Our Branch is committed to reducing the number of unwanted kittens, puppies and other animals born every day into our area. To assist with this we offer a subsidised neutering scheme for people on means-tested benefits.
If you would like your pet to be neutered but are struggling to meet the costs then please ring the animal centre on 01422 365628 for more information.
Benefits of neutering:
- Neutering has many benefits that apply not only to dogs and cats but also to other small animals such as rabbits.
- Neutering prevents female animals coming into season, when they may attract unwanted male attention, become pregnant or have false pregnancies.
- Neutering prevents the risk of testicular cancer in male animals and uterus infections and cancers in females.
- In male dogs and cats, neutering can reduce behaviours such as urine marking and roaming. In male cats it also helps to reduce the spread of infectious diseases such as Feline Leukaemia and Aids.
