Sia encourages desexing of dogs and cats in new PETA ad

Sia (and Pantera) for PETA

Isn’t that puppy adorable?! We all love a nice fluffy puppy, but fact is too many of them end up homeless. Australian songbird Sia Furler has teamed up with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) for a feisty new ad urging animal lovers to make sure that dogs and cats aren’t born only to end up homeless. The ad features Furler and her puppy, Pantera, playfully showing their teeth alongside the words “Take a Bite Out of Animal Overpopulation: Desex Your Dog”.

The ad is part of PETA’s Animal Birth Control campaign. Not only does desexing prevent dogs from having “oops” litters, it also reduces their risk of developing cancer. In six years, one unfixed dog and her offspring can produce 60,000 puppies. Every year, countless dogs and cats are dumped at severely crowded animal shelters, where many of them must be euthanised. The less fortunate ones never even make it to a safe haven – they are left to fend for themselves on the streets, where they often suffer from cruelty, starvation, diseases or injuries.

PETA advises prospective guardians to adopt cats and dogs from animal shelters – never to buy them from pet shops or breeders – and to spay or neuter animal companions as soon as they are old enough.
