ADULT cats and dogs will be desexed for free when owners hand in their litter of kittens or puppies to the Animal Welfare League rehoming centre in West Ipswich.

People can then keep their mother cat or dog, without having to worry about further litters.

Last Litter Fund vouchers will be issued to take to one of three participating vet clinics, AWLQ Community Vet Clinic, Raceview or Marburg Vet Clinics.

Kittens can be pregnant themselves from four months old.

Often new owners don't get around to desexing kittens before this first pregnancy.

If these cats wander or are abandoned, more cats continue to breed in the wild, adding to the unowned cat population.

Handing them in to the AWLQ for rehoming will save owners having to worry about contributing to this problem.

By law, all kittens and pups must also be microchipped before being sold or given away, and registered on a microchip database, so wandering animals can be returned to their owners. If people can't afford to microchip their litter of pups or kittens, AWLQ will ensure this is done when they are surrendered to AWLQ before they rehome them.
