Help prevent hundreds of unwanted pets being ‘put to sleep’

Have your say

EVERY week in Britain, approximately 2,000 unwanted dogs and cats, and many other smaller animals, such as rabbits, are ‘put to sleep’ because there aren’t enough good homes for them.

P.U.P. (Prevent Unwanted Pets) is a registered charity and a contact point for help towards the cost of spaying and neutering. It offers help where there is no other help available.

All the spaying and neutering operations are carried out by private vets.

P.U.P. also gives advice on how to keep the weight down of animals, should they increase in weight after being spayed or neutered.

Spaying and neutering not only reduces the number of animals being ‘put to sleep’ but also reduces the number of animals going to bad homes. Many of the animals currently being ‘put to sleep’ are Staffie dogs.

If anyone would like help for their animals, please contact us on 0115 9878722. Help is available in most parts of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire..

In a few weeks’ time, P.U.P. hopes to have a stall on Hucknall Market Place to raise funds through the sale of lots of bargains.
