Marc Maron, American stand-up comedian, podcast host and actor, has a new gig as a PETA ambassador. The outspoken comedian appears in an animated video for the animal welfare organization encouraging the spaying and neutering of companion animals.
Maron says your fur babies will live longer, healthier, happier lives because “you gave a sh*t” and had them spayed or neutered, saving countless animals lives by proxy.
Unfortunately, there are more animals in this country than there are forever homes for them to be loved in, so spaying and neutering can lessen the number of animals that are euthanized yearly. In a six year period, a female dog and her puppies can produce an astounding 67,000 puppies, and the number is even larger for a female cat and her kittens, producing a staggering 370,000 kittens in only seven years’ time.
Several areas in the U.S. have adopted mandatory spay or neuter laws, which has cut the number of euthanizations in those areas down significantly, but we still have a long way to go. If you are an animal owner, give a sh*t and have your pet spayed or neutered.
