How We Spent Our Halloween …

Published by PETA.

We hope you all had a happy and safe Halloween! Yeah, we saw you rockin’ those Trollsen and Colonel masks! We were knee-deep in mischief ourselves, but don’t worry, it was all treat and no trick. PETA’s “Spay and Neuter Immediately Please!” mobile clinic (aka the SNIP-mobile) spent the whole spooky day spaying and neutering dozens of black cats from the Hampton Roads area. So gosh darn cute! Yes, even witches know that cats need to be altered to live full and hauntingly happy lives.

On hand was our VIP 8-year-old PETA Kids representative, Skyler, who happily donned a black kitty costume and handed out treats to all.



A big nod goes out to the staff members aboard the mobile clinic who over the years have done an awesome job preventing the births of hundreds of thousands of unwanted kittens. It’s a truly frightening statistic that one unspayed female cat can produce 36 cats in just one and a half years!

Thank you, thank you, SNIP crew! You’re all wonderful!
