Due to the popularity of our neutering financial assistance scheme and the volume of requests received, we've temporarily paused the allocation and distribution of neutering vouchers which means that not all vet practices are able to support at this time.

Get advice about neutering

Protect your cat – it’s kinder to neuter. Are you looking for cat neutering near you? We supported eligible cat owners with financial assistance to neuter over 120,000 pet cats in 2022.

If you’re looking for help with the cost of neutering your cat, you might be able to use our reduced cost neutering scheme.

The average cost in the UK for neutering is around £50-£100 plus £20-£30 for a microchip. With our neutering scheme you could get your cat neutered and microchipped for £10.

Am I eligible for help with the cost of neutering?

If you meet any of the following criteria you can get your cat neutered and microchipped at one of our participating vets for £10:

  • receipt of any of the following means-tested benefits: universal credit, income support, housing benefit, council tax benefit, pension credit, income-based ESA, income-based JSA, working tax credits and child tax credits
  • have a household annual income of less than £25,000 before tax
  • are a full-time student living away from home

How to book a neutering appointment

Please contact a participating vet directly to book an appointment and it is important that you let them know you can use the Cats Protection £10 neutering scheme (because you meet one or more of the above criteria). You can find a participating vet by using our map below.

From 10 June 2024 you’ll be legally required to microchip your cat if you live in England, or you could face a fine of up to £500.
