Parra-Pets-Matta Desexing Program

Don't let them breed behind your back, desex meow! Do your bit. Because litters can happen sooner than you think.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this program is on hold. For information on subsidised desexing please visit RSPCA Outreach Animal Assistance program, the Animal Welfare League and the National Desexing Network.


Did you know Council offers a heavily subsidised desexing program for both cats and dogs living in the City of Parramatta Local Government Area.

This program is not available for breeders, rescue groups, or trap neuter release (TNR) programs.

Desexing costs

The cost of desexing a pet can be expensive, but desexing our pets is important. That’s why Council has teamed up with selected local vets to offer low cost desexing during the months of June and July.

Why desex pets?

(Back to top)
  • Desexed pets live longer healthier lives, are less prone to wander, fight, or be anti-social, and have a reduced risk of certain cancers.
  • Desexing your pet helps to reduce pet overpopulation and reduces the amount of pets that are euthanised due to lack of suitable homes.
  • Undesexed domestic cats who are allowed to roam add to stray cat population which can have a negative impact on wildlife.
  • Cats can become pregnant at just 4 months old, and dogs can become pregnant at 5 months, so early desexing is important.
  • One undesexed female cat can produce 420,000 kittens over 7 years!*
  • Life-time registration fees are heavily subsidised for desexed animals.

Don’t delay funds are limited so now is the time to take up this great offer and have your pet desexed.

Cats can be desexed for $30, dogs under 25kg for $100 and dogs over 25kg $150.

*based on 4 to 6 litters per year and their offspring breeds for 7 years.
