Free desexing to curb exploding pet population

ADULT cats and dogs will be desexed for free when owners hand in their litter of kittens or puppies to the Animal Welfare League rehoming centre in West Ipswich.

People can then keep their mother cat or dog, without having to worry about further litters and also with reduced risk of their cat or dog wandering and fighting. As well, it helps their kittens and pups to find homes and prevents any further unwanted litters.

When owners keep their mother cat or dog and have her desexed, the oversupply of adult cats and dogs looking for homes is also reduced, so more animal lives can be saved. The Last Litter Fund vouchers will be issued to take to one of the three participating vet clinics, AWLQ Community Vet Clinic, Raceview or Marburg Vet Clinics.

The kittens can be pregnant themselves from four months old.
