Box clever and get your bullbreed neutered for free

Former WBO light-heavyweight boxing champion Nathan Cleverly has thrown his weight behind our campaign to provide free neutering for Bull Breed dogs in the SA postcode areas. Hope Rescue is offering free neutering and spaying for any Bull Breed or Bull Breed cross - applications must be received by end May. This offer applies to all Bull Terrier, Mastiff and Bulldog types and crosses. The offer is open to all households irrespective of income.

Asked why he was happy to take time out of his busy training schedule to help Hope Rescue, dog lover Nathan said: “Neutering your dog is a smart move and will not only prevent unwanted puppies but will also help to keep your dog healthy. I’m pleased to support such an important local campaign and would urge all Bull Breed owners to take up this great offer now.”

Hope Rescue often finds itself at the forefront of dealing with the result of Bull Breeds being bred irresponsibly, many ending up in local pounds, rescues and selling sites. Over one third of all the dogs it rescues each year are Bull Breeds. The sad fact is that of the 19 puppies currently in Hope Rescue’s care, 15 are Bull Breeds, a statistic that underlines the scale of the problem.

Anyone interested in getting their Bull Breed neutered or spayed for free, can contact Hope Rescue on 07516 269081or email enquiries@hoperescue.org.uk for more details. We will provide you with a free neutering voucher together with details of participating vets.

Those who live outside the SA area in Wales, or whose dog is not a Bull Breed, may be eligible for the £30 neutering scheme run by the Dogs Trust. Applicants need to be in receipt of a means-tested benefit and should simply take along proof of their benefit when taking the dog in to be neutered. The vet will only charge £30; the rest of the cost will be settled with the Dogs Trust directly by the vet. Details of vets that are taking part in the £30 scheme is available on 0845 606 3036.

The success of the campaign will depend on spreading the message far and wide. Please share this post with your friends and family and crosspost to relevant Facebook Pages, especially any “selling pages”. 

Please remember - applications close on 31st May,
