Financial assistance

Financial AssistanceCats Protection helped 170,000 owners with the cost of neutering cats in 2012.

Neutering is a safe, painless way of controlling the cat population. It also helps reduce your household costs as caring for a mother and kittens is very expensive. Although some owners try and recoup this cost by selling kittens, there are already thousands and thousands of unwanted cats and kittens out there, we don’t need more! Many owners also find that kittens are harder to sell than they first thought.

As the UK’s leading feline welfare charity, we are involved in numerous neutering programmes, working with partner charities, local authorities and individuals to spread the word.

If you need to neuter your cat and cannot afford the cost, we may be able to help towards the cost through our means tested neutering scheme, if you are eligible. Below you will find links to a number of larger regional schemes – which you can access directly by approaching the listed vets. In other parts of the UK the assistance is provided through local branches and centres, or through our national neutering team.

Neutering applications are now processed through the telephone helpline. The opening hours are Monday - Friday, 9.30am - 1pm.

Please call our neutering helpline number - 03000 12 12 12.


Requests for financial assistance are very high so please bear with us during busy periods.
 
Other Cats Protection departments are not able to help with neutering vouchers, so please ensure that you contact the Neutering helpline for all financial assistance requests.
