Hello everyone...recently I decided to spay my two dogs and made a little research on where can I do that. One of the most common places I read about almost everywhere is the humaine society. The financial part about them is great and they have a location close by. I was just wondering, though, if anybody had any issues with them or heard something bad about them in terms of quality of the surgical operations. Just wanna make sure I'll take a good care of the health of my little buddies, dont want to risk their health just to save a few bucks. Also any other recommendations for low-budget places to do that would more than welcome. Thanks, in advance, for your time and opinions.

Welcome, krystnika!  Great that you've decided to get your 2 pups spayed.  Low cost spay/neuter clinics, including humane societies can vary quite a bit in quality.  Also the health & age of a pet can affect outcomes - older dogs or those with health problems might be best spayed/neutered in a full service vet clinic.

If you post the general region where you live, maybe someone here that lives near you can give you more info on your specific humane society or other low cost clinics.  You might also check with some of the better pet rescue groups in your area - they can give recommendations on good low cost spay/neuter options.

Hey, thanks for the answer. I' m residing in Madison, WI. But I think that the Madison branch of HS doesn't really do those type of surgeries, it's mainly a shelter, I've been told. If anybody knows it's otherwise please let me know. For the time being I would have to look for other options. Does anybody know anything about the "Spay me" clinic in the region or anywhere generally.
   My dogs are almost 4 and 6 years old and both are males. One is Yorkie and the other one mix between Yorkie and Shitsu. Only the elder one had any major medical issues and it was about 3 years ago. He had to go through a hip surgery and one more incident(may be related to the first one) within a few months. But he's had no other issues since then. So given that do you think it's ok to look for some low-cost clinic or it might be safer to go for full time vet clinic?
Thanks again in advance!!!

Krystnika, Dane County Humane Society does have a subsidized spay and neuter program, done at the shelter. More information here:

https://www.giveshelter.org/spay-and-neuter-assistance-2.html

I'm sure if you call the numbers listed, they will be able to give you more info.  Feel free to send me a PM also if you would like any more info about vet services in Madison.

FWIW, neutering males is a lot less complex than spaying females, and I think they would do a fine job with this if you have trouble affording the more full-service vet clinics. A vet clinic would likely do more pre-op workup, but you would pay more, too.

One of my cats (male) is a rescue who was neutered by DCHS and adopted through them. I had no concerns at all.

Kristnika,
Check the listings at the Help for Pets in Need on this forum.  Look for your state to find if their are any resources in your area.  Also scroll down and look a some of the other thread for information that might be helpful to you.  There are lots of listings for spray and neuter help in every state.
