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 2014 we helped neuter 163,000 cats, including 28,000 ferals, making us the largest single cat neutering group in the world!
