Australia’s largest Cat Desexing and Microchipping Program to combat overpopulation
Following the launch of RSPCA and AWL’s Cat Management Plan for South Australia, cat overpopulation remains a huge challenge in SA.
Uncontrolled breeding of cats in urban areas puts cats at risk of injury and illness, while threatening native wildlife and causing nuisance issues for humans. Worst of all – uncontrolled cat breeding leads to far too many unwanted litters being abandoned.
The most effective way to address these issues is through targeted community desexing programs.
For the first time, RSPCA South Australia and Onkaparinga Council are working together to implement a targeted free cat desexing program – the largest of its kind ever in Australia – available to all residents of the Onkaparinga District.
We believe that this program, with the aim to desex 2,000 cats and kittens over the course of two years, will significantly reduce the number of homeless and unwanted felines in South Australia.
