Spay & Neuter
Prevent A Litter's spay & neuter program is affordable, accessible, and open to everyone without regard to income or location! As Virginia's first non-profit spay & neuter clinic, we are proud to say we have spayed/neutered more than 76,000 animals preventing millions of unwanted births and decreasing the need for euthanasia across the state. Our fees for spay & neuter are as follows: Cats - strays and ferals welcome! $35 – Female $25 – Male Dogs Female Male Under 40 lbs $45 $35 41 lbs – 99 lbs $60 $50 100 lbs – 125 lbs $95 Rabbits $80 – Female $55 – Male P.A.L. advocates and performs pediatric spays and neuters. We ask that kittens be at least 8 weeks of age and weigh a minimum of two pounds; we ask that dogs be at least 10 to 14 weeks of age depending on breed and size.
Vaccines & Other Services
The cost of veterinary care seems continually on the rise while the household budget for many American families gets smaller and tighter. What was once considered routine vet care (rabies vaccination, heartworm preventative, etc) has, for many, become an unmanageable expense. In an effort to help animals in loving homes stay healthy, Prevent A Litter provides routine yearly vet care at a low cost for animals that are already spayed or neutered. We do not charge an “office visit” or “doctor’s visit” fee so if your cat or dog needs a rabies vaccination it would just cost $15. We offer these services on a walk-in basis (even on Saturdays!) to make caring for an animal affordable and easy for almost every budget and schedule. For a complete list of walk-in services and pricing, please visit our website at www.preventalitter.org.
Surgery (not spay/neuter)
As a fully licensed hospital we are able to offer many other life saving/improving surgeries to animals that would otherwise receive no care. We perform surgeries such as hernia repairs, growth/mass/tumor removals, eye enucleations and many more. We frequently provide this service at no charge and rely on the compassion and generosity of donors to help us continue to help suffering animals.
