Parra-Pets-Matta Desexing Program

Thank you for your interest in Council's annual desexing program for 2023!

We are busy getting things ready for Council's annual desexing program for this year and Council is pleased to announce that we are partnering with the Animal Welfare League (Western Suburbs and Hills District) branch to deliver this great program to the community.

Applications for this years program will be live in the first week of June 2023 so, please check back here then.

Please note, there is a limited amount of vouchers available and not all applications will be successful.

Also, this program is only available to residents of the City of Parramatta Council's Local Government Area and proof of residency will be required prior to a voucher being issued.

Thank you for your support and we appreciate your patience

Why desex pets?

(Back to top)
  • Desexed pets live longer healthier lives, and are less prone to wander, fight, be anti-social and it reduces the risk of certain cancers.
  • Desexing your pet helps to reduce pet overpopulation and reduces the amount of pets that are euthanised due to lack of suitable homes.
  • Undesexed domestic cats who are allowed to roam, add to stray cat population which can have a negative impact on wildlife.
  • Cats can become pregnant at just 4 months old, and dogs can become pregnant at 5 months so early desexing is important.
  • One undesexed female cat can produce 420,000 kittens over 7 years!**
  • Life-time registration fees are heavily subsidized for desexed animals.
