This week is the 83rd annual National Dog Week,
and to celebrate, we’re showcasing some of the wonderful dogs (and a few cats) PETA has helped
recently with our mobile spay-and-neuter clinics.

One such dog is Bentley, a charming white
ball of fluff whose guardian does not drive and lives in a rural county where
there is no veterinary clinic. If not for PETA’s SNIP
, Bentley likely would not have been neutered and may have contributed to
the animal homelessness

PETA’s fleet of spay-and-neuter clinics
provides free and low-cost sterilization surgeries in southeast Virginia and
northeast North Carolina. So far this year, clinic workers have spayed and
neutered more than 7,500 animals and provided round-trip, door-to-door transportation
(often to remote residences) to more than 400 animals, free of charge. Nobody
is ever turned away because of financial reasons.

Please consider helping PETA continue to
offer free and low-cost sterilizations by making an ear-marked donation to our animal overpopulation fund. If you cannot
give at this time, consider volunteering at a local spay-and-neuter clinic or
offering to drive an animal whose guardian is without transportation to a
surgical appointment.
