Vaccine Prices

(during surgery only)

*In Sangamon County, rabies registration is required and is $17 per year. APL requires that all dogs and cats have a rabies vaccination. If your pet is current on her rabies vaccine, please bring proof of this with you.

Kittens and puppies can be safely spayed or neutered at 8 weeks old. We recommend spaying or neutering before 5 months of age, before pets hit puberty. Spaying or neutering before 5 months of age ensures your pet won’t have an accidental litter, helps prevent mammary cancer in females, and helps prevent some hormone-related behaviors like urine marking and aggression.
