Photos: Animals PETA Helped This Month

Written by Michelle Kretzer | May 18, 2012

Some people may know about PETA only from what they see on TV or read online or in the gossip mags, but celebrities aren’t the only stars who work for PETA. I’m talking about our hardworking superstar spay-and-neuter clinic staffers, of course.

Six—sometimes seven!—days a week, PETA’s mobile clinics provide animals in Virginia and North Carolina with free to low-cost sterilization surgeries. In April alone, the mobile clinics spayed or neutered 717 animals, and PETA’s Community Animal Project fieldworkers even transported 29 more to and from the clinics. Here are just a few of the lucky animals “SNIP’ed” by our fabulous medical team this month:

You can help end the animal homelessness crisis by volunteering at a spay-and-neuter clinic in your area or offering to transport an animal belonging to someone without transportation to a spay or neuter appointment.

    And if I may clarify, it’s because I have two rescue dogs myself. We have a chiweenie, and I don’t know his story entirely except that he lived with 12 rotties. And, the is, well, we call him a “chiwatsit”, as we don’t know what he’s a mix of. We spotted him on our community group. He was picked up as a stray and, if we hadn’t gotten him, he would have gone to an animal shelter the next day. They are both just sweet dogs.

    Stories like this make me happy when I’m having a lousy time.

    Thank you, Maellyne! For ideas on how to become active for animals, please read “PETA’s Guide to Becoming an Activist” at A great way to start is by joining our activist network at so you can work with other people in your area to help animals—there’s strength in numbers, even if the numbers are small to start out with. Thank you for all you do to help animals! -Becky
