Need help with cost for spaying a kitten

(We already have two cats we love (Miss Kitty and Bullet).   My husband found a adorable kitten that someone just dumped off out in the country.  She (named her Olive, thought she was an Oliver)was so skinny when we brought her home.  She only weighed 1lb and 14 oz when he brought her home.  Now she is healthy happy and filling out.  Bullet loves her, because she has someone to play with. Bullet is only a little over a year old.  Miss Kitty is 8yrs old.  Anyhow, we are strapped for cash just like everyone else is with the economy in the toilet.  Is there a website for a  Cryfoundation that helps with cost for getting animals spayed.  If someone out there can help give me some ideas, that would be so great.  I heard from a co-worker that some humane society's will help, but I can't find one in our county.  I live in Woodford County in Illinois.  Someone day when money is better, I would most certainly give back to the foundation.

I know the cost of spaying and neutering can be really expensive, but maybe your vet, knowing you want to keep your pet from having babies, will allow you to make payments towards the surgery.  The Humane society will also assist with payment for spaying if you can find one near your area.  Check your phone book and see if you can also locate a number for a place that will perform spaying and neutering less expensively.  We have a company called Heartsong here in Georgia that does that.  Your vet may even let you barter the cost by maybe doing some voluntary work at their facility to pay off the surgery.   You did a really good thing taking in little Olive.  Kudos to you and your family.

Some human societies will do so for under 50- and the money goes towards the care of some other animals in the societies care. that's who you really need to check with.

We recently had two male kittens neutered.  We had turned our noses up at the clinics who did this at special rates and used the same vet from the time he started his business through pets we had or took in from our kids for 30 years.  His usual office calls were $40 each -- $90 for the two kittens, so we were really in shock when we called to make an appointment for them and found it would cost $210 each. They took them in the night before, but it would have been the same if we did not take them in.

Our daughter, a registered nurse, had taken most of the ferals that she had caught as well as her own cats to a "Value" Pet Clinic and was very pleased with the medical efficiency and information that she gained.  She suggested we call.  Their normal charge was something like $40 each and when we took them in, the girl at the desk had a reduced price coupon attached to our file because she sensed we had a money problem.  (We didn't actually have to pay that because when we went in to pick them up our daughter had been in and paid.)

We are not in your area, but I suggest you check your LOCAL PHONE BOOK and call around, asking the charge. The vets in these clinics are there because they truly want the animals to receive good care regardless of the wealth of their owners.  They will refer you to a specialist when needed, just as your pricier vets would. 

We are just as satisfied with the care our two and our new feral get there as with our long-time veterinarian.
