The UK’s leading feline welfare charity is helping cat owners to neuter their cats to prevent unwanted cats and kittens.
If you live in the ST16 and ST17 postcode areas, Cats Protection’s Stafford and District Branch are offering a low cost neutering scheme from Monday 24 February to avoid cats being abandoned in the future and hopefully help to lessen the strain on the resources of charities.
Simon Awbery, who works for the charity, says “A neutered cat is less likely to spray, less likely to roam and also less likely to fight. Neutering also helps guard against disease as fighting cats are more at risk of life-threatening diseases that can be transmitted through biting and saliva.”
If you receive benefits, are a students or have a pension you will be able to get a neutering voucher which will mean you only need to contribute £5 towards the cost of neutering each cat and Stafford and District Branch will fund the rest.
To apply for your voucher, visit one the following Veterinary Practices on the dates and times stated below and take proof of eligibility e.g. a benefit letter or student card etc. Once you have your voucher you can make the appointment to neuter your cat and pay the £5.
