Neutering and Veterinary Fees

In 2003 CRRC introduced a veterinary facility on site to reduce the ever increasing fees as they had been increasing by 46% per year. We have been able to perform more procedures on the animals, mainly spaying and neutering. This on site veterinary facility, in 2010, cost the charity £28,130.46.

  • Need

    Need

    2,000 cats are destroyed a day in the UK as there aren't enough homes for them all. There are also 36,000 unwanted rabbits in uk rescue centres. Why should the living animals suffer because humans allow them to breed out of control?

    Solution

    We need to stop the breeding of animals whilst homes are in short supply and the answer is simple - neuter!

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Help people with the cost of neutering their cat or rabbit

    Activities

    » Issue 800 low cost neuter vouchers per year

    Success will be issuing 800 low cost neuter vouchers per year


  • Impact

    Impact

    This project will prevent unwanted breeding and allow the already living unwanted animals to find a 'forever' home rather than being pushed aside in favour of cute kittens or bunnies.

    Risk

    There is a risk that advertising this scheme too much could potentially drain our allocated funds but we would overcome this by restricting it to initially spaying the females only.

    Reporting

    Funders of this project will receive a quarterly email detailing how the scheme has been taken up by the public and costs incurred.
