Can a Bus Save a Dog's Life?

| by PETA

One Greyhound bus takes an average of 19 cars off the road. Pretty impressive. But just one spay surgery can prevent 67,000 puppies  from being born—the number of puppies whom a female dog and her generations of offspring can produce in just six years. Really impressive.

We've requested a meeting with Grey … er … Spayhound's CEO, and maybe someday soon, you'll be able to hop a ride to Fixburg, Mississippi, or Spaykane, Washington. Meanwhile, whether you have a greyhound or a guess-the-hound, please make sure they get their fix.
