Glee Star Appears in Group's TV Spot, Urges Hometown Mayor to 'Fix' Animals in Chicago

Chicago -- Jane Lynch, who is known for playing opinionated Cheerios coach Sue Sylvester on the hit television show Glee, stars in a quirky new campaign for peta2, the world's largest youth animal rights organization. In the ad, Lynch shows some tough love to people who haven't spayed or neutered their dogs and cats.
"The good folks at PETA asked me to say a few words about the importance of good posture and personal hygiene--but I don't want to talk about that," says Lynch in the TV spot. "I want to talk about the 4 million dogs and cats who are euthanized every year because there aren't enough homes for all of them." Lynch goes on to explain that the best way to fix the animal overpopulation problem is for people to "fix" their cats and dogs.
Lynch also sat down for an exclusive peta2 interview in which she spoke earnestly about the impact that dogs and cats have had in her own life. "Having dogs and cats who I love so thoroughly has made me a better partner, has made me a better friend," she says. "And the love is so unconditional from the animals ... you start to transfer that to human beings. I've just become a much better person because of my love for animals."
Lynch also wrote a letter on PETA's behalf to Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, urging him to support a law that would require dogs and cats in her native Chicago to be spayed or neutered. The animal overpopulation crisis has prompted similar laws in Houston, Denver, New York, and Lynch's current hometown, Los Angeles.
Lynch joins a long list of celebrities--including Kellan Lutz, Audrina Patridge, Lea Michele, and Pink--who have partnered with peta2 to speak up for animals.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
