Sometimes, in order to get an important point across, a little creativity goes a long way. The SPCA of San Francisco got pretty cheeky in order to promote the importance of spaying and neutering pets.
Visiting PetCondoms.org will take you to a goof website for canine/feline prophylactics. With little headers like, “Talk to Your Pet about Protection,” “Is Sparky a Sex Addict?” and “How to Put On a Pet Condom,” it’s good for a chuckle, but also quite an attention grabber. Click on any of those headers and you’ll receive the same pop-up message: “There’s only one real fix. Spay or neuter your pet.” The pop-up will also give you the phone number to the San Francisco SPCA clinic to schedule an appointment, and there’s also a badge to put on the Facebook wall of a pet parent who needs to schedule an appointment. You know, as a gentle-but-no-so-subtle reminder.
Spaying and neutering your pet helps reduce the number of homeless pets (which reduces the number of pets being euthanized in shelters), improves your pet’s health, and even helps limit aggressive behaviors. To learn more about spaying and neutering, refer to the Humane Society’s website.
