The Assisted Neutering Scheme is for people on low income.
In association with local veterinary surgeons the branch is able to offer financial assistance to people on means tested benefits. Owners are asked to pay half the normal veterinary practice fee. Due to to pressures on limited branch funds we are only able to offer help to people in receipt of the following benefits:
- Job Seekers’ Allowance
- Council Tax Benefit
- Housing Benefit
- Income Support
If you would like to have your animal neutered and live in Tameside in the first instance please contact:
The RSPCA’s Greater Manchester Animal Hospital,
411 Eccles New Road,
Tel: 0300 123 0711
Or speak to your your local veterinary surgeon to ask if they participate in our scheme.
Glossop residents are outside the Hospital’s catchment area so will need to ask their own vet if they operate our scheme.
You will need to provide proof you are in receipt of any of the above benefits.
To find your nearest veterinary surgery please visit Vetlist.
This scheme is operated to reduce the number of unwanted animals in our area.
