Subsidy for the sterilization or castration of cats

The city of Differdange has put in place a subsidy for cat owners wishing to have their four-legged companion neutered or spayed. The subsidy amounts to:

  • 50 € for the castration of a male
  • 70 € for the neutering of a female.

The modalities are simple. All you have to do is go to the customer service department at the municipality with the following documents:

  • the veterinary doctor’s bill previously paid
  • a bank account, to which the subsidy can be transferred
  • proof that the cat has a subcutaneous microchip (upon presentation of the cat’s passport)

The grant is only for people living in Differdange who own the cat in question.
