy where everything is so expensive.
These programs offer cheaper spaying and neutering for cats and dogs in this area. Spay Today is located in Charles Town, West Virginia. Shenandoah Valley Spay & Neuter Clinic is located in Harrisonburg, Virginia, but has drop off points in Winchester, and Front Royal. However, there is the option to drive your animal to Harrisonburg yourself.
The prices are reasonable. Cats range from $30.00 to $60.00. And dogs range from $40.00 to $100.00.
That isn’t bad, compared to what you would pay at a veterinarian’s office, outright.
However, I would like to know how you feel about having something like this closer to our area. How would you feel if there was something here in Northern Virginia, and perhaps it used our shelter as a drop off point?
Would you use this service?
Would you be willing to pay these prices to have your animals fixed?
Would you be willing to pay maybe a little more expensive fee if this service was being offered in your area?
Are these prices even reasonable to you? Or would you like to see something cheaper?
How would you feel about it?
