Group Offers to Reimburse Marines for the Cost of Sterilizing the Cats Who Are Now Safe and Sound Stateside
For Immediate Release:July 15, 2010
Contact:Marcia Masulla 757-622-7382
Pearland, Texas -- For joining with two of his fellow Marines to rescue homeless cats in Afghanistan, sending one of the cats--Kiki--to safety at his Pearland home, and preventing the birth of more unwanted cats by having Kiki neutered, Cpl. Brian Chambers will receive a Compassionate Action Award from PETA.
The group has also offered to reimburse the Marines for the cost of sterilizing Kiki and his buddy KeyKey (who is now living at the home of Marine Lance Cpl. Chris Berry's parents in Davison, Mich.). The three Marines will each receive a framed certificate and a letter of appreciation from PETA for evacuating the kittens from a war-ravaged and unfriendly environment overseas. While stationed in Afghanistan, Chambers, Berry, and Lance Cpl. Aaron Shaw found several homeless cats, and the Marines fed, sheltered, and provided medical care for many of them.
"We salute Brian and his friends, who were deployed in a war zone thousands of miles from home and still made time to save animals who needed their help," says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. "War zones are a nightmare for animals, too, but thanks to these Marines, Kiki and KeyKey can look forward to a life filled with all the love, care, and security that they deserve."
Spaying one female cat can prevent thousands of births, and an unneutered male cat can create limitless litters of kittens. Approximately 8 million cats and dogs end up in animal shelters every year, and half of them must be euthanized for lack of a good home. Millions more never make it to animal shelters and must fend for themselves on the streets, where they are often subjected to abuse, suffer from starvation or disease, or are struck by cars.

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.
