Cats Protection is running a chip and snip campaign in the Western and Northern Isles. Under the campaign you can get your pet cat neutered and microchipped for just £5.

Cats Protection recommends that cats are spayed or snipped at around four months of age or younger. Once neutered, cats live longer, healthier lives and it is the most humane way to stop unwanted pregnancies

Spaying or snipping also prevents some cancers, helps stop the spread of FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), reduces straying, fighting and spraying. Microchipping offers cats a safe method of identification so if they go missing they are more likely to be reunited with you.

The guidelines for eligibility for neutering assistance apply to one or more of the following; receipt of certain means-tested benefits, low household income, full-time students living away from home, state-only pension and pension credit. Proof of eligibility will be required by the vet in order to participate in the scheme.

The scheme is available directly via the participating vets - contact details can be found on the map below. You can enlarge the map and search using your postcode by clicking in the top right corner, or zoom in and out and click on the pins for the contact details of your nearest vets.

A maximum voucher restriction applies to this campaign.

Alternatively, if you are having difficulties using the map to find your nearest vet, or wish to discuss the criteria for eligibility, please contact the Neutering team directly on 03000 12 12 12 (option 2) Monday to Friday, 9.30am–1pm.
