Patricia Arquette is the latest celebrity to lend her name a PETA campaign, urging pet-owners to ALWAYS spay and neuter their animals. In the new ad, Arquette poses beside the tagline “Envision a World With No Homeless Dogs or Cats.”
She says, “Half a million dogs and cats are put down in California every year—[one] every three seconds… I had heard over the years people say, “I don’t want to spay them before they have a chance to have babies.” There are half a million animals in our own state who are killed every year just because people want to have that experience.”
Arquette is also outspoken on the issue of fur and says, “I don’t like fur… My mom had a [fur] jacket from the 50′s … But the concept of buying fur today doesn’t make any sense to me. I’ve seen people in fur coats, and in my wild mind, I’m hoping someone will throw red paint on them!”
So remember, if you’re thinking of adding a cuddly, snuggly so-and-so to your family, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS adopt from a shelter and make sure your animals are spayed and neutered. Let’s help create a world where no animal goes homeless!
