PETA supporters dressed as giant pink and blue condoms will hold signs proclaiming, “Condoms Won’t Work: Fix Your Cat” and “Dogs Can’t Use Condoms—Spay/Neuter,” as they dance around and hand out leaflets on animal sterilization in Indianapolis on Thursday.

When:             Thursday, May 5, 12 p.m.

Where:           The intersection of Washington and Illinois streets, Indianapolis

“Just one female cat and her offspring can produce a staggering 370,000 kittens in seven years,” says PETA Senior Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch. “Dogs and cats can’t wear condoms, so PETA is calling on their guardians to take responsibility and spay or neuter their animal companions.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—notes that more than 6 million unwanted cats and dogs enter U.S. animal shelters every year, and roughly half are euthanized because there aren’t enough good homes for them. The best conceivable solutions are to spay or neuter animal companions—and never buy them from a breeder or a pet store.
