Do places like the ASPCA and others that offer low/reduced priced spaying neutering (low income people) spay and neuter animals other than dogs and cats? Or is just for dogs and cats? Because it is over $200.00 to get one rat spayed/neutered. I do know that the vet doing the operation needs to have plenty of experience (surgery etc) with small animals.

There are places that spay/neuter small animals at a low cost, you'll want to ask either a small animal rescue near you, or a rabbit rescue near you. They would be the ones to know about such places. I got my rabbit spayed at by the mobile unit that the vet school has, for only $30. They do other pets too. They always have experienced vets training the students and these are not inexperienced students either that are out there. The very picky rabbit rescue trusted them so I knew they'd be great. I know around here some vets do rats fairly inexpensive. I can't find a good one that does guinea pigs as inexpensive though, the procedure is a bit more difficult on them.

Im not really sure, have you tried to call and ask? I would think it would be specific animals because there are so many cats and dogs reproducing these days they would be more concerned about them then other animals. Id check into it. i know eventually ill have to find out because we have a kitten that needs to get done when it gets a little bigger.
