Mobile Clinic Offers to Spay, Neuter, and Vaccinate Pets for Just $4 in Honor of Independence Day

Norfolk, Va. — PETA
will help the dogs and cats of Hampton Roads' servicemembers declare their independence
from litters of puppies and kittens on Tuesday, when one of the group's mobile
veterinary clinics will spay, neuter, and vaccinate the companion animals of
active military personnel for just $4 each:
Date: Tuesday, July 3
Time: 9–9:30 a.m. drop-off
Place: PETA headquarters, 501 Front St., Norfolk
"Hampton Roads' animal shelters are overflowing with animals who
need a good home—and this overpopulation crisis will continue as long as people
aren't spaying and neutering their dogs and cats," says PETA Vice
President Daphna Nachminovitch. "The only way to stop euthanasia is
through a spay-and-neuter revolution, and PETA is glad to lead the charge this
Fourth of July."
An unaltered dog and her offspring can produce tens of thousands of
puppies in just a few years—and a cat and her offspring can produce hundreds
of thousands of kittens in less than a decade. Six to 8 million homeless
dogs and cats are left at crowded animal shelters every year, and half of them
must be euthanized for lack of suitable homes. Others never make it to a safe
haven and are abandoned to fend for themselves on the streets, where they often
suffer from starvation, are hit by cars, or are abused by cruel people. The
only effective, long-term solution is spaying and neutering. PETA's
sterilization clinics have spayed or neutered more than 80,000 animals in just
the last decade, saving countless animal lives in Norfolk and beyond.
To make an
appointment for spaying or neutering, members of the public are encouraged to
call PETA at 757-622-PETA, option 3.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
