A Purrfect Way to Honor Simon Cowell’s 51st

Written by PETA | October 7, 2010

What better way to honor Simon Cowell, American Idol creator and staunch spay-and-neuter advocate, on his 51st birthday than by taking action on an issue that he so strongly supports?

Mr. Cowell has proved that he is a true friend to animals—and as a birthday present, PETA’s “Spay and Neuter Immediately, Please!” (SNIP) mobile veterinary program will add 51 more, (for FREE), surgeries to the 7,300 that we’ve already done so far this year—and the whopping 64,721 sterilizations that we’ve performed since 2001.

Consider that just one unaltered female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in only six years—and that in seven years, one female cat and her offspring can produce 420,000 kittens! Then consider that a very simple, inexpensive (or even free) spay or neuter surgery can make a huge dent in the number of homeless animals who are cast into the streets or left at animal shelters.

If you haven’t already, do as Simon says: Have your companion animals spayed or neutered. And please wish our caring idol the best birthday ever—leave your message for him in the comments section below! Happy birthday, Simon!

    Simon, wishing you a very happy birthday! American Idol won’t be the same without you. I really did like you. I am glad Randy is staying but not thrilled with Jennifer Lopez as a judge. She wears fur as far as I know. I am not a fan of hers by any means but I am a fan of yours because you care so much for animals. Best of luck in whatever you do next.
