Sitting in a sunny park adorned with angel wings and hugging her dog, Paloma, Spectre and Narcos star Stephanie Sigman appears in a new PETA Latino ad that proclaims, “Be an Angel for Animals. Always Spay or Neuter.”
“Beautiful, lovable dogs just like my Paloma end up in animal shelters by the millions every year,” says Sigman. “PETA and I urge everyone to spay or neuter because every ‘fixed’ dog prevents countless puppies from being born into a world already filled with homeless animals.”
PETA Latino — whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way” — notes that more than 6 million unwanted dogs and cats enter animal shelters every year in the U.S., and roughly half of them have to be euthanized because there simply aren’t enough good homes. Countless more suffer on the streets throughout the U.S. and Latin America.
Prevention through spaying and neutering is the best way to combat the homeless-animal overpopulation crisis — plus, sterilized animals live longer and happier lives, are less likely to develop cancer of the reproductive system, and are less prone to roaming, fighting, and contracting deadly contagious diseases.
In addition to her recent roles in the Netflix series Narcos and as a “Bond girl” in Spectre, Sigman will next appear in the hotly anticipated CBS series S.W.A.T. She joins a long list of celebrities — including George Lopez, Eva Mendes, Aislinn Derbez, Alfonso Herrera, and Kate del Castillo — who have teamed up with PETA Latino to promote kindness to animals.
