Save up to $50 on cat desexing

We are offering a discounted desexing fee for each cat for the first 100 owners who complete the online form. There is a limit of two vouchers per owner.

In NSW cats must be microchipped by 12 weeks of age or before being sold or given away, whichever happens first. Fines apply for cats not microchipped of up to $180 or a court may award a penalty of up to $880. 

Cats must also be registered by four months of age. The registration fee is a once-only payment, which covers the cat for its lifetime in NSW, regardless of any changes in ownership. You are encouraged to have your cat desexed before registering it. Having your cat desexed helps reduce straying, fighting and aggression and antisocial behaviour, such as spraying to mark territory. It also helps to reduce the number of unwanted pets born each year.

Please note your voucher can only be redeemed to desex your cat for $50. The voucher is valid until 31 December 2023.
