Allentown, Penn. -- Holding signs that read, "Condoms Won't Work: Fix Your Dog/Cat!" two
PETA members dressed as giant condoms—one pink and one blue—will hand out
leaflets on animal birth control at a busy intersection
in Allentown on Wednesday. Their point? That the only way to get a
handle on the cat and dog overpopulation crisis is always to have your
animals spayed or neutered.
When: Wednesday, January 30, 12 noon
Where: Intersection of N. 15th and W. Tilghman streets, Allentown
cats and dogs could wear condoms, millions of animals would be spared suffering
and death," says PETA Associate Director of Campaigns
Lindsay Rajt. "But they can't—so it's up to their guardians to take
responsibility for spaying and neutering."
Between 6 and 8
million unwanted cats and dogs enter animal shelters every year in the U.S.,
and roughly half of them are euthanized because there simply aren't enough good
homes for them. Millions more never make it to an animal shelter and are left
to fend for themselves on the streets, where they often are subjected to
cruelty, are struck by cars, or suffer from starvation, disease, or injuries.
The solution is simple: Always spay or neuter your animal companions. Spaying
one female dog can prevent 67,000 births in six years, and spaying one female
cat can prevent 370,000 births in seven years.
