While PETA has often been criticized on Bilerico for their sexist, transphobic or fatphobic advertising stunts, I still like to lift up some of their PR campaigns just for the sheer originality of their ideas. They use sex to sell animal rights - a smart move in our culture. Sometimes though, the unintentional can be as amusing as the ad itself. Take the recent ad I promoted last week of NFL star Chad Ochocinco naked to warn against buying furs - even though he's hiding his junk behind a pigskin football.
This latest ad though, featuring the Pope's new stance on condom usage juxtaposed against the pet overpopulation problem, hits the nail on the head.
Simply stated: It's sinful that millions of dogs and cats are killed every year in animal shelters simply because there aren't enough homes for all of them--and that millions more are abandoned on the streets, where they starve, die of untreated injuries or illnesses, or fall prey to animal abusers. The simple solution is to always spay and neuter animals instead of allowing them to produce countless offspring. Please help us bring salvation to dogs and cats by singing the praises of spaying and neutering to everyone you know.
