The last PETA campaign PETA’s ABC Campaign points to the importance of spay or neuter. The ABC (Animal Birth Control) tackles the issue of companion animal overpopulation and urges people to do their part by taking simple steps to help end this crisis.
To spread the mesage, the burlesque dancer, model and actress Dita Von Teese joined to launch PETA’s new ABC campaign. There is no doubt about Dita Von Teese’s Sexy ABC Ad (picture above), being sexy and catching our attention.
Dita knows her ABCs and just how important animal birth control is. Every year, nearly 4 million dogs and cats are put to death in the U.S. because there are not enough good homes for them. Until we all do our part to put an end to this cycle, euthanasia will remain a tragic necessity.
In her ad, Dita urges fans to “bone up” on their ABCs and, if they are considering adding a dog or a cat to the family, to adopt from a local animal shelter and be sure to get their new family member spayed or neutered.
I’m supporting this campaign, because I believe on its importance. All my (three) cats are neutered (and spayed) and never had any problems with that. They are healthy and happy. My youngest furry guy, Truffaut, was found meowing in the garage of my building sick and starved. I don’t believe in buying animals when there are thousands of those poor animals living on the streets of São Paulo. And if I can help, even with small actions like those, I will. I hope you do the same.
