Spring is in full swing, thank goodness! I am totally over cold weather and apparently so are all the wildlife around here, they’re um, well, they’re downright frisky. That’s what happens when Spring rolls around, which makes it the perfect time to talk about spaying and neutering, and our brand new ABC (Animal Birth Control) ad starring Vanessa Carlton and her handsome canine companion, Victor.

I have to say that ad is pretty darn cute. And Victor is adorable! Vanessa and Victor want everyone to practice their ABC’s because that’s the best way to end animal homelessness. “The most well-adjusted and emotionally balanced dogs and cats are the mixed breeds found in shelters,” says Carlton.

Vanessa joins NBA star Ron Artest and burlesque queen, Dita Von Teese in supporting our ABC campaign because they want you to know that millions of animals are euthanized in shelters every year because there aren’t enough good homes for them. And when you buy a dog or a cat from a breeder or a pet store, it kills a shelter animal’s chance for adoption.

Adds Carlton, “Bottom line: Always go to a shelter first. Personally, I think spaying and neutering should be an enforced law.” We agree! Thanks to our friends at CosmoGirl.com who are helping us launch the ad!

    We’ve finally saved up and we’ll be practising our ABC’s in May with our adopted dog Tess!
    My favourite ABC advert is the video “Buy One, Kill One Free” because it really hits home the message that you need to adopt a rescue and not buy from a breeder.

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
