Glee Star and Illinois Native Launches PETA TV Campaign

Chicago -- Glee's Jane Lynch, who stars in a new PETA commercial urging people to "fix" their animal companions, has appealed to Mayor Daley 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.
"Every year Chicago's animal shelters are forced to euthanize thousands of unwanted dogs and cats simply because there aren't enough good homes for them all," writes Lynch to Mayor Daley. "Countless other animals starve, are killed by vehicles, or are abused by cruel people on the streets." Lynch goes on to say that the only way to lower the rate of animal births "is through legislation that imposes some basic requirements on people who wish to breed animals for sale" and that such legislation "would also save taxpayers precious funds that are currently spent on picking up, sheltering, and euthanizing the city's unwanted and unadopted animals."
Lynch's new national TV spot for PETA reflects the quirky humor of her character on Glee and can be viewed here. The Oscar-nominated actor also sat down for a candid video interview for PETA.org. "Having dogs and cats who I love so thoroughly has made me a better partner, has made me a better friend, has made me a better person," Lynch 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."
