You have to check with your vet because it is up to them and what they are comfortable with, but most shelters and rescues will spay/neuter once they weigh 2 lbs.
Wow! I got Mia at 7 weeks old from the Animal Protective league here in Central Il and I paid a $50 adoption fee. She had her first shots and was spayed at 6 weeks. She has been the perfect cat for me. Very healthy (picky about food though, lol).i don't know where you are. i'm in denver and i paid $220 for diotima and that was like 14 years ago, i think baci was about $150 or so and that was only four years ago. houdini came that way, but it was like $140 to adopt him with the first round of shots.
i don't know how much it is at the low cost clinic but i'm sure it's much less. they should be fine, just no frills but i would imagine they're competent.
call your local ASPCA or dumb friends league.
i know. even though i read all the papers and receipts and such, i've wondered a little about it. the guy who owned "the barkin' boutique" (a dog bakery with a few cat things thrown in there) also was a volunteer for the dumb friends league. it was over here at the pavilions and i went in to buy cat collars. he had brought a lot of the kittens available for adoption and put them in cages around the shop. one of the guys brought houdini over and shoved him in my arms, "LOOK ISN'T HE CUTE!" LOL (i said, "oh i really hate you because now i can't leave the store without him").Wow! I got Mia at 7 weeks old from the Animal Protective league here in Central Il and I paid a $50 adoption fee.
