The SPCA has for a long time done sterling
work promoting the cause of animal welfare
in New Zealand. All the major urban centres
have branches of the SPCA, which take in
stray and injured animals, offer subsidized
spey and neuter surgeries and prosecute cases
of animal cruelty or neglect. Clutha District
however does not have a resident SPCA
office or inspector. The needs of the Clutha
District are covered as best they are able by
staff from Dunedin and Alexandra.
In the absence of an SPCA here, Clutha Vets
has stepped up to fill in some of these roles.
In particular we have a longstanding Cat and
Kitten Rehoming Program and between the
Balclutha and Milton clinic have placed over
a thousand cats and kittens in homes in the
last 7 years.
It is kitten season right now. Female cats
come into season in spring, get pregnant
and have kittens 9 weeks later. This results
in a sudden increase in kitten numbers in
Summer. We have gone from having too few
kittens for the homes available in December
to more kittens than we can easily place at
We work hard to place kittens and can find
homes for most of them. However speying
or castrating cats is the other way of tackling
the problem. Most of the kittens bought in
to us are the result of owners forgetting or
being too busy to spey their cats before they
get pregnant. Female cats can have kittens at
only 6 months of age. Kittens can be speyed
or castrated from 3 month old and should
definitely be done before 6 months of age to
avoid unwanted pregnancy.
As an incentive to owners to spey
their female cats and neuter their
male cats we are offering a 20%
discount on these surgeries for all of
