In his interview with PETA, Artest talks about the importance of spaying and neutering and what he thinks about dogfighting. He also gives some great advice: “You can volunteer your time … just by going to walk the doggies [at your local animal shelter], ’cause they’re just happy to be around someone to touch them.”
On any given day in the United States, there are an estimated 70 million homeless dogs and cats struggling to survive. They are a result of people’s failure to spay and neuter their animal companions, allowing them to bring more animals into a world that already has more dogs and cats than there are loving homes for them.
PETA’s ABC campaign tackles the issue of companion animal overpopulation. The campaign urges people to do their part by taking simple steps to help end this crisis, particularly by always spaying and neutering their companion animals and by never buying animals from a pet store or a breeder.
Join Artest in being a part of the solution. Sign our pledge saying that you will never buy an animal from a pet store or a breeder again and that you will always practice your ABCs by having your companion animals spayed or neutered.
Artest launched this ad to support California’s latest bill to help animals, The Healthy Pets Act. This bill will ensure that all animal guardians follow their ABCs by having their companion animals spayed or neutered.
