About FPS

Our pilot project is in Fiji.  We aim to support our partners working to tackle the issues caused by overpopulation and abandonment of animals in the following ways:

1

Alleviate some of the financial burden on the organisations in their day-to-day running costs

2

Expand the reach of desexing programs to curb the rate of animals being born into a life of suffering

3

Increase the numbers of animals they can help find loving homes

4

Help change hearts and minds to recognise these animals are victims in need of protection, not abuse

DESEXING IS THE KEY

Desexing, or spaying (for females) and neutering (for males), is the easiest way to fight overpopulation.  But desexing does more than just fight overpopulation:

 

  • Spaying eliminates the risk of uterine cancer

  • Spaying greatly reduces the risk of mammary cancer

  • Spaying eliminates the stress and discomfort that females endure during heat periods

  • Neutering makes males far less likely to roam or fight

  • Desexed animals live longer, happier lives

  • Desexing one works out to be much cheaper than feeding 4 or 5 cats or dogs

  • Neutering prevents testicular cancer

  • Neutering reduces the risk of prostate cancer

  • Desexed animals are less likely to contract deadly, contagious diseases, such as feline AIDS and feline leukemia, that are spread through bodily fluids
