Each month, PETA's mobile spay-and-neuter clinics alter
many hundreds of animals, preventing hundreds of thousands of unwanted ones from
being born. Every animal we help has a story. Here are a few of the many patients
who made it a September
Frieda's guardian is 80 years old, but
his love for his dog keeps him young at heart. He was thrilled that we could
spay Frieda and even give her a ride to and from our clinic.
Blue isn't blue anymore. This beautiful
pit bull, who lives indoors with her guardian, had sustained an eye injury.
Blue's guardian had planned to breed her, but since she didn't have the money
to treat Blue's injury, she agreed to let us spay the pup if we would treat her
eye. Now Blue is pain-free and litter-free.
RJ is a bouncy, happy pup. We
transported this young 80-pound ball of energy to our clinic, and now we are happy that he is not contributing to the animal-homelessness
Cotton wasn't a big fan of being driven
to our clinic and getting her free spay surgery, so this feisty kitten was super-happy
to get back into her guardian's waiting arms.
Magic is feeling a lot more magical
after PETA gave him a lift to our clinic, a flea bath and flea medicine, and a
little "snip" surgery.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
