Ron Artest's Spay Day Slam Dunk!
My favorite part of playing basketball, or any sport, is getting the opportunity to be competitive, and yeah I’m ‘that guy’ that’s always talking trash on the court. I think its okay to talk trash since my nasty crossover snaps ankles left and right, not literally, and my jump-shot breaks hearts on every court I step on. If I were to compare myself to any active NBA player, I think I would go with NBA All-Star and Los Angeles Lakers forward, Ron Artest. Okay, so he’s a lot better than I am but we do have something in common; we both aren’t afraid to speak up for animals!
Spay Day is coming up on February 23, and Artest will reveal his new spay-and-neuter billboard today in L.A. at 8238 Beverly Blvd. (near Sweetzer Avenue). The first 20 people to arrive will receive coupons for free spay or neuter surgeries provided by the Sam Simon Foundation—a Los Angeles-area organization that runs a mobile clinic providing free spay and neuter surgeries and low-cost veterinary services.
If you have companion animals, please be sure to get ’em fixed. If you’re considering sharing your life and home with an animal, remember that it’s a lot of responsibility, so really think about it before you decide. Please don’t buy from any pet store or breeder, especially since millions of dogs and cats are waiting in animal shelters for a family to take them home. Is your companion animal fixed?
