Kevin Nealon Helps Out With PETAs SNIPmobile

first_imgBetween his performances at the Funny Bone in Virginia Beach last weekend, Saturday Night Live alum Kevin Nealon hit the parking lot of PETA’s Norfolk headquarters, posing for photos, cracking jokes, and greeting families who brought dogs and cats to the group’s “SNIPmobile” clinic, which offers low- to no-cost sterilization and other veterinary services.Kevin Nealon At PETA’s Spay and Neuter ClinicCredit/Copyright: PETA“Nobody would trust me to neuter their dog, and nobody should — so it’s a good thing that PETA’s got veterinarians to do it,” says Nealon. “It’s not rocket science: Every homeless puppy and kitten was born to parents who weren’t spayed or neutered. I’m proud to support PETA’s work to prevent animal homelessness.”“Kevin is always willing to lend a hand to help animals, and that includes taking time out to spread the word that a ‘snip’ in time saves nine—or 9,000,” says PETA Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch. “The way to fix the homeless animal overpopulation crisis is by ‘fixing’ dogs and cats, and PETA’s SNIP clinics do the job.”Six to 8 million homeless dogs and cats end up in animal shelters every year, and half of them must be euthanized because there simply aren’t enough good homes for them. Others never make it to a safe haven and are abandoned to fend for themselves on the streets. The only effective, long-term solution is spaying and neutering—and PETA’s mobile clinics have “fixed” nearly 94,000 animals in just the last decade.For more photos from the event, click here.last_img read more
