$70 is not really bad for a spay and neuter. There are some programs out there to help with the cost of spay and neuters. I would contact your local Humane Society because they should know what programs are available in your area.

When I got my chi's spayed and neutered, I went through an organization called PAWS and it was $65 for the neuter and about $80 for the spay- these are the low cost options. The regular prices vary from $200 and up. One hospital wanted $350 for Lola's neuter.

Usually males are cheaper than females because it is a easier surgery. Our low cost neuters in our area is $90.
There are some organizations if you qualify financially will cover the cost of the spay or neuter for you but they usually will only do one a month or so.

Toby was over $200. Low cost clinics usually have them for under $100. Neutered are almost always less expensive than spays because it is a less difficult procedure.

The prices you've been quoted are very competitive in my opinion.
