Giant ‘Condom’ Promotes Animal Birth Control in Run-Up to National Condom Day

Posted by 5 years ago | Permalink | Comments (5)

With a sign that read, “Dogs Can’t Use Condoms: Spay and Neuter”, a PETA member dressed as a giant pink condom descended on Newcastle in advance of National Condom Day (14 February) to point out that Tyne Tees has England’s largest population of stray dogs per person and that the only way to get a handle on the cat and dog overpopulation crisis is always to have companion animals spayed or neutered.

“If cats and dogs could wear condoms, millions of animals would be saved from suffering and death”, says PETA Senior Programme Manager Yvonne Taylor. “But they can’t – so it’s up to their guardians to take responsibility for spaying and neutering.”

Hundreds of thousands of unwanted cats and dogs enter animal shelters every year in the UK, and many of them are euthanised because there simply aren’t enough good homes for them. Millions more never make it to an animal shelter and are left to fend for themselves on the streets, where they often are subjected to cruelty, are struck by cars or suffer from starvation, disease or injuries. The solution is simple: always spay or neuter your animal companions. Spaying one female dog can prevent 67,000 births in six years, and spaying one female cat can prevent 420,000 births in seven years. Help end the animal-homelessness problem.

    We need condoms for humans, spaying and neutering for dogs and cats and contracepives in tasty food for rats, mice and other misunderstood creatures that overpopulate.

    So cutting an animals balls off is being caring but eating them for sustenance is evil?
