Desexing can be done by your local vet, the RSPCA (www.rspcansw.org.au) or the Cat Protection Society (www.catprotection.org.au).
Book your puppy in for desexing before they are 6 months old and kittens before they are 4 months old. Desexing can be carried out safely on dogs and cats from the age of 12 weeks, although some vets prefer to wait until the animal is around 5 to 6 months old.
- Residents with a pensioner concession or health care card can get a discount on pet desexing. Please contact council to enquire about this service (phone 9265 9333 email [email protected].
- lf you don’t qualify for a discount and are struggling to meet desexing costs, contact the RSPCA on 02 9770 7555 or the Cat Protection Society on 02 9519 7201.
- Both organisations offer pet desexing, microchipping and initial vaccinations at a discounted rate to owners in genuine need.
- If you are a concession card holder, you can also obtain discounted desexing through the National Desexing Network by calling 1300 368 992.
