RSPCA Cornwall Branch can offer subsidised neutering for owners who are on means-tested benefits*.

Each voucher covers the majority of the cost of the cat neutering procedure and the owner just pays £10 per cat.  There is a form below which you can download to apply for vouchers by post.

Cat Neutering Voucher application form

Once you receive your voucher, you need to present it, together with your £10 per cat payment to the vet when booking the neutering procedure.  As vouchers are not issued directly from the Centre, it can take around 10 days to process your application, so please allow time for this before booking the neutering appointment.

If you have any difficulty downloading the form, please contact us by email – to request a copy is sent to you.    All applications will require a copy of proof of benefits and Cornish address (which will be returned to you) and an SAE for the vouchers to be sent to you.

Please write CNC in the top corner of the envelope to ensure it is passed to the right department without delay.

Is your cat Micro-chipped?

We also offer free cat micro-chipping for owners on means-tested benefits*.    The same form linked above will cover this application, so if your cat is not chipped, please consider getting this done whilst they are at the vets being neutered.

It is important that chip details are kept up to date should you change address or telephone number, but the vets inserting the chip will provide details of how to update this information.


RSPCA Cornwall Branch can also offer a small contribution towards vet bills for those on means-tested benefits*.  Please see our separate Welfare Assistance page for further information.
