Shreveport, La. -- Holding signs that read, "Dogs Can't Use Condoms: Spay and Neuter!" and "Condoms Won't Work: Fix Your 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 Shreveport on Wednesday. Their point? That the only way to get a handle on the cat and dog overpopulation crisis is to always have your animal companions spayed or neutered.
When: Wednesday, April 7, 12 noonWhere: Northeast corner of Fannin and Edwards streets, Shreveport
Almost 8 million unwanted cats and dogs end up in 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; suffer from starvation, disease, or injuries; or are struck by cars. 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 420,000 births in seven years.
"If cats and dogs could wear condoms, millions of animals would be spared from suffering and death," says PETA campaigner Virginia Fort. "But they can't--so it's up to their guardians to take responsibility for spaying and neutering."
