Spring breeding season is around the corner and pets, particularly cats, breed at an astounding rate, in the warmer months.

Take advantage of this opportunity in July to desex your owned or part owned cat or dog and help reduce unwanted litters and overpopulation. Check out our Vet Directory to see if there are vets participating in your area.

*Unfortunately, there may be areas without participating vets this July, but if you wish to advocate, you can encourage your Council’s Animal Management Coordinator and Councillor’s to contact the National Desexing Network regarding our year-round Cooperative Desexing Program managed free of charge for Councils.
