Cat Neutering Scheme

The charity Cats Protection are running a scheme in the East Midlands to help owners get their cats neutered. Participating veterinary practices such as ours will neuter your cat (spey or castrate) for £10, with Cats Protection contributing towards the cost of the operation.
 
To be eligible, owners will need to be in receipt of a means tested benefit:
  • Income support
  • Housing benefit
  • Council tax benefit
  • Pension credit
  • State pension
  • Income based ESA
  • Income based JSA
  • Universal credit
OR earning an annual income of less than £18,000.
 
Proof of address is required and proof of eligibility such as a benefits agency letter, wage slip, proof of full-time student status or a bank statement. 

Stray cats can also be neutered under the campaign as long as an exhaustive search for owners has taken place. This is not means tested.
 
If you would like to take advantage of this scheme, please phone the surgery to book your cat in for the operation. We have vouchers here for you to fill in. Male cats can be castrated from 4 months of age, females can be speyed from 5 months.
 
 
 
 
Owners not eligible under this campaign may still be able to get help with neutering their cat, please phone the Cats Protection national helpline on 03000 12 12 12 (option 2), Mon-Fri 9.30am-1pm.
