NJ Aid for Animals goes to Camden City, NJ weekly to pickup dogs and cats from owners who have no transportation or funds to get their animals altered. This little dog when we picked her up to be spayed also had a hernia. Of course, we cannot return this dog with this kind of medical problem. Each spay/neuter costs $25.00 and we also pay for the shots which totals $42.00. We also try to Frontline the animals as they usually have fleas but because our funds are limited, we provide the most basic medical needs first. This hernia cost extra because of the surgery required.
Best news is that this little dog is happy and healthy with its owner.
