Croydon Council’s dog warden service works in close partnership with Dogs Trust to help promote responsible dog ownership. They have 50 low cost neutering vouchers for selected breeds, allowing owners who are on benefits or a low income and living in a Croydon postcode to get their dog neutered for just £35 at any one of their participating vets. The procedure normally costs between £200- £500 depending on the size of the dog so this is a huge saving and will hopefully encourage owners to go ahead. For more information call 0208 726 6000.
There is a UK wide overpopulation of unwanted dogs and there are many owners who would like to have their dog neutered but simply cannot afford it. This leads to accidental litters, continuous straying, dog thefts and unneutered dogs being sold to new owners, antisocial behaviour involving dogs and dangerous dogs.
