Cats in Fenland will enjoy a brighter future following the launch of a new branch of Cats Protection, specialising in offering financial help towards the cost of neutering.
Lin Lockwood, Cats Protection’s regional development manager for East Anglia, said: “It will be run entirely by volunteers and focussed solely on helping to fund the cost of neutering.
“Neutering is a simple veterinary procedure that offers many benefits to cats and owners alike. Neutered cats are less likely to spray, fight or wander far from home.
“Neutering is also essential in controlling the number of unwanted and abandoned cats. Cats are prolific breeders, with a female capable of producing up to 18 kittens a year.
“Charities such as Cats Protection have thousands of cats in its care waiting to find a new home, and neutering is the only effective way of reducing this number in the long term.”

Lin added that the branch was hoping to attract new volunteers in order to extend its neutering work to also help feral cats.
The Fenland Neutering Branch will cover the postcode areas PE13, PE14, PE15, PE16 and PE26. To find out more about getting help towards the cost of neutering or becoming a volunteer, please contact the branch on 0345 647 2180 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
