Animal Welfare League news


There are figures around that say that if you have a male and female kitten of approximately four months of age and they, and all their offspring, are not de-sexed, that after a period of 2 years you will have a population of 425,000 felines! Whether these figures are correct to the last thousand is neither here nor there. The fact remains that if you do not have your cat de-sexed, there will be numerous unwanted and unloved cats who have a life either in the wild killing our beautiful native animals or in a cage waiting for a home. It is a myth that female cats should have one litter.

It is also untrue that male dogs are emasculated if de-sexed! They will live happier and healthier lives with less chance of cancer and less chance of wandering and being in a fight or accident.

De-sexing month is supported by numerous vets in the region and by Animal Welfare League and the RSPCA. Speak to your vet for more information.
