San Antonio – To mark National Sex Day—and because San Antonio is facing a crisis of stray dogs and homeless companion animals—dancing PETA supporters in condom costumes will gather at a busy intersection in the city to hand out free vegan condoms, donated by GLYDE and UNION (which are PETA-approved cruelty-free), to passersby along with a reminder for everyone to brush up on the ABCs of animal birth control.

When:    Friday, June 9, 12 noon

Where:    At the intersection of Blum Street and Alamo Plaza, San Antonio 

PETA’s reveling rubbers will encourage people to take spaying and neutering their animal companions as seriously as they take their own methods of birth control, noting that these routine, affordable animal surgeries make all the difference in combating the homeless-animal overpopulation crisis. Just one female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in only six years, and in seven years, one female cat and her offspring can produce an astounding 370,000 kittens.

“Spaying and neutering is key to keeping scores more cats and dogs from being born into a world already bursting at the seams with homeless animals,” says PETA Senior Vice President Colleen O’Brien. “PETA is heading to Alamo City to encourage everyone to practice safe sex—and ensure that Fido and Fifi are protected from unwanted pregnancies as well.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.

“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
