Animal welfare statistics for March 2009

During March we rehomed a total of 11 animals and neutered 51 (16 dogs 32 cats 2 rabbits and 1 ferret). We chipped 20 and provided low-cost veterinary treatment for 358 owned animals (214 dogs, 124 cats, 9 rabbits and 11 miscellaneous species) and 35 stray animals (4 dogs, 31 cats).

We had to put down 1 dog, 3 cats and 3 miscellaneous species on veterinary advice.

In comparison with March 2008, the neutering figures are way up — I'm not sure if this is because more people are aware they can get help with the cost of neutering their pets, or because more people are feeling short of money.
