As one of our key aims, we promote neutering as a safe and painless way to control the cat population. It is also an effective way to reduce your household costs - caring for a mother and kittens is becoming increasingly expensive. There are thousands of unwanted cats and kittens in the UK and neutering is the only effective way to reduce this growing number.
The cost of the operation varies depending on the vet practice that you use. However, the average cost to get a male cat neutered is around £40-£80 and the average cost for neutering a female cat is around £50-£100.
As the UK’s leading feline welfare charity, we are involved in numerous programmes and work with partner charities such as PDSA and Dogs Trust as well as local authorities to promote the benefits of neutering.
If you need financial assistance for neutering your cat, Cats Protection may be able to help through our means-tested neutering scheme. Find out about our current regional and national campaigns below to see if you are eligible, or contact our national neutering team.
Requests for financial assistance are very high so please bear with us during busy periods. Other departments are not able to help with neutering vouchers, so please ensure you contact our neutering helpline for all financial assistance requests.
We offer support with the cost of neutering nationwide. Find out more about the free, £5 or £10 neutering offers in your region.See regional campaigns
