Moira Shire Council, the National Desexing Network and local veterinary clinics have joined forces to offer residents in need a subsidised desexing program to help prevent unwanted cats.
Moira Shire residents on pensions or low income, or with too many cats to afford to desex, will pay just $55 to desex their male cats and $65 for the first female cat. Any additional female cats in the same household will cost only $50.
In addition, if cats are not already microchipped at the time of desexing, residents will pay just $5 to have their cat microchipped and free Council registration will be provided for the first registration period.
The program is managed by the National Desexing Network. Residents who need support can phone the National Desexing Network on 1300 368 992 to find out if they are eligible. If eligible, they will be issued a desexing voucher and can then contact the vet to make an appointment.
These subsidies are available while Council funds last.
