We aquried Peppers when he was 3-4 weeks old. He definitly was a waif. He was underweight and buggy. We almost lost him. I was working on a project and some young boys brought this sad looking kitten to me and asked me to take him home. Fast forward 5 months and the time has come for him to be neutored. He is now a loving healthy kitty that my son has nicknamed snuggle kitty.
I could take him to the vet but I wanted a less expensive solution. I found an organization called Snip Idaho. For $62 my Peppers will be neutured and chipped. It was at least $100 more at the vet. If I was broke I could apply for financial aide. I used the money I saved to take my other to pets to get their vaccinations outside the vaccination clinic.
There were other places such as the Idaho Humane Society but I didn't think I qualified. I felt justified because I took him in as a waif.
If you need to get your animal neutured you can consider these options.
