Group Offers to Create 'Fix Your Bitches! The Tucker Max No-Cost to Low-Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic'
For Immediate Release:April 5, 2012

Austin, Texas -- While Planned
Parenthood may have turned down Austin-based personality Tucker Max's
offer of a $500,000 donation in exchange for naming rights to a Texas women's
health clinic, PETA is more than willing to accept Max's aid. In a letter sent
today to the I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell author, PETA suggests that
Max, who is a dog guardian, donate some or all of that sum to PETA to buy and
equip a brand-new mobile veterinary clinic. The group would wrap Max's
image—perhaps with Max's dog—on the traveling "Fix Your Bitches! The
Tucker Max No-Cost to Low-Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic." (A mock-up image
is available here.)
"Dogs and cats
can't use condoms," says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk, "so PETA
would be happy to have Tucker Max's help in staving the flow of dogs and cats
who flood U.S. animal shelters by the millions every year for want of a
information, please visit PETA.org.

am writing on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and
our more than 3 million members and supporters with a proposition we hope
you’ll like. Having heard about Planned Parenthood’s rejection of your offer,
we’d like to propose an alternative way that you can help prevent unwanted
pregnancies, receive a tax break, and put your name proudly on a clinic—perhaps
along with a picture of you and your dog! We would like to purchase a brand-new
mobile spay-and-neuter truck and name it “Fix Your Bitches! The Tucker Max
No-Cost to Low-Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic.” The truck would cost just shy of
$400,000 (delivered fully equipped) and give us $100,000 in leftover funds to
spend on veterinary fees—if you are willing to spend the same amount you were
offering Planned Parenthood.
2001, our mobile clinics have helped prevent the births of hundreds of
thousands of unwanted cats and dogs. In fact, PETA spays and neuters more than
800 dogs and cats every month in some of the most impoverished areas of North
Carolina and lower Virginia. We assist owners who have a hard time paying their
utility bills, are without transportation of any kind, and often live in
trailer parks. One of our mobile clinics is on its last legs (it’s in the repair
shop more than it’s on the road), so this would be a huge help.
of our clinics currently display images of Simon Cowell and Ron Artest. Please see
this mock-up of what the
Tucker Max clinic could look like, complete with the “Fix Your Bitches!” slogan
and an image of you hugging a dog.
of dogs and cats must be euthanized every year because people continue to let
them breed when there are not enough homes to go around. Most end up in
shelters—others are left to fend for
themselves on the streets, where they are often subjected to cruelty, suffer
from starvation or diseases, or are hit by cars.
and cats may “sleep” with more mates “than is safe or reasonable”—but unlike
us, they can’t unwrap a condom. Will you help us provide this essential form of
birth control? Thank you for considering this.
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.
