London, May 20 (ANI): PETA is paying octomom Nadya Suleman 5,000 dollars to put a 3-foot-by-4-foot plastic sign on her front door that reads— “Don”t Let Your Dog or Cat Become an Octomom. Always Spay or Neuter.”
The sign will adorn Suleman’s door until June 9, the deadline when city officials say it must be removed.
The organisation is also throwing in a month”s supply of veggie hot dogs and burgers for her and her 14 children.
Suleman, 34, acknowledged she put the sign on her door partly for the money but added that her support of PETA is genuine.
“I love animals and I do believe they should be spayed or neutered. Humans of course are much different,” the Telegraph quoted her as saying.
Suleman said that her children, the oldest of whom is nine, want a dog and she has told they can have one when they are old enough to care for it.
Suleman already had six children when she gave birth 16 months ago to octuplets conceived by in vitro fertilization.
And since then she has been trying hard to pay her bills and was in danger of losing her home earlier this year.
Her lawyer has since negotiated an extension on a 450,000 dollars mortgage payment that had been due in March.
“It”s really a win-win situation for everyone,” PETA campaign coordinator Amanda Fortino said of the sign.
Fortino said the agreement allowed PETA to do its part to help Suleman financially and at the same time they could spread the word that more than 7 million cats and dogs enter shelters every year, where more than half are put to death. (ANI)
