Led by a strong committee composed of representatives for each major animal group – as pictured and outlined above.

Why ACA?

ACA was established as an independant animal welfare organisation, by uniting experienced animal keepers, carers and breeders. Extreme animal rights and animal liberationist ideologies have been influencing government legislation, regulation and policy development & implementation, without proper consultation, at the expense of you and your animals. We are here to provide a trustworthy, balanced voice – protecting you and your animals.

It was fantastic to see so many owners take advantage of our $50 cat desexing during October and so we have decided to extend our offer. If you need assistance with the cost to desex your animal and have a pension or health care card and live in the Shoalhaven please contact us to find out more

Kittens can be desexed once they reach 12 weeks of age. At this age they are a good size and they are still a few weeks away from the age they can start going on heat or for males, wandering and spraying. Behaviours it’s best to stop before they start.

The Shoalhaven Animal Shelter is helping us out by scanning microchips for us or if not chipped they can assist with this at the same time. Just take your cat or kitten out to the Shoalhaven Animal Shelter off BTU Road at South Nowra along with your health care card. They are open Mon-Sunday from 10am-4pm. Appointments required ph 44293410 to book.

They will then forward your details to us and our desexing officer will give you a call to issue the voucher and book the procedure with one of our participating vets. A big thank you to Nowra Vet, North Nowra Vet, Jervis Bay Vet, Berry Vets and All Creatures Vet Shoalhaven Heads and Ulladulla Vet for their support of our desexing program. The $50 voucher amount is payable to the vet on day of procedure.

If you have any further questions please give our desexing officer a call on 0403 071497

Assistance with desexing dogs is also available, give our desexing officer a call to learn more.
