“Operation Cat Continues”

The discount Cat De-sexing Program for Health-Care Card Holders and Pensioners provided by Lithgow Council through the sponsorship of the Cat Protection Society is continuing. 

“Operation Cat” is a program over the month of June to deliver discount de-sexing of cats in the Lithgow Local Government Area.  Lithgow Council is overseeing the program with funding and co-ordination assistance from the Cat Protection Society of NSW; and the support of Bowenfels Vet Clinic, Lithgow Veterinary Hospital and Hartley Veterinary and Animal Centre.

Lithgow Mayor Councillor Stephen Lesslie said today “This is a great opportunity for eligible residents within the Lithgow Local Government Area to take advantage of discounted desexing. It’s important to remember that kittens can have kittens and therefore should be desexed before they reach 12-16 weeks of age. However, it is never too late to prevent unwanted kittens by desexing adult cats.”

There are still spots available so register your interest ASAP to ensure you don’t miss out. The cost is $40.00 to desex and micro-chip your cat/s. The program will run from the 1st June – 30th June 2017 or until all funding is spent.

To get involved call the Cat Protection Society of NSW on (02) 9519 7201 Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm to select a vet and make payment to secure your place.
