How this will help

Our new program is working with the elderly and their older pets. So many seniors cannot afford proper medical care for their pets and this is where we have been able to give a big helping hand. Benefits the pet as well as the owner!
You would not believe all the tears of joy for this one simple program...

Typical costs:
*The cost of neutering a dog at a Human Society or at a low-cost clinic can range from $45 to $135, depending on the weight of the dog. The cost of spaying, a more complicated surgery, usually ranges from about $50 to $175.
*Some clinics and animal hospitals can charge up to $200-$300 or more, depending on the weight of the dog.
*The cost of both neutering and spaying vary greatly by geographic region, and even by veterinarian.
*The average cost for dog vaccinations ranges from $20 to $150 in the first year, and from $10 to $100 per year afterward.
*The cost varies based on which vaccinations are given and whether they are done at a veterinarian's office or a low-cost vaccination clinic run by a local government or humane organization.
*A dog teeth cleaning typically costs between $70 and $350, depending on whether pre-anesthetic bloodwork is done as well as the difficulty of the job, including the amount of build-up on the teeth and under the gumline and whether periodontal disease is present.
*A topspot flea and tick control product administered monthly costs between $150 and $200 or more per year, depending on the size of the dog. This type is by far the most popular because it prevents both fleas and ticks -- and sometimes other pests -- and is safe and easy to use. It also kills adult fleas and prevents new larvae from developing.
*Basic dry kibble, on average, costs between $100 and $250 per year for a 30-pound bag every month to two months.
*Premium or "holistic" dry kibble, on average, costs between $200 and $400 per year for a thirty-pound bag every month to two months.
*Canned food or frozen raw food, on average, costs between $400 and $1,000 per year for one to three cases of 13-ounce cans per month or for one to three 10-pound bags of frozen raw food per month .

Typical costs for Cats
*The average cost for cat vaccinations ranges from $45 to $85 and up in the first year, and from $10 to $35 and up per year afterward.
*The cost varies based on which vaccinations are given and whether they are done at a veterinarian's office or a low-cost vaccination clinic run by a local government or humane organization.
*The cost of neutering usually ranges from $50 to $100. The cost of spaying, which is more complicated, usually ranges from $100 to $200.
*The cost of neutering and spaying vary by geographic region and even by veterinarian.
*Basic dry kibble, on average, costs between under $5 and $8 for a four-pound bag each month.
Premium or "holistic" dry kibble, on average, costs between $8 and $16 for a four-pound bag each month.
Canned food or frozen raw food, on average, costs between $16 and $38 for slightly more than two cases of 3-ounce cans of frozen raw food, each month.
