Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

The SPCA Auck­land is try­ing to com­bat the thou­sands of un­wanted kit­tens that end up on its doorstep each year by launch­ing its first tar­geted desexing pro­gramme. From March 13 to March24, it is of­fer­ing free desexing for cats in 12 Auck­land sub­urbs - Avon­dale, Glen Innes, Hen­der­son, Man­gere, Ma­nurewa, Massey, Mt Roskill, Mt Welling­ton, Otahuhu, Otara, Pa­pakura and Pa­p­a­toe­toe. Its goal is to de­sex at least 500 cats and kit­tens - a small por­tion of the 25,000 un­wanted fe­lines that it has gath­ered over the past three years. De­sexed cats are less likely to spray and mark their ter­ri­tory in your house, less likely to yowl loudly through­out the night and less likely to get into fights. They have re­duced risk of health prob­lems such as can­cer, are more af­fec­tion­ate and friendly and live longer, health­ier lives.
