‘Giant Condoms’ Condemn Animal Homelessness

Published by PETA.



There was no containing this prophylactic pair yesterday in Shreveport, Louisiana. The “giant condoms” were determined to let passersby know that the only way to save the more than 6 million unwanted cats and dogs who end up in U.S. animal shelters every year—half of whom are euthanized because there simply aren’t enough good homes for them—is to spay or neuter their companion animals. Spaying one female dog can prevent 67,000 births in six years, and spaying one female cat can prevent 420,000 births in seven years.

Since cats and dogs can’t wear condoms, it’s up to their guardians to curb the overpopulation crisis.
