Who's the person behind the pet?

Unsuspecting buyers are being led to believe their new puppy or kitten has come from a happy home. The sad truth is, animals are being bred or kept in appalling conditions and sold by deceitful traders. People are spending huge amounts of money on pets that have physical or psychological problems due to mistreatment.

low cost cat neutering and spayingDon't Wait until it's Too Late...

Please Neuter Your Cat (male or female)

Neutering your cat is better for them, and for the wider cat population too! Rescue centres get over-run with kittens in spring and summer - largely because too many owners didn't get their cat spayed, resulting in unplanned, unwanted litters. Please neuter your cat - male or female. If cost is an issue, low cost neutering is available - don’t wait til it’s too late!
