Neutering

Neutering in processCats Protection champions neutering as the only effective way to reduce the number of unwanted cats in the UK.

We seek to dispel myths, spread the neutering message and make it easier for owners on low incomes to get their cats neutered. In some cases, especially where owners are in financial hardship, some of our centres and branches may be able to help with neutering costs.

Our recommended start age for neutering within Cats Protection is four months.

In 2013 we neutered 158,000 cats making us the largest single cat neutering group in the world!


Early Neutering

How we support neutering

Neutering is one of Cats Protection’s three primary objectives. Find out more about how we champion neutering though our branches, adoption centres, other charities and many other ways.

Financial assistance

Cats Protection helps hundreds of thousands of cat owners with the cost of neutering every year through regional and national schemes. Find out how we can help you and your cat.

Current regional and national neutering campaigns

We have some special FREE, £5 and £10 neutering offers in many regions across the UK. Don’t worry if you are not in any of these areas – we also offer support with part of the cost of neutering nationwide.

Working with other organisations

We work closely with other charities, local councils and social housing providers to help fulfil out neutering objectives. We also organise welfare seminars.
