Octomom Says ‘Yes’!

Published by PETA.

I guess it shouldn’t come as any surprise that “Octomom” Nadya Suleman has agreed to take us up on our offer to place this ad on her front lawn in exchange for a single payment of $5,000 and a month’s supply of veggie burgers and dogs to feed her supersized litter family.

After all, faced with the prospect of foreclosure, the single mom of 14 can surely relate to the plight of millions of homeless animals across the country.

The benefits of PETA’s offer to the struggling octobrood are obvious, but what’s in it for animals? Already, the ad has been run (for free) by CNN, NBC, AOL News, E! Online, USA Today, the New York Post, and dozens of other media outlets and blogs. So far, we’ve reached millions of people with the lifesaving spay-and-neuter message for less than a penny a person. Not a bad deal.

Regardless of her motivations for accepting our ad, wouldn’t you agree that reaching millions with the spay-neuter message right as “kitten season” is starting is perfect timing? And with Nadya’s entire family chowing down on veggie burgers and veggie dogs all month long, factory farmed animals’ lives have been spared.

“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
