If you rode past the corner of Cherry and Third streets in Macon on Monday, you probably saw two eye-catching objects.  

The PETA Organization used two, giant condoms to represent spay and neutering for dogs and cats.

The campaign, also called PETA's Condoms, is nationwide in efforts to keep animals from being euthanized in shelters due to overpopulation.

Why condoms you ask? According to Katie Arth, the Campaign Manager for PETA, condoms are a "fun and unique" way to get people's attention and draw them in to learn more about the over population of dogs and cats.

"For the millions who need birth control the most, they cant even open a condom wrapper." says Arth. "We have these giant condoms here because dogs and cats can't choose to use birth control like we can. That's why it's up to us to always spay and neuter to prevent more unwanted animals from being born and then dumped into our local shelters that are already overcrowded."

The Green and Yellow condoms along with two PETA representatives, waved to people passing by and also gave out flyers with more information on them.
