Don’t Be an Octomom
Nadya Suleman teams with PETA to promote spay/neuter

This week Nadya Suleman, better known as the infamous Octomom, teamed up with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to reveal a new campaign, “Don’t Let Your Dog or Cat Become an Octomom. Always Spay or Neuter.” A banner with the slogan will be hanging in front of Suleman’s La Habra, Calif., home for the next three weeks.

While Suleman’s participation was largely motivated by the $5,000 PETA paid her to hang the sign, she says that she is an animal lover who believes strongly in spaying and neutering. In addition to the money, PETA is giving Suleman a month’s supply of veggie hot dogs and burgers for her and her 14 children.

The sign has only been up one day, but has already garnered a lot of media attention and many requests for copies to display all over the country. In response, PETA has decided to provide signs to the first 100 people to sign up on their website.

While it’s probably true that the money and attention were the real factors that motivated Suleman to participate, I'm glad that PETA is putting her fame to good use. And as much as I dislike all the Octomom hype, I gotta admit the new campaign is pretty funny.
