Tonight on NBC, the cocktails will flow and the bunny tails will wiggle as the network debuts The Playboy Club, a period drama about the “living, breathing fantasy world” which stars vegan PETA celebrity supporters Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Leah Renee. But bunnies (Playboy and otherwise) aren’t the only ones with rampant sex drives—for unaltered dogs and cats living in the “playboy club” of the streets, life is anything but a fantasy. That’s why we’ve asked NBC to air our frisky “Sex and the Kitty” public service announcement during the show—to give viewers a good laugh while showing them that spaying and neutering saves lives.
One unaltered female cat and her offspring can produce a whopping 420,000 cats in just seven years. The result is more animals added to the millions that are already homeless. Animals left to fend for themselves on the streets often suffer from lingering and painful diseases, starvation, exposure, or neglect or are hit by cars, attacked by other animals or cruel people, stolen by laboratory dealers, or used as bait by dogfighters.
Ending the animal homelessness crisis is everyone’s responsibility. The solution is easy and practical: spay and neuter all companion animals.
