Norfolk, Va. – In celebration of “No-Fathers” Day, PETA’s mobile clinics will offer free neuter surgeries for male cats throughout the months of May and June.

When:    May 1 to June 30 (Appointments are required and can be made by calling PETA at 757-622-PETA (7382), extension 3, or by visiting PETA.org/SpayNeuter.)

Where:    Boykins, Chesapeake, Emporia, Franklin, Hopewell, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Suffolk

“Responsible guardians can prevent their companion cats from contributing to the homeless-animal overpopulation crisis by taking advantage of PETA’s complimentary springtime special,” says PETA Senior Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch. “For every one who gets ‘snipped’ this season, countless more won’t be born into a world already bursting at the seams with unwanted cats.”

Every year, more than 6 million dogs and cats end up in animal shelters across the U.S., and half of them must be euthanized because there aren’t enough good homes for them. The solution is simple: spaying and neutering. Since 2001, PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—has performed low-cost spay and neuter surgeries for more than 154,000 dogs, cats, and rabbits, including more than 13,300 in 2017.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
