A COUNTY animal charity is reminding owners they can still apply for free neutering of dogs.

The RSPCA has paid the full cost of neutering 72 dogs and has enough cash for more operations.

Twelve month vouchers ensure animals are neutered at the most suitable time.

Any Herefordshire resident receiving means-tested benefit can apply for cover the full cost of dog castration or spaying of a bitch.

Application forms are available from Arrowfield Vets in Kington, Fresh Acre in Bromyard, John Horlocks and Ryelands in Leominster and Leadon Vale in Ledbury.
