Desex your dog

Desexing (neutering or spaying) your dog benefits dog owners and the wider community.

Two small dogs.

Spaying and neutering dogs usually:

  • reduces roaming
  • reduces aggression
  • lessens diseases
  • reduces unwanted puppies that need to be destroyed or cared for at a considerable expense to owners (food, registration, vaccinations).

The Council encourages desexing by offering discounts on registration fees for neutered and spayed pets.

How to qualify

To apply for the reduced fee you must provide written proof of desexing along with your registration form. Without proof from your veterinarian the entire dog fee will be charged.

The SPCA performs low-cost desexing operations.
