Hampton Roads, Va. -- There's nothing unlucky about black
cats—as long as their guardians are diligent about having them spayed or
neutered. That's why PETA is offering Hampton Roads residents the services of
its "Spay and Neuter Immediately, Please!" (SNIP) and Holland Ware
Clinic mobile sterilization units to spay and neuter black cats and black
kittens who are more than 12 weeks old free of charge on Monday, October
29, at both PETA's Norfolk headquarters, 501 Front St., and at the Jefferson
Flea Market, 10171 Jefferson Ave., in Newport News.
"For all the black
cats we spay or neuter, this Halloween will be the luckiest day of their
lives," says PETA Senior Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch. "It
means that more kittens won't be brought into the world just to end up
struggling for survival on the mean streets or dying for a home at a local
Every year, animal
shelters are forced to euthanize millions of unwanted cats and kittens for lack
of a suitable home. Countless other animals are abandoned to fend for
themselves outdoors. Sterilized animals are less likely to develop cancer of
the reproductive system, get into fights, and become infected with deadly contagious
diseases such as feline leukemia and feline AIDS.
One unspayed female cat
can produce 36 cats in just one and a half years, and an unneutered male cat
can help create limitless litters of kittens. PETA's mobile clinics have
sterilized more than 80,000 animals since the program's inception in 2001,
preventing the births of hundreds of thousands of unwanted kittens and
PETA also cautions cat
guardians never to allow cats outside unattended. Doing so leaves them
vulnerable to car accidents, attacks by other animals, and abuse by cruel
people. Black cats, especially, have often been stolen, tortured, and/or
killed around Halloween.
Appointments must be
made by October 26 by calling 757-622-7382 and choosing option 3. For more information, please visit PETA.org.
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.
