English comedian and television personality Alan Carr rocks a pair of pink fairy wings, a wand and a smile in a new PETA campaign to promote spaying and neutering, declaring ‘Be a little fairy for the animals’.
The ‘Chatty Man’ talk show host is concerned about animal overpopulation in the United Kingdom. He says, “There’s no ‘magic wand’ that will find homes for all of Britain’s homeless dogs and cats, but simple surgeries – spaying and neutering – will make a huge difference in the long run. We’ve got to get to the root of the problem, and that’s all the puppies and kittens that are being born into an overpopulated world.”
The funny man goes on to say, “Many thousands of dogs, cats and other companion animals in this country are abandoned. Some are left on the streets to starve to death, be injured or killed by vehicles, fall prey to abuse or suffer from sickness or disease. Others may be left to languish in animal shelters, waiting day after day to be adopted by a loving family.” Often, these animals are euthanized because of a lack of good homes, and spaying or neutering just one animal can save thousands of future lives.
Carr says tackling the crisis of unwanted animals in the UK seems like a daunting task, but he urges you to do your part by spaying or neutering your companion animals.
