In impoverished areas of the Philippines, homeless and neglected cats and dogs are a common sight. They’re left to scrounge for scraps of food and clean drinking water just to survive. Dogs and cats who have guardians also roam freely. On our visits to these areas, we often find dead puppies and kittens as well as still-living newborn animals discarded in the trash.
Most residents cannot afford even basic veterinary care, including spaying and neutering, and the animal population is spiraling out of control. But PETA’s Kapon/Ligation Immediately, Please (KLIP) program is changing that. Since it started, we’ve spayed or neutered and vaccinated over 800 cats and dogs living in impoverished neighborhoods of Metro Manila. We transport animals to veterinarians for surgery and then return them to their grateful families. We also treat them for aliments such as mange, parasite infestations, and other health problems—all at no cost to their guardians.
But we need your help to reach more animals!
Will you make a generous donation to support PETA’s life-changing work for companion animals in the Philippines?
One dog, named Reddick, was virtually bald because of sarcoptic mange, but within a few months of being treated, neutered, and vaccinated, his coat had grown back, and he’s now happy and healthy.

You have a special chance to help stop animals’ suffering. PETA is planning to spay and neuter more animals in need. This will prevent litter after litter of kittens or puppies from being born into lives of neglect and heartbreaking misery.
Sterilized animals also live longer, happier lives. Spaying eliminates the risk of developing uterine cancer and greatly reduces that of developing mammary cancer. Neutering makes males far less likely to roam or fight, prevents testicular cancer, and reduces the risk of developing prostate cancer. Altered animals are also less likely to contract deadly, contagious diseases that are spread through bodily fluids, such as feline AIDS and feline leukemia.
Please support PETA’s vital work to stop the overpopulation crisis—by giving right now.
