REMINDER: PETA’S ‘COFFEE FOR CATS’ EVENT IS TOMORROW FOR INTERNATIONAL CAT DAY

Proceeds From the Sales of Nondairy Drinks at Participating Cafés Will Help ‘Fix’ Companion-Animal Homelessness and Overpopulation

For Immediate Release:
August 7, 2019

Manila — To celebrate International Cat Day (August 8) tomorrow, PETA is teaming up with cafés around the metro area for “Coffee for Cats,” an event in which a portion of the sales of specialized nondairy coffee drinks will go directly toward supporting the group’s Kapon/Ligation Immediately, Please (KLIP) spay/neuter program.

Participating cafés include the following:

Since its inception in 2015, KLIP has sterilized and vaccinated more than 1,000 cats and dogs living in impoverished areas of Metro Manila for free. KLIP staffers transport animals to veterinarians for surgery and treat them for health problems—all at no cost to their guardians.

The single most important thing that we can do to help spare cats and dogs the suffering and death that they endure because of overpopulation is to sterilize them. Spaying and neutering are routine surgeries that can prevent thousands of animals from being born only to struggle to survive on the streets, be abused by cruel or neglectful people, or be euthanized in city pounds for lack of enough loving homes.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETAAsia.com.
