World Spay Day 2016

Today is World Spay Day, a day that shines a spotlight on the importance of getting your pet neutered. We think that neutering is the only effective way to reduce the number of unwanted cats in the UK.

World Spay Day 2016

In 2014 we helped neuter 163,000 cats, including 28,000 feral cats, making us the largest single feline neutering group in the world.

Neutering is a surgical operation which stops female cats from becoming pregnant and male cats from making females pregnant. Our recommended age for neutering your pet cat is four months.

Find out more about the benefits of neutering your cat by reading and sharing our visual guide below and reading our blog post: Why should I neuter my cat?

  1. It is so very important to get the message across that Spaying and neutering is essential. Many people believe that it is cruel or unkind but they do not realise that the majority of feral kittens born on the streets die from starvation, abuse, neglect and live a miserable short life. Nobody wants to see these poor little animals suffer so it is best to prevent them from being born and spaying/neutering helps with that.
