Dallas “Dallas is going through a stray dog crisis, the shelters are overcrowded. So today PETA sent a letter to Dallas Parks and Recreation Director John Jenkins asking to advertise in dog parks throughout the city, encouraging people to do their part by neutering their puppies. The Panel notes that in this way Jenkins could feed two birds with one cake: It will help fight the pet crisis. as well as Make Big D locals laugh before Father’s Day.
“Dogs can’t use condoms, so we should stop them from having litter after litter of puppies,” says Daphne Nachminovich, PETA’s senior vice president of cruelty to investigate. “PETA’s ad states that for every dog neutered, countless others will not be born in a world already teeming with homelessness.”
PETA also ran ads on benches and buses in Corpus Christi and on the Charlotte, North Carolina interstate. Dallas dog parks include Bark Park Central, White Rock Lake, Waging Tail and North Bark.
PETA, whose motto is in part that “animals are not in our hands to be abused in any way,” is opposed to arrogance, a worldview focused on human superiority. For more information please visit PETA.org or subscribe to the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram…
This is followed by PETA’s letter to Jenkins.

Dear Mr. Jenkins:
I am writing on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and our 6.5 million members and supporters around the world, including many thousands across Texas, ahead of Father’s Day, to address overcrowding. pets and homelessness. crisis across the state. To help fight dog homelessness, could you please place our “Don’t Let Your Dog Be a Naughty Daddy — Castrate It Today” ad in and around Bark Park Central, White Rock Lake, Waging Tail and Dog Parks North Bark?
Animal shelters must euthanize millions of wonderful, dignified dogs and cats every year due to neglect, abuse, abandonment and the lack of good homes. Countless other animals do not even end up in shelters and are forced to fight to survive on the streets, where many starve, die from untreated injuries and diseases, fall under cars or become victims of animal cruelty.
Average litter size in dogs ranges from one to 12 puppies, and some larger breeds can have up to 15 puppies per litter. A male that is not neutered can potentially mate with any unpaid bitch he comes in contact with, so the number of puppies a male can produce is limitless. Since animal shelters already host more than 6 million animals annually, it is imperative that every effort be made to reduce the number of stray animals.
We look forward to partnering with you to promote animal birth control in Dallas. I will gladly send you as many posters as you like. Thank you for your attention, I am looking forward to your reply.
