Curbing the Homeless Dog and Cat Crisis in Cancún, Mexico (August 6, 2021) Earlier this year, with the help of the city government, we sponsored a hugely popular, free spay/neuter event, sterilizing 136 dogs and 64 cats in just two days—and now we’re back to help again. The municipal animal shelter, Dirección de Protección y Bienestar Animal—along with the support of a PETA representative—held two smaller clinics in Cancún that provided 120 more cats and dogs with spay/neuter procedures, all free of charge.

Preparing for Another Eruption (July 9, 2021) The Taal volcano in the Philippines became active again last week, prompting fears that another massive eruption could soon be threatening animals. Some villages in lakeside communities are being evacuated, and PETA Asia is working to ensure that animals in affected areas have access to food at evacuation centers. The team is also making sure that residents know they can turn to them if they see any animals who are abandoned or in distress should the crisis worsen.
