La Habra, Calif. -- In light of recent reports that Nadya "Octomom" Suleman may be facing foreclosure on her home, PETA is offering to bolster her finances by paying to place an ad on her front lawn reading, "Don’t let your dog or cat become an 'octomom': Always spay or neuter. PETA."
PETA hopes to call attention to a very serious problem: the dog and cat overpopulation crisis. Every year, 6 to 8 million animals enter animal shelters, and roughly half of them are euthanized because of a lack of good homes.

Dear Ms. Suleman,
I am writing on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and our more than 2 million members and supporters, including thousands across Southern California. In light of recent reports that you may be facing foreclosure on your home, we'd like to offer to bolster your finances by paying to place an ad (enclosed) on your front lawn. The ad would read, "Don't let your dog or cat become an 'octomom.' Always spay or neuter. PETA."
When you gave birth to octuplets to bring your total number of children to 14, you grabbed headlines and got the world talking about your controversial decision. Now will you help turn some of that attention to another important matter--the dog and cat overpopulation crisis? Every year, 6 to 8 million animals are turned over to animal shelters, and roughly half of them are euthanized because of the lack of good homes. Thousands of other unwanted dogs and cats live on the streets, where they often fall victim to cars, abuse from unkind people, attacks by other animals, disease, or starvation. Much of this suffering can be prevented by simply spaying and neutering.
Unlike humans, dogs and cats cannot decide for themselves how many offspring they will have. Spaying or neutering just one animal can, in the long term, prevent the births of thousands of animals in a world that has far too few good homes to go around.
Taking us up on our offer is a win-win situation: It would help you and your children to keep your home and also reduce the number of homeless dogs and cats. Thank you for your consideration.
Sincerely,Michelle ChoSpecial Projects Manager
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.
