I'm up in the Northeast & it cost me about $400 with meds & follow up visits for our spay & neuter. I don't blame you for looking for a better option even if it means a longer drive. I think it's better to be safe then sorry!
Will you visit Oba/Sheba again in the next 3weeks? I think it would make for a good adjustment once she comes home permanently. Baroo can also spend some time getting to know her better she gets home.
She certainly is a real beauty 🙂 I can see why you want her so badly! I'm glad her foster mom was able to hang on to her a little while longer.
