Cats - Spay and Neuter Campaign Fundraiser

22 Feb world spay day.png

This fundraiser is all about Cats.

It is part of a year long campaign to raise awareness of the benefits neutering has for cats - and for wildlife.

The Animal Welfare organisations included in this fundraiser represent all four Nations of the UK. They all spay and neuter cats before re-homing, or for feral cats - before release. Each organisation actively promotes spay and neuter initiatives in their area which make the process more affordable for the public.

Important Facts:

  • There are 10.8m owned cats in the UK (2021) – an increase of 600,000 from 2020

  • Just over one in four UK households (26%) owns a cat, compared to 23% in 2020

  • Cats are prolific breeders – one unneutered female cat can produce 18 kittens a year

  • Cats Protection recommends that cats should be neutered from four months of age, but while 9.3 million cats are neutered, 1.3 million remain unneutered

 

Now some sad news :-( 

  • The most recent figures of how many creatures are killed by cats are from the Mammal Society. They estimate that cats in the UK catch up to 100 million prey items over spring and summer, of which 27 million are birds.

  • By supporting this fundraiser you will be supporting animal rescue organizations who neuter feral cat populations, who neuter before rehoming and who offer an ethical alternative for cat adoption than going to a breeder.
