People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals will hold a demonstration Thursday featuring two members dressed as giant condoms to promote the spaying and neutering of pets.
The two will be dressed as one pink and one blue condom holding signs reading, “Dogs Can’t Use Condoms: Spay and Neuter!” and “Condoms Won’t Work: Fix Your Cat!”
They will be at the corner of Monroe and McDonough streets starting at noon handing out leaflets on animal birth control.
“If cats and dogs could wear condoms, millions of animals would be spared from suffering and death. But they can’t — so it’s up to their guardians to take responsibility for spaying and neutering.” PETA campaigner Virginia Fort said in a statement.
