Just in time for the release of her fifth studio album, We Are Born, Australian songbird Sia and her dog Pantera have teamed up with PETA Australia for this feisty new ad urging animal lovers to make sure that dogs and cats aren’t born only to end up homeless.
Why are Sia and Pantera growling about desexing? Not only does desexing (also known as “spaying and neutering” in Asia) prevent dogs from having “oops” litters, it also reduces or eliminates their risk of developing certain types of cancer. Every year, countless dogs and cats are dumped at severely crowded animal shelters, where many of them must be euthanised. The less fortunate ones never even make it to a safe haven – they are left to fend for themselves on the streets, where they often suffer from cruelty, starvation, diseases or injuries.
Sia – who is also a vegetarian – won Best Music DVD at the 2009 ARIA Awards, and her album Some People Have Real Problems was nominated for Best Breakthrough Artist Album. Her two rescued canine companions accompany her on tour, and she even arranges her travel schedule around their walks.
Want to join Sia in taking a bite out of animal homelessness? It’s as easy as A-B-C. Animal birth control, that is! Pledge to desex your dog (or cat or rabbit!) today!
