Catch a Tax Break With a New PETA Proposal

Published by PETA.

Taxes on your mind with Tax Day approaching? Well, soon you may get a break if you help give a break to the millions of homeless dogs and cats who suffer as a result of the animal overpopulation crisis. We’re asking Rep. Sandy Levin, D-Mich., Chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, to introduce a bill that would give a tax credit to citizens who spay or neuter their animal companions.

A recent survey reveals that one of the main obstacles to spaying and neutering is the cost. Providing a tax credit to reimburse Americans who fight the taxing reality of animal homelessness would take away that excuse, while stimulating the economy and helping cut cities’ and counties’ animal control expenses. Will Spay Day soon become Pay Day? We hope so. In the meantime, don’t wait another minute to spay or neuter your animal companions if you haven’t already—and urge everyone you know to do the same.
