Campbelltown pensioners and low-income earners can now get their cats desexed at a subsidised rate.

Campbelltown Council has brought back the Campbelltown Cooperative Desexing Program, available at the Campbelltown Animal Care Facility.

The program is available to any Campbelltown resident who is a pensioner or earns less than $25,000 a year.

Eligible cat owners can pay $65 to get their first female kitty desexed, and all other female cats cost $50. Male cats cost $55. There is no limit on the number of cats which can be desexed per household.

It is important to get cats desexed from as early as two to three months old, as kittens can become pregnant from as early as four months old.

The program is funded under the Natoinal Desexing Network.

All cats must be microchipped either before or at the time of the desexing. Microchipping costs just $10 for people participating in the program, and can be done at the Animal Care Facility or participating vets.

To enrol in the program, call the National Desexing on 1300 368 992.
