2017 Autoclave

Where does the money go?

2017 was a year of huge change when we decided to become our own surgery unit.
​We couldn’t have done it without a tremendous amount of help from a lot of people and organizations.

The average cost to subsidize a single weekend clinic serving 70 animals is $1500. This does not include the client payment.

Included in the total cost are any vaccinations which are approximately $3-5 per animal and are administrated at the time of the surgery to keep total expenses to Pet Fixers and our clients at a minimum.

Operating expenses of phone bills, insurance, paper, ink, food for crews during clinics, and storage fees are NOT factored into the surgery costs. The only minimally paid positions are our veterinarian and two veterinary technicians.
