There are thousands of stray and abandoned dogs in the UK, many of which are needlessly destroyed each year. If owners were to have their dogs neutered, much of this unnecessary suffering could be avoided.
Dogs Trust £35 Neutering works with hundreds of participating veterinary practices to assist owners with the costs of neutering their dog.
It is a regional scheme, available to owners in:
- London Boroughs
- The North of England
- Northern Ireland
(to check if your postcode is eligible, please contact our neutering hotline: 0333 202 1148)
Who are in receipt of any of the following means-tested benefits:
- Income support
- Jobseeker’s Allowance
- Child Tax Credit
- Working tax credit
- Housing Benefit
- Council Tax reduction/ Council tax Support
- Universal Credit
- Pension Credit
- A tenant of the NI Housing Executive
And who are looking to neuter dogs of the following breeds:
- Staffordshire Bull Terrier
- American Bull Dog
- German Shepherd
- Jack Russell Terrier
- Border Collie
- Crossbreeds where one of the breeds is identifiable as one of those listed
We also offer £35 neutering for dog owners in Wales with a farm holding number, should the dog be of one of the breeds listed above. In these cases, dog owners do not need to be in receipt of means tested benefit.
If you are unsure if you qualify, or want to find your nearest participating vet, please call our neutering hotline: 0333 202 1148

If you qualify under the scheme, and have booked an appointment with a participating vet, 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.
Please note – Our subsidised neutering scheme can only cover keyhole spays if the vet is happy to do it at the same price as a regular spay.
