All NRAS animals are DESEXED prior to Adoption.

Desexing can reduce behavioural problems such as roaming and aggression.  However, it is also an EXTREMELY effective strategy in preventing unwanted pregnancies.

A large proportion of animals that are abandoned and come into NRAS care are due to unwanted litters. 

Dogs can become pregnant from as early as 6 months and cats, from 4 months of age.

Whilst the National Desexing Network offers support in hardship cases, NRAS has its own Subsidised Desexing Partnership with local VETS where discounts & financial assistance are provided for desexing procedures.

Some local Northern Rivers Veterinary clinics also offer their own Subsidised Desexing promotions.   

The NRAS Subsidised Desexing & Vet Partners include:
