Cut price dog neutering scheme for Croydon residents – Just 50 vouchers available

Croydon Council’s Dog Warden Service works in partnership with Dogs Trust to promote responsible dog ownership.

Following on from the success of the project at Christmas, their latest project is a ‘£35 Neutering’ initiative which runs throughout the whole of 2017. There are 50 low-cost neutering vouchers for selected breeds, allowing owners who are on benefits or a low income and living in a Croydon postcode to get their dog neutered for just £35 at any one of a number of participating vets. The procedure normally costs between £200- £500, depending on the size of the dog, so this is a huge saving.

There is a UK-wide overpopulation of unwanted dogs. Although this is due to a large number of unscrupulous backyard breeders, there are also many owners who would like to have their dog neutered but simply cannot afford it.  Not having dogs neutered can lead to issues such as accidental litters, continuous straying, dog thefts and unneutered dogs being sold to new owners, antisocial behaviour involving dogs.screen-shot-2017-03-01-at-13-12-35

Dogs Trust – Neuter your dog for Christmas – reduced price voucher for bull breeds throughout December 2016

screen-shot-2016-11-21-at-18-22-55

Croydon Council’s Dog Warden Service works in partnership with Dogs Trust to promote responsible dog ownership.

Their latest festive project is the ‘Neuter your Bull Breed for Christmas’ initiative. There will be 500 low-cost neutering vouchers available as part of the initiative, allowing owners of bull breeds living in a Croydon postcode to get their dog neutered for just £35 at any one of the participating vets. This procedure normally costs between £200- £500, depending on the size of the dog, so this is a huge saving!

Dog Warden, Tara Boswell says,

There is a UK-wide overpopulation of bull breeds and around 75% of the strays I collect in our borough are bull breed type dogs.  Although this is mainly due to a large number of unscrupulous backyard breeders, there are also many owners who would like to have their dog neutered but simply cannot afford it. Not neutering your dog can lead to accidental litters, continuous straying, dog thefts ans unneutered dogs being sold to new owners, antisocial behaviour involving dogs and dangerous dogs.

I hope this initiative will help curb these problems.

Owners will have until January 31, 2017  to redeem their voucher.

I will also be monitoring our stray puppy intake over the Christmas and New Year period to see if this has any effect on our stray numbers.
