How we did in 2016
In 2016, the Venton Centre rehomed 441 animals, a 2.5% increase on 2015. Operational performance was achieved through:
- continuing to run the subsidised countywide cat spay programme acting in partnership with thirty-two veterinary practices: 523 cats were spayed in 2016 at a cost of just £10 to their owners. Since the start of the campaign, 1,595 cats have been spayed, costing the Branch £63,800
- spaying dogs at certain Travellers’ sites in the county in association with Cornwall Council: in 2016, four dogs were spayed at a cost of £602 to the Branch
- funding the Bull Breeds neutering programme which is run in association with Devon & Cornwall Police: in 2016, six dogs were neutered at a cost of £1,004 to the Branch.
