June is De­sexy Month, and the sole Manawatu mem­ber of na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tion Kitty Cat Fix­ers is look­ing for vol­un­teer col­lec­tors.

Kath Bryan says she wants any­one with an in­ter­est in an­i­mal wel­fare, par­tic­u­larly cats, to get in­volved.

Since 2011, the reg­is­tered char­ity’s goal has been to re­duce the num­ber of un­wanted stray cats and kit­tens through as­sist­ing catown­ing fam­i­lies who strug­gle fi­nan­cially, to de-sex their fe­lines.

Ini­tially cat own­ers pay $30 to­wards the pro­ce­dure, with Kitty Cat Fix­ers pick­ing up the bal­ance, which can be any­where be­tween $70 and $130.

Post-surgery, the owner re­pays the group at a mu­tu­ally agreed amount.

The group has so far helped de­sex 1153 cats.

For the fourth an­nual ap­peal in June, Kath has or­gan­ised col­lec­tion points in Palmer­ston North, Feild­ing, San­son, Levin and Whanganui.
