San Francisco SPCA Offering Pet Condoms to Sex-Addicted Dogs and Cats

That's exactly what the SPCA is hoping will happen by advertising pet condoms on its website. Appropriately dubbed "Animal Instinct," the new pet condom is about as real as that dog who drove through the streets of San Francisco.

But the campaign is for real. In its latest effort to call attention to the need for pet owners to spay and neuter their horny dogs and cats, the SPCA launched a new website which advertises pet condoms, encouraging owners to "put it on before they get it on."

But once you click on the many services the new site offers, including advice on how to deal with a cat who is on the prowl (for sex), the joke is up, and a pop-up is displayed that reads the following:

"C'mon. There's only one real fix. Spay or Neuter Your Pet. Make An Appointment Now (415) 554-3030."

Here's a little more about the zany campaign.

Krista Maloney, spokeswoman for the SPCA, says the campaign started in late September when SPCA staff went to Dolores Park and handed out the faux condoms to pet parents which contained, not rubbers, but information about spay and neutering.

We're still awaiting comment from the Catholic Church.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
