We advise owners to get their dogs (both male and female) neutered from 6 months old. It reduces the number of unwanted litters and can also help your dog live a long and healthy life.
We aim to neuter all our re-homed dogs but if a dog needs to be re-homed without being neutered we will provide a neutering voucher from the Dogs Trust so that the new owner can arrange neutering with a vet who participates in the neutering scheme. You will need to get the vet to provide proof to us that the neutering has been done.
If you claim benefits you can take advantage of the low-cost neutering service in partnership with the Dogs Trust, which is offered at many vets in Cardiff and surrounding area.
There is subsidised neutering at a cost of £50.00 for those on a means tested benefit although this is subject to the following breeds only:
- Staffordshire bull terrier
- German Shepherd
- Jack Russell Terrier
- Malamute and/ or Husky
- American Bulldog
- Cross breeds where the primary breed is identifiable as one listed.
Proof of current benefits would need to be provided at the time of your appointment. This service is not available at Cardiff Dogs Home.
