An RSPCA neutering campaign to prevent unwanted kittens and puppies has proved a major success. The Norwich Neuter Scheme run by the RSPCA Norwich and Mid Norfolk Branch has smashed expectations, so much so that it has closed early.

The project offered reduced cost neutering and microchipping for dogs and cats in Norwich and areas of mid Norfolk.

It was started to prevent the county's unwanted cats and dogs, especially kittens, and helped 240 dogs and 140 cats.

Chloe Martin, deputy animal welfare officer, said: 'We hope this will make an impact on the number of stray and unwanted animals in our area.'

The RSPCA Norwich and Mid Norfolk Branch is currently looking for donations for their charity shops for future animal neutering schemes.

It has shops in Cromer, Sheringham, Attleborough, Wymondham, as well as Queens Road and Magdalen Street in Norwich.
