Nadya Suleman - of Octomom fame - posted a festive banner outside her Southern California home this week with a headline caption which screamed out:
"Don't Let Your Dog or Cat Become an Octomom."
How to accompish that end?
Always spay or neuter when you adopt a pet!
PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is paying Suleman a fistfull of greenbacks to display the novel sign in her front yard in La Hambra (CA).
Ever-vigilent non-profit organization also boosted the morale of Octomom when they threw in one month's supply of veggie burgers and hot dogs for Suleman and her 14 children.
The ubiquitous sign has the potential to heighten awareness about homeless cats and dogs.
According to a PETA spokesperson, seven million dogs and cats are turned over to animal shelters each year and nearly half of those animals are euthanized.
“All my children have a loving home, but the sad fact is that there are not nearly enough good homes for the eight million dogs and cats who enter animal shelters every year - half of whom have to be euthanised due to the lack of good homes,” Suleman noted on her front stoop as a posse of ravinous paparazzi blitzed away.
A handful of sober individuals wondered aloud if "Octomom" believed in the cause (actions speak louder than words).
"Were you motivated by the cash," one reporter asked point-blank.
