Did you know that the average cost of spay surgery, unless subsidized by a public agency, is about $400?! 🤯

A spay surgery can range anywhere from $50-$500, with costs at the low end of this spectrum being subsidized through public agencies. Neutering male dogs is cheaper, ranging anywhere from $35-$250.

The high end of these costs accounts for dog owners who bring their pups to a veterinarian for this surgery. For strays, costs tend to be much higher because the process includes capturing the dog and transporting him or her to a shelter or clinic.

Every year in the U.S., humane organizations and animal control agencies spend over $1 billion on capturing and surgically fixing strays and abandoned dogs. This practice and cost are not realistic for most other countries.

The only realistic and effective way to solve this issue is to develop our Spay and Neuter Cookie. Once it's developed, we will be able to nonsurgically fix strays, keeping them from reproducing more strays who will live lives of suffering and misery.

If you are passionate about animals and ensuring that all animals live safe and happy lives, please become a supporter.
