Patricia Barton: Neutering programme

Wednesday September 09, 2020 Published in Letters to the Editor

The SPCA does not provide a free neutering programme.

Spaying and neutering are done by Te Are Manu by appointment Monday to Friday on a donation basis to cover the cost of the operation and the medical supplies that are used. 

At present, due to the fact that the country has only one veterinarian, there is a waiting list of 80 animals who need desexing on Te Are Manu’s books.

The Vet Clinic is flat out at the moment, each day the clinic schedules four animals for desexing, this is on top of general medical consults, emergency trauma surgeries and updating medical records.
