Cats breed most of the year and can have up to 10 kittens per litter. Basically, if a female cat gets pregnant three times a year, she can produce up to 30 cats.
Spaying and neutering pets, as well as the feral cats and dogs here in Cyprus, is vital to keep populations down and prevent suffering.
Our Pet Rescues
Every cat and dog we rescue here at Cyprus Pride House is sterilised when they are old enough or when well enough. It is not cheap to fund in Cyprus.
How You Can Help
Whether you are in Cyprus temporarily or permanently, if you paid out to get just one cat sterilised, you would be saving the lives of many kittens, as well as the mother.
Please do your part to help. If everyone did, think of the amount of lives it would save. Likewise, the suffering you would help stop. Always make sure you haggle the cost of the sterilising with your vet if you want to sterilise more than one cat or dog.
If there was a free service to get stray cats and dogs neutered and spayed, I am sure it would help the number of strays go down by more than half and so preventing illness among them.
If we had the money we would try to neuter/spay all the strays, but it is impossible to do this alone. We do run TNR programs when we have the funds to do so.
