The clinic I take my dogs to does spay/neuter for $125. They also have mobile free spay and neuter vans. When I took my mom`s dog in to get spayed they only charged me $80 for a 56 lb lab/pit mix (I didn`t go with the generic plan either, I got her the good meds).
Cool! Where I live, Alameda County, the local SPCA offers residents free spay and neutering for pitblls and pitbull mixes. That's where I took my boy to get him nuetered. They just charged a $50 deposit when we made the appointment and then we just used the deposit to put towards the medication. But the operation itself was free.
