    Default Cant afford to get my rabbit spayed!

    Before I'm pounced on for getting an animal I cant afford to get done, it was either that or her owner was going to let her 'free' or stop feeding her. My Sister rescued her but couldn't keep her. So age 6 weeks she came to us. Shes vaccinated, vet checked, insured and fed well. But I just cant get together the 80quid to get her spayed. I cant get help from RSPCA as I work. I'm putting a little aside each month but seem to be getting nowhere as things keep breaking and need replacing. Is here anywhere that can help? Pdsa dont help kn my area x

    Don't beat yourself up! You've saved a bunnies life & in the meantime she is cared for & protected. I hope you can find an organisation to help with spaying costs but if it takes months to save up its not a big deal

    I agree. Also, some vets will allow payment by instalments.

    Don't fret, you've done an amazing thing by actually saving her, as others said ask about vet payment plans, or do what I've done this year to save for Christmas. Buy one of those pots you have to break to get into and save up, it'll work out one way or another

    dear moi,-amazing,wonderful-thing you have done for this bunz.--I am a rehabber and I know what your up against-$$$,-a part of being human is to allow animals to be free,it is what we want for ourselves..--the bunz comes to you like a Christmas present,you are very fortunate,-not all wildlife are so lucky.--no one is going to condemn you,..-getting spayed is the least of your worries-or hers,-if she is 6 weeks old,you have plenty of time,-are you sure about her age,??-bunz are generally weaned about 8 weeks,and do you have records form the dvm who vaccinated her??-god bless you and merry xmas,--sincerely james waller from the other kent-usa

    thank you everyone. Yeah she was born June 5th and was only 6 weeks when we got her. Shes nearly 5 months and was hoping to get her done soon but I shall have to wait a while longer. Shes a funny little thing. I was waiting to bond her with Benji but she jumped over the separation one night and they got on!

    Can the blue cross help. I know one year they had some sort of neutering scheme included rabbits and they gave out vouchers to take certain amount off costs

    I think you have to be on certain benefits, but certainly worth trying.

    As has been said, many vets offer payment plans.

    Check some of the local charities, often they do reduced price spaying.

    Friends of the animals are one but I don’t know if they have a branch near you
    IF YOU NEED HELP WITH ANYTHING PLEASE SEND ME A PM OR ANY OF THE OTHER FORUM BUDDIES
