    I am trying to be creative. I need to have my 2 male dogs and 1 female dog fixed, since I am unemployed right now and fighting my Benefits, I thought this might work.
    I am a member of the Purina Club, I can send in weight labels from Dog Food and get points, if I get enough I can get them to send a check, made out to my vet, this would allow me to get this done for my dogs health and my sanity.

    So, if I could get anyone's help I would greatly appreciate it.
    Purina ONE gets the most points per pound, but Dog Chow, Puppy Chow, Little Bites (what I use) any Purina Food that has a weight label.

    I will gladly send you a Stamped Self Addressed Envelope for these.

    I need 35,000 points and it would take forever to get there on my own.

    I truly appreciate any help I can get.


    I have about 3000 right now in my account.

    Please PM me if you can help and I will send an envelope to you.

    Thanks and God Bless!

    UPDATE:
    I Truly thank the ones who have offered to help! If you can help I really really appreciate it. Thank You!

    I don't use Purina but I think that's a great creative solution, and I hope that other BYCers do use Purina and can help you out!!! GOOD LUCK!

    Thanks! I have gotten better at being creative, funny how half the income coming in will make you do that.
    I checked the Low Cost Clinics and I can't even afford those, so this is a viable solution. I talked to my vet and all my dogs need rabies and heartworm tests/prevention plus flea drops, he said if I can get the check done, he will do all for $350 for all my dogs, that includes Spaying the one, neutering the 2 males and rabies , heartworm and flea drops for everyone (I have 7 total)

    This is a big savings and the vet is doing his part to help.

    Have you contacted your animal control or done a search for free spay/neuter clinics in your area. Here in the Richmond, Va area there is a clinic that does very low cost and FREE spay/neuters. The vets donate their time.

    I did contact the Low Cost one here it is $55 for each male dog and $75 for the female, plus rabies shots. This is what they call Low Cost.
    That was the first place I checked. This is why I talked to my vet, he is willing to do everything I need for the one price so I need to try and get enough ponts to get the check for him. I know that $350 is not much for everything he is going to do. The HeartWorm and Flea Drops are for 6 months for all the dogs. Considering 2 of my dogs are over 45lbs, that is a chunk of change.

    Quote:For some reason GA doe snot seem to want to help people out. That is why I think my vet is giving me a way better deal. Hopefully I will either win my UE appeal and/or be able to find work soon.

    Thanks, just PM me if you have some to send and I can mail and SASE to you.

    That is incredibly nice of your vet to do, the heartworm tests alone will cost him around $35 each and if he uses human grade anasthesia that gets pricey too unless he does it all old fashioned style . I don't use purina foods but I will ask my friends if they use it and send some your way if possible.

    Ya, that what the low cost spay and neuter cost are here to. I also seen an ad on craiglist of a place offering low cost microchip for $10. It said the original cost was $15 but they would offer then for $10 if you brought a donation like dog food, bowls, leashes, that sort of thing. I didn't think that was such a deal.

    Anywaz to the OP. My mom uses Purinea so I'll tell her to save her points. She don't use much as all she has is 2 chihuahuas and they don't eat much but every little bit helps.
