Fight cruelty. Save lives! Your gift makes a kinder world for animals through undercover investigations, rescues, humane education, spay/neuter, and high-profile advocacy campaigns.
Spaying and neutering makes a big difference: Just one unaltered female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in only six years. In seven years, one female cat and her offspring can produce an incredible 370,000 kittens!
Thanks to your support, our fleet of mobile clinics has performed over 137,000 spay-and-neuter surgeries since it began operating in 2001. Spaying and neutering prevents cats and dogs from being born into a world that is already teeming with discarded animals. These unwanted animals would likely be dumped on the streets or would have to be euthanized in shelters. Thank you for helping PETA spare millions of animals a life of suffering. And we're not going to rest on our laurels: spay-and-neuter marathons and special events are held multiple times each year throughout Southeastern Virginia, in addition to our mobile fleet working daily. We're now working toward our 200,000th lifesaving surgery.
