For interested Councils

Many Councils are now recognising the benefits of funding desexing subsidies to prevent unwanted cats and dogs

These benefits include:

  • reduced Council costs – it is cheaper to provide desexing subsidies than to have to collect, hold and euthanize or rehome unwanted cats and dogs
  • reduced euthanasia rates
  • greater compliance with laws requiring desexing
  • community support for a more positive approach to animal management

The National Desexing Network currently organises ongoing targeted Cooperative Desexing programs on behalf of a number of Councils including:

  • City of Gold Coast
  • Ipswich City Council
  • Lockyer Valley Regional Council
  • Fraser Coast Regional Council
  • Camden Council

These Councils budget a set amount each year to be used directly for desexing subsidies for residents in need e.g. City of Gold Coast has been participating for the past 8 years to support a requirement in their local laws for all kittens to be desexed prior to sale or transfer.
