Last Hope Animal Charity Cat Spaying Scheme
Last year, Last Hope Animal Charity faced the highest number of cats and kittens abandoned and in need of our help than any other year since we began operating over ten years ago.
In order to prevent such high numbers again this year, for the month of February, we will have a Spaying Scheme running in Smith and Foley Vets Navan and Kells, and Joseph Neylon Vets Dunboyne.
This scheme will run for the month of February and we are focusing on female cats initially. We will be running another scheme closer to the summer months which will be open to male cats. The reason that we are only offering this to female cats at the moment is because female cats are preparing to breed at this time of year and by offering discounted spaying to over 180 cats, we are preventing 360 litters of kittens being born this year alone. We cannot emphasize enough the importance of neutering, it helps to prevent the spread of disease, it can help in preventing cancer and most importantly, prevent more kittens being born unnecessarily.
For those who wish to avail of this scheme, Last Hope will pay €25, the owner of the cat will pay €25 and the vets will cover the remainder of the fee. This offer is open to anyone that would like to avail of it and the vouchers will be given out by the vets on a first come first served basis. For more information please visit our website www.lasthope.ie or call 085 717 2024. Please note, you do not need to contact Last Hope should you wish to book your cat in under this scheme, you can phone the vets directly.

For a number of years, Last Hope Animal Charity has been working tirelessly in the Meath area, taking in animals from all walks of life, providing them with the veterinary treatment they need, giving them the love they deserve and finding them wonderful homes. Of late, we have taken in a number of pets whose owners passed away. In light of this, we have decided to set up a scheme for those who are concerned about what will happen to their pet should they pass away.
Many people make provisions for their family and their assets, but are unsure of what options they have for their pets – though many people have family members who would be only too happy to take in these pets, others don’t have family to turn to.
To date, a number of Last Hopes supporters have made provisions for their pets in their will – in the event of them passing away, their pets will be taken in to our care – this gives them great comfort, knowing that their pets will be looked after and comforted during a difficult time.
If this is something that you are interested in, or if you know someone who has concerns of this nature, please contact us (085 717 2024 or email@example.com ) and we will endeavor to provide the solution.
Please note, Last Hope is currently full and cannot take in any surrenders (cats or dogs) or stray cats or dogs. We urgently need more foster homes for both cats and dogs to continue to be able to take animals in. If you can foster, please fill in Foster form for cats or Foster form for dogs

It will be a tandem skydive but may not be for the faint hearted so we would ask anyone thinking of signing up for it to give it plenty of due thought and consideration before making a commitment. In saying that, it will no doubt be an exhilarating and thrilling experience and a memory to a last a lifetime! And all for the benefit of the animals that come into the care of LHAC What more could you ask for?! For further details, please contact Claire: firstname.lastname@example.org or Linda: email@example.com.
Times are hard for everyone and with so many people out of work, we know that it is difficult to offer animals a home. However, fostering is a brilliant way to help us, all bedding and food is provided and nobody is ever out of pocket. Fostering is rewarding and so much fun and for those who have spare time on their hands, it is a great way to contribute to charity without spending money.
We desperately need fosterers (ideally within 40 mile radius of Navan). If you are interested, please contact us.
