You can help reduce the number of abandoned and homeless litters of kittens and puppies where you live:
- Get your cats and dogs desexed, and the local unowned stray cats if possible too, with reduced prices and other special offers during September 2020. Some vets offer discounts for everyone during National Desexing Month (NDM); others for pension/concession card holders only.
The list of participating vet clinics and their special offers will be available from 17 August 2020, so you can make a vet appointment early to ensure you don’t miss out. Vouchers are not needed; you just need to request NDM prices as listed on the National Desexing (NDN) website. Keep checking for any additions to the list until the end of the first week in September, as some vet clinics register late.
- Encourage your local veterinarians to participate by registering on the NDN website. Posters and Vet Participation Forms will be available on-line by mid-June. Hard copies for display will be mailed to every vet, council and animal organisation in Australia to encourage desexing of cats and dogs, and should be received around mid-July.
- Encourage your Council’s Animal Management Coordinator and Councillors to email the NDN on email@example.com about our year-round Cooperative Desexing Program managed free of charge for Councils. More details are here.
