Spay/Neuter your pets!

11th Apr 2012

Yet another heavily pregnant cat taken into our care recently! We have been very busy for the last two months running a Trap, Neuter and Return programme for feral cats. We have completed quite a few areas and have moved on to different ones. While this is proving to be very successful, we are amazed to come across so many family pets that have not been spayed or neutered. If you have a female cat over 5 months that is not spayed, she WILL become pregnant, if not already. Taking in pregnant cats or dogs is a huge drain on the LSPCA’s resources, with regard to both time and money. The mating season is well in and if you do not want to be burdened with kittens, which you will probably find very hard to rehome, you should book your cat, male or female, in to be done immediately. The LSPCA offer vouchers to people who are unemployed or, for some reason, cannot afford to neuter or spay their animal. If you fall into this category, contact us and we will try to help. Don’t put your pet through a needless pregnancy and possible difficult delivery, act now!
