Cloris Leachman Calls for Safe Sex–for Dogs and Cats

Condoms are completely useless—if you’re a dog or a cat. That’s why legendary actor Cloris Leachman is speaking up for animals in her PSA for PETA and asking all companion animal guardians to make sure that their animals are spayed or neutered.

A female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in six years. Just one unaltered female cat can lead to 370,000 feline descendants in only seven years! Dogs and cats may not be able to add, but they sure can multiply!

Up to 8 million dogs and cats are surrendered to animal shelters each year in the U.S., and half of them must be euthanized for lack of good homes. The only way to become a “no-kill” nation is to first become a “no-birth” one. By making sure that your companion animal is spayed or neutered, you can personally help to curb the dog and cat overpopulation crisis.

Join Cloris in working toward a “no-birth” nation and make the pledge.
