PETA U.K. Offers ‘Fixing’ Deal to Pakistani Cricket Players

Posted on by Ashley Fruno

After living in Mumbia for a few years to help set up PETA India, not only did I get a chance to learn all about the wonderful game of cricket, I also became a huge fan! I was pretty bummed when reports came out that several Pakistani players are being questioned by the cops for rigging certain parts of the game—so-called “spot-fixing.”

LONDON - SEPTEMBER 02: Pakistan cricketer Mohammad Amir leaves the High Commission by a side door on September 2, 2010 in London, England. After a meeting Pakistan High Commissioner Wajid Shamsul Hasan told reporters that the players allegedly involved in a betting scandal have voluntarily offered not to be included in the remaining cricket tour of Great Britain, he also said that they wanted to clear their names first.

In hopes that these guys will bring back good vibes to their fans—and teammates!—PETA U.K. has invited them to star in an ad promoting a different kind of “fixing”—the spaying and neutering of cats and dogs!

Because there aren’t enough good homes to go around and people continue to buy animals from breeders and pet shops, millions of dogs and cats all over the world languish in animal shelters or are euthanised every year. Countless others, including many in Pakistan, struggle to survive day to day on the harsh streets. “Fixing” dogs and cats by having them spayed or neutered is the key to ending this suffering.

Have you fixed your dog or cat? Take a stand against cruelty to animals by taking our pledge to spay or neuter your animal companion today! And remember, “no balls” may be a bad thing in cricket, but for dogs and cats, “no balls” is a lifesaver!
