    The Mayhew Animal Home believes that neutering is one of the hallmarks of responsible pet ownership. Thousands of animals languish and die in rescue centres and pounds, yet further supply is constantly created by pet shops and breeders, as well as owners who haven't had their pets neutered. Unfortunate and unnecessary breeding costs thousands of animals their lives every year and could so easily be stopped.

    Neutering is a simple, quick and low risk operation and is performed on every animal adopted from The Mayhew Animal Home. As well as the obvious benefits of reducing the population of unwanted animals and the difficulty of dealing with unwanted litters of puppies, neutering can be be extremely beneficial to your pet's health and behaviour. Un-neutered animals face potentially life threatening diseases such as cancer of the reproductive organs, and potentially severe infections such as pyometra. Conditions such as these together with adolescent hormone related behavioural problems can be eliminated if neutering is performed at a young age.

    The Mayhew Animal Home neuters from 12 weeks for dogs and 8-9 weeks for cats, assessing each animal before the neutering procedure. We will not proceed with an early-age neuter if we believe the procedure to be detrimental to the animal's wellbeing and future development, but will wait until a later stage to neuter the animal.

    Neutering appointments are available Monday - Friday. Please call 020 8969 0178 to make an appointment.

    The Mayhew is presently offering Bull Breed Neutering free of charge. We are grateful to the support of Animal Friends Insurance who contribute to the running of this scheme.

    I think 12 weeks is dangerous, but i do agree with offering free neutering.

    Somethign needs to be done about the over-breeding of certain dogs. Every rescue centre seems to be full of SBT's and their crosses.
