New Spay/Neuter Program Offers Procedures at Deep Discount

MIAMI VALLEY-- Pet Owners- here's a break for your wallet; spay and neuter services are being offered at deep discount for those with financial needs.

Overpopulation is a problem at the Humane Society of Greater Dayton, and for some pet owners spaying and neutering is too expensive. 
The humane society created the program in conjunction with the Miami Valley Veterinary Medicine Association.

"It's hard to afford anything these days," said pet owner Colleen Staver as she picked up her cat Inky from "Pets in Stitches" clinic. "Everything is so expensive, and if you go to a regular vet they want to charge you up to 250 dollars."

Pets in Stitches is one of five clinics to offer the discounts.

"There are some people who need even more assistance," said Pets in Stitches Veterinarian Dr. Danielle Rastetter. She co-owns the clinic, and says she wanted to be a part of the discount program because spaying and neutering has more benefits than just curbing population problems.

"It's amazing what people will tell us once their pet is spayed or neutered. They're more affectionate. They're more willing to stay at home not willing to roam as much," Rastetter said.

"Once we've seen their animal, examined their animal, spayed or neutered, now we have a point of contact," said Dr. Valerie White with the Miami Valley Veterinary Medicine Association, "Someone to call when there is a medical problem, just to educate too about what is needed to keep a pet healthy every day."

Any pet owner who already gets financial help is eligible for the discounted procedures.

Just bring proof to the Humane Society of Greater Dayton and they will set you up with a voucher and schedule a clinic appointment.

Cost for these surgeries are:
 * Neutered Cat (male): $55
 * Spayed Cat (female): $75
 * Neutered Dog (all size males): $75
 * Spayed Dog (UNDER 50 lbs.): $90
 * Spayed Dog (50 lbs.): $115
The following local offices are participating:
 * Animal Medical Center of Miamisburg
 * Shiloh Animal Hospital
 * North Main-Clayton Animal Hospital
 * Pets in Stitches
 * Paws Inn

Veterinarians who are on the list will not be reimbursed for the discounts they give out.

Dr. Rastetter says she just wants more pets like her latest patient Inky the cat, to live healthy lives.

"I would hate for money to be a reason they can't make their pet a better pet, make their pet a healthier pet, and make their pet more part of the family," Rastetter said.
