They don't answer the phone and seem to drop strays in my neighborhood.

Terrible business practices. We paid them to have work completed, and they had to come back 3 times to fix things they missed. It took nearly a month to accomplish this after many unreturned calls and rescheduled appointments. We noticed more issues a couple of weeks later and paid them to complete additional work. Two weeks later the work is still unfinished after many unreturned calls and more missed appointments. After paying them twice and more than two months of work, we still have animals in our attic.

Good price but never showed up to do the work. Rescheduled for the following day but failed to show again. A week went by and they never contacted us. We made 4 attempts to contact them over nearly 2 weeks and no one ever answered and no one ever returned our calls. BBB had also given this company a "F" rating. Should have checked there first.
Tips & Advices
Most city and county shelters offer affordable spay/neuter services. SPCA and Humane Society shelters also are known for their low-cost spay/neuter programs.
Shelters typically offer spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchipping and some essential medical treatment (deworming, mange treatment) to animals being adopted from the shelter. For other veterinary services, you will need to find a vet.
No-kill and low-kill shelters will state it in their online profile and other official materials. They will usually explain what their process/policy is for looking after the animals in their care. These are also known as “limited admission” shelters because they are usually at full capacity most or all of the time. Also, they often work with rescue organizations or county Animal Services authorities to accommodate animals living in inhumane conditions, abandoned or injured animals.
Anyone can bring a lost animal to a county or municipal shelter. However, private shelters affiliated with rescues often will not accept animals, whether lost or surrendered by owners. Shelters with low-kill policies often have a limited admission capability.
Adopting an adult dog from a county or city shelter usually costs $75-$100. Young adult purebreds and puppies often have a higher adoption fee.  The fee to adopt a cat is usually about $50– sometimes with discounts if one new owner adopts two cats. The adoption fee usually covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery and essential vaccinations.
