Princeton, N.J. -- Today, PETA sent an offer to Daniel Saunders, administrator
and deputy state historic preservation officer of the New Jersey Department of
Environmental Protection's Historic Preservation Office, that could help save
Princeton Battlefield and also take a bite out of the homeless-dog and -cat crisis.
If Saunders allows PETA to place
an ad reading, "Battle Animal Homelessness: Have Your Cats and Dogs
Spayed or Neutered," at the site, then PETA will make a donation to help
preserve the battlefield. PETA's request follows reports that Princeton
Battlefield has been added to the list of the country's most endangered
historic places because nearby development threatens the landscape. In its
letter, PETA points out that the ad would help save more cats and dogs from
ending up on the streets or in overburdened animal shelters, which must
euthanize 3 to 4 million unwanted animals every year.
"Americans have always risen to the occasion when
confronted with a crisis, and PETA would like to see that same spirit applied
to the battle against animal homelessness," says PETA Executive Vice
President Tracy Reiman. "It's important to remember that the millions of
cats and dogs struggling to survive on the streets or languishing in animal
shelters came from a father and mother whose guardians didn't have them spayed

Dear Mr. Saunders:
I am writing on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment
of Animals (PETA) and our more than 3 million members and supporters, including
thousands in New Jersey. We are hoping to work with you to tackle two important
issues: protecting the historic Princeton Battlefield and reducing the dog and
cat overpopulation crisis. In exchange for a donation to the Historic
Preservation Office, would you consider allowing PETA to place a "Battle
Animal Homelessness: Have Your Cats and Dogs Spayed or Neutered" ad on the
Spaying and neutering is crucial to helping decrease the
deluge of unwanted dogs and cats born each year who are left to struggle for
survival on the streets or are dropped off at severely crowded animal shelters
at taxpayer expense. Millions of these animals must be killed because there are
not enough good homes to go around. Communities spend large sums of taxpayer
dollars each year coping with problems that spaying and neutering can solve,
such as rounding up stray or abandoned animals, feeding them, and housing them.
Our ad would help Princeton residents and historical
preservationists enjoy the Princeton Battlefield for generations to come while
serving as a poignant reminder of the lifesaving benefits of spaying and
neutering dogs and cats. Please contact me at to discuss this exciting
possibility. Thank you for your consideration.
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.
