Can You Help?
In 1996/97 we introduced a Subsidised Neutering Scheme for cats and dogs, both male and female.
Since it’s inception, the Scheme has been a huge success, growing from year to year.

From 1998 to 2012 the total number of pets neutered was 4,052
We strongly urge pet owners to avail of this scheme, as it is getting harder and harder to find good homes for unplanned and unwanted litters of pups and kittens. Once a dog or cat has reached six months of age it can be neutered.
Please note that female dogs and cats should not be neutered while they are in heat, it is best to wait a week or two after their heat is ended
The vets in Roscrea neuter the animals for the Roscrea SPCA Subsidised Neutering Scheme.
Their rates are as follows:
|Female Dog:||Owner pays €70||Roscrea SPCA pays €20||Total €90|
|Male Dog:||Owner pays €50||Roscrea SPCA pays €15||Total €65|
|Female Cat:||Owner pays €50||Roscrea SPCA pays €15||Total €65|
|Male Cat:||Owner pays €25||Roscrea SPCA pays €10||Total €35|
Feral Cats (Wild)
Feral cats are a problem at the present time. If animals are not neutered this problem can quickly escalate. They become disease ridden through inbreeding and pose a threat to the health of domestic cats. If you are feeding feral (wild) cats, contact us about our
TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) Scheme for Feral Cats.
