Amendments to the Cat Management Act which are currently before the Tasmanian Parliament require domestic cats to be desexed by four months of age. We expect that these amendments will be passed soon and want to get ahead of the changes.
More and more people have embraced cat ownership during the pandemic. At the same time, we know many Tasmanian households are experiencing financial hardship, which means that the cost of desexing their cats is often beyond their reach. This can cause great stress to owners and their cats. It also increases the risk of unwanted litters of kittens that can cause environmental damage if they become feral.
It is clear that there is an obvious need to offer financial assistance to those people who are on concession or health-care cards to enable them to meet the cost of desexing their cats.
So we are launching a pilot state-wide desexing program for people who are eligible for Centrepay.
This scheme offers a simple online system to help cat owners stretch out the payments for their desex vet bills. The owner pays us a deposit of $30 up front. We pay the vet bill for them and they then repay the balance owing through their Centrelink payments at a minimum of $25 per fortnightly payment.
