Why are we here?

Many thousands of cats and kittens lose their lives in Australian animal shelters every year. Cats start breeding by 4 months of age and can have three litters a year with 3-5 kittens. If left un-desexed, one female cat and her offspring, can produce 2,000 kittens in 4 years. The main reason people don’t desex their cats is because they can’t afford it.

Our Vision

To eliminate unnecessary euthanasia by reducing the number of unwanted cats and kittens entering shelters and pounds.

Did You Know?

In the Western Metropolitan region of Melbourne there are:

  • 1.2 million residents
  • 180,000 owned cats; and
  • 60,000 – 80,000 unowned (stray) cats

It may be no surprise to you that none of the stray cats are likely to be desexed.

But, did you know that only around 20% of owned cats are registered with councils and desexed? That means there are thousands of owned cats that may not be desexed!

That’s a lot of cats – and we know around 45% of cats and kittens entering pounds in the Melbourne area are killed.

Clearly, more affordable and accessible desexing is desperately needed. We will work with you and the community, together with councils, local vets and welfare groups, to help fill the gap.

Community Commitment

To encourage, engage and support local communities in improving the welfare of animals through low cost desexing, microchipping and pet wellness services.
