Mexico City -- As lawmakers consider a reform to Mexico
City's civil code that would allow couples to decide on the length of their
marriage—from two years to a lifetime—PETA plans to enter the fray with a
proposal for a new
billboard that shows a dog and guardian and reads, "I ♥ a man who
isn't afraid of commitment. Some relationships are for life." The group
hopes to remind anyone thinking of adding a dog or cat to the family that it
means making a lifetime commitment to that animal that can last as long as 20
"When you say 'I do' to adopting a dog or cat, you're
saying 'I do' to caring for him or her for the rest of that animal's life, for
richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health," says PETA Vice President
Daphna Nachminovitch. "Dogs and cats would never abandon us, and it's our
duty to return that unconditional love and support."
The decision to take a dog or cat home should be weighed
carefully by the whole family and should never be made on a whim. Animals
require veterinary care, training, nutritious food, attention, and love, and
they shouldn't be discarded when the new baby arrives or when a new apartment
doesn't allow animals. Too often, animals purchased by unprepared families end
up banished to lonely lives on chains or in cages. Others are dumped on the
streets to starve, get hit by cars, or be abused by cruel people.
When families are fully prepared to welcome an animal into
their lives, the best thing that they can do is adopt a homeless dog or cat
whose life depends on being given a second chance.

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.
