Pros: They spay and neuter pets for a small fee!

Cons: Can be inconvenient depending on where you are located

This review is specifically for the Tree House Spay/Neuter clinic, which is actually located at another site. The Tree House itself though is a really great place also though (have been there to visit the kitties a few times in the past, when I lived in the city).

 

I got my kittens in July. My vet, which is very conveniently located next door to me, charges a LOT for neutering. Multiply that by 2 and it was going to be close to a thousand just for neutering! I asked around, and a friend told me how she took her two kittens the year before to the Tree House Spay Neuter clinic. They charged $95 to neuter males that were pets. In addition, they got their second distemper and rabies vaccines included in that. They also clipped their nails and gave them a little green tattoo. Oh, and they will neuter as long as they are at least 8 weeks old and at least 2 lbs. My boys were 13 weeks and 4.5 lbs each.

 

The ONLY negative I experienced (and is not reflected in the star count because I don't think it should) was that I had to go a bit out of my way. I had to get them there by 8:30am and pick them up at 5pm. I live in the suburbs, so just stayed in the city all day because I didn't want to deal with that traffic x2. As it was, it took me 1.5 hours to get there in the morning and actually got them in at 8:34am. I was so glad they were still taking them!

 

Anyway, the boys were great, they healed great, no complications. I now have two very happy and neutered boys.

Tree House Humane Society - Chicago, IL
Description:

A cageless, no kill humane organization specializing in the rescue and rehabilitation of sick and injured stray cats. Tree House’s primary mission centers around the rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption of sick and injured stray cats. Since our founding in 1971, Tree House has rescued and adopted more than 16,000 stray cats. Our Foster Program, off-site adoption events, and Emergency Fund for sick and injured strays ensure that we are able to admit and find homes for as many friendly strays as possible. Since opening the BDVM Spay/Neuter Clinic in May of 2009, Tree House has sterilized more than 6,000 cats and dogs, and our annual goal is to spay and neuter 5,000 cats and dogs. The Clinic is open five days a week, and performs an average of 20 surgeries per day. Of those surgeries, approximately 65 percent are feral cats, spayed and neutered through our TNR Program for free or at reduced rates. Spaying and neutering of animals is the only way to combat the problem of pet overpopulation and ensure that no animals have to be killed simply for lack of a home. Tree House believes that Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) will provide an increasingly better quality of life for feral and stray cats living outside, and will ultimately eliminate the homeless cat population. http://www.treehouseanimals.org/ 1212 W.
