Jan Cameron is a favorite over here at PETA Asia-Pacific. We’ve blogged about her and the great work that she’s done for animals before. Now she’s at it again!
This time, she’s putting part of her wealth into helping end the companion-animal overpopulation crisis in Australia. She is now privately funding a national network of companion animal desexing centers that will help people from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds get their animals desexed.
Getting your animal desexed is a necessary part of caring for your furry friend. It helps to reduce companion-animal overpopulation, which, in Australia, is now causing more than 29 percent of dogs and 59 percent of cats in animal shelters to be euthanized. Desexing also helps to reduce the occurrences of many illnesses among companion animals, such as uterine, mammary, and testicular cancer.
