Aussie Philanthropist to fund low cost
desexing clinics

Ellen Magner, May 2011

A string of low cost vet clinics are set to open in Tasmania, New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia. Ultimately these will be located all around Australia is the dream of Jan Cameron one of Australia’s richest business women and founder of the clothing brand 'Kathmandu'. The clinics will offer discounted de-sexing to people on low incomes, in an attempt to reduce the number of unwanted pets being put down.

The clinics are primarily funded by Tasmanian businesswoman Jan Cameron, supplemented by donations from the public. The prices offered by the clinic offer a $50 to $100 discount on the standard price of de-sexing for cats, and a $50 to $200 discount on the standard price for de-sexing dogs.The clinics will also offer flexible payment options.

The clinics will be modelled on the Animal Welfare League Queensland clinic currently operating on the Gold Coast. The AWL clinic has seen a drop in the number of animals euthanized since it opened in 2001.

The first of these clinics has been operating in Hobart for the past few months, with further plans for two fixed clinics each in New South Wales and Queensland, and mobile clinics in Western Queensland and Western Australia.

If you would like to desex your own dog or cat then you will find all the veterinary clinics and hospitals that offer desexing on our Vets link on the left menu.
