One of Cats Protection’s key aims is neutering. It is the only effective way to reduce the number of unwanted cats in the UK. We also strongly believe that having a companion animal neutered is a responsible part of pet ownership.

To find out more about the benefits of neutering, plus some myths and facts about it, you can download our leaflet, Feline Family Planning.

If you need financial assistance for neutering your pet cat or a stray cat, the branch can offer help towards the cost.

If you receive a state benefit, are on a low household income or are a full time student or pensioner, you should be eligible for this scheme and be able to get your pet or stray cat neutered for just £5.

The campaign also doesn’t cover feral cats. If you have a feral cat, please call the Cats Protection Neutering Helpline directly on 03000 12 12 12 and select option 2, and the adviser will be able to tell you what help we can offer.
