Low Cost Neutering with the Dogs Trust £35 (conditions apply)

Found 5th Mar 2016
I guess this is not really a deal but not really sure where to put this (please move to wherever it should be :-) ). It is quite specific but hopefully it's information that may help some people (and dogs).
I have staffordshire bull terriers who are lovely dogs and it's so sad to see so many of them in rescue because the majority have been bred to make a few pound and nothing else in mind. The voucher is for other breeds as well as staffs.

£35 low cost neutering is available to those in receipt of means-tested benefit (Income support; Jobseeker’s Allowance; ESA, Child Tax Credit, Working tax credit; Housing Benefit; Council Tax reduction/ Council tax Support; Universal Credit, Pension Credit or a tenant of the NI Housing Executive) if your dog is one of the following listed breeds:

Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Mastiff, Rottweiler, American Bull Dog, Greyhound, Lurcher, Akita, Husky, Malamute, German Shepherd, Samoyed, Jack Russell Terrier, Collie and Crossbreeds where the primary breed is identifiable as one of those listed will also be eligible. And you live in one of the following postcodes:

North of England: BD, CA, DL, DH, DN, HG, HU, LS, NE, S, SR, TD, TS, WF, YO, BB, BL, CH, CW, FY, HD, HX, LA, L, M, OL, PR, SK, ST8, WA, WF12, WF14, WN

Wales: CF, NP, SA, LD, LL, SY, CH5, CH6, CH7, CH8, HR (HAY ON WYE)

Northern Ireland: BT

If you qualify under the scheme you will need to book the appointment with a participating vet and simply take along proof of benefit and photo ID (or two forms of other ID) when you attend your veterinary appointment. The vet will charge you £35 and the rest of the cost will be settled by the vet with Dogs Trust.

Your dog is on the list so would only cost £35 if you go to one of the registered vets. That's what we are doing with our bullmastiff (who is the softest dog going).

Do they offer a discount on humans too?

So just to clarify do you need to be on some kind of benifit + have one of those breeds of dogs + live in one of those post codes to qualify. Thats not specific at all then.

...... Alot of hoops to jump through

Better than a deal where they have three of an item in a single Tesco in the **** end of nowhere, though haha

OT

This deal is the dogs b*ll*x

people on benefits should be neutered

Same applies to RSPCA vets, but as far as I know they are not breed specific.

If you have to rely on a charity to look after your dog - why the hell do you have one???? When you decide to have a dog join your home, you should understand there will be a lot of costs such as neutering and chipping. The Dogs Trust shouldn't be funding people's selfish decisions.

£35 thats a snip

If you can afford a dog then you can afford to get it neutered [at your own expense] and if you can't, you cannot afford a dog.

I have talked to my dog about how relationships should be allowed to blossom and that sex is something that should come from a loving partnership.

Only good for the job-shy and other related leeches.

Hear, hear. That's exactly what I said to my sister who was left with our 9 year old family dog after the death of our mother - she should just dump her in a shelter. Apparently that's "callous and mean" though, crazy liberals these days...

​Yes, and the same should apply to people who have children and then expect to have child benefit and any other handouts they can claim for!

I also found this with the blue cross where i beleive it give anyone a discount as long as the vets agree:-

Costs

Blue Cross will contribute the following amounts towards the cost of neutering carried out at a private veterinary practice. Unfortunately pets being neutered at a charity clinic or hospital are not eligible for a grant:

Male dog £50
Female dog £75
Male cat £20
Female cat £30
Male rabbit £20
Female rabbit £30
Male horse £70

We will send you a voucher by email.

Please print and take this with you along with photo ID such as a passport or driving licence (two utility bills can be used if you do not have photo ID) to your vet.

If you live in or around Coventry or Felixstowe, it will usually be cheaper to use our neutering schemes in these areas instead. If you live in Manchester, please contact Buchanan Vets in Timperley (0161 980 3663) or Baguley (0161 945 0880).

I stumbled across these when looking for rescue dogs. I work with a lot of vulnerable people who unfortunately do not think of the expense of looking after dogs and will not be able to pay a lot to look after them. They are also more prone to the influence of others who often do not give good advice. Unfortunately they also tend to have the "tough" looking breeds.
At least if this info could be passed onto them it can spare the dog a potential life of puppy after puppy.

A 9 year old dog should already be neutered and chipped! If you cannot look after a dog, it is callous and mean not to give it up. There are a lot of people out there who would love to adopt an older dog already trained.

​Because you got the dog BEFORE getting ill or losing your job or perhaps your partner dies or leaves you I mean there are lots of reasons.

Ffs can't people like you engage their brain before spouting stupid inane lines from the Daily Mail? This is right up there with blaming the sick, disabled, poor and immigrants for all of Britain's problems - Grow up!

​Well said, these idiots with their Murdoch newspaper headlines can drop dead

Dogs trust.... and Neutering....

Those 2 things don't sound like they should go together

That was an example you muppet to counter the idiot saying that people on benefits shouldn't get pets ie they got the pet when they were working or inherited it.

As for lots of people looking to rehome animals we work for recues helping put, fostering etc and that is generally complete rubbish there is NOT a lot of people out there looking to take rescue dogs in at all quite the opposite in fact, if your claim were correct we wouldn't have dogs/cats etc being destroyed every day because there's no home for them. Fact is its many times harder to rehome an older animal than a kitten or puppy

Don't be so ridiculous. There are not a lot of people waiting to adopt old dogs (why on Earth do you think so many are euthanised?).

Though your suggestion that a dog is better off being ripped away from a loving family and put in a shelter than living un-spayed is so absurd I can only imagine you're clueless on the subject anyway.

Completely agree. Unfortunately not everyone is sufficiently educated to make those decisions and the economics for the Charity is that this is the cheaper option when compared to a litter of unwanted pups to care for.
Anyway, heat given for raising awareness of Animal Charities.

All these if you can afford a dog you can afford £100 to get it neutered are rediculous. What about all the elderly who have them as companions? The disabled? Those who buy a dog earning 30k per year then are made redundant? Should they dump theirs in a river?
And forgetting about all those what about those who just work hard, earn minimum wage topped up with tax credits and would like a family dog for the children, should they not have one because they arnt fortunate to have been born well off?
It's rediculous, I sometimes wonder how Cameron ever got it then I see comments like this...
I think this is a really good idea and hopefully will help a few people out, thanks OP

Without pointing fingers, there is a lot of mean opinionated rubbish on here today. Shame. I expect the OP intended to help rather than provoke a load of unnecessary nastiness. Thanks for posting.

​They should neuter all bigots and ignorant plebs. That should sort out a fair few people and the future of humanity!

​Damn! Liked your comment by accident - meant to click like on the next one down

My sister has two dogs as her son is disabled and is often home unwell. She can't work because of this and the dogs are his only friends at home because he has to travel to a special needs base in another town for school. It's not always cut and dried. This offer would be great for them but sadly, we live in Scotland so it's a no go by the looks of it.
