Neutering ‘blitz’ to end suffering

Cat charity Feline Welfare Isle of Wight is encouraging Islanders to ensure their cats don’t add to a growing problem in a cat neutering ‘blitz’ which runs to the end of the year.

They have entered into a scheme with Pet Doctors to offer families on a low income, not just those on benefits, the opportunity to get their cat spayed or neutered for just £30.

They say that on average 1,000 cats and kittens are taken into care on the Island each year, and with all rescue centres full most of the time it is vital to take action now to stop even more animals suffering in the future. A female cat can get pregnant again while still nursing a litter of kittens.

If you have a cat or kitten of four months old or over and need help with the costs of getting your pet spayed or neutered then give them a call on (01983) 521778 or e-mail They also offer microchipping at a very reasonable rate if undertaken at the same time.
