You heard right, the infamous octomom Nadya Suleman has teamed up with PETA to help promote their infamous spay and neuter campaign. Fitting, yes?

For $5,000 and a month’s supply of veggie burgers and dogs, Suleman has agreed to place an ad on her front lawn, stating, “Don’t let your dog or cat become an ‘octomom.’ Always spay or neuter.”

According to PETA.org:

“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. And with Nadya’s entire family chowing down on veggie burgers and veggie dogs all month long, factory farmed animals’ lives have been spared.”

What do you think about this octo-campaign? Effective activism or not so much? Chime in and share your thoughts!

    i love it !!! i think is super funny!

    I like the idea. And who better spokesperson for the animal overpopulation than a human being with 14 kids! I am not saying that i am equating Nadya to the cat in the picture, but, seriously, the cat has kittens because they do not know any better and they get preggers and then have lots of little ones that end up dead, or at the shelter. Humans on the other hand can decide whether to have kids or not, and how many to have. So, what is my point? No point, just that i like the idea, i like the message and it is getting across to many people because i first read about this in Popeater a couple of days ago. And, and, and…Nadya and her little ones are eating veggie burgers!

    YAY for spay and neutering, YAY for octomom agreeing to the ad, YAY for her veggieburger-month-long-diet, and YAY for PETA, always coming up with different, sometimes extreme, and always unorthodox ways of getting their message across. It works i tell you, it was with one of their “Vegetarian Start Kits” that my husband and i said buh-bye to animal products forever and ever a year and a half ago.

      That’s not true. I saw him at Five Guys burgers and Fries ordering a double cheese with all the fixins just last week!!!LOL

    goddamit, thats a brilliant piece of activism. :-) its unorthodox and positive. :-)

      Well, yes and no. It took me years of reading about animal cruelty and watching horrible videos to make the decision, but it was one night when i picked up the mail and there it was, PETA’s VSK. I looked through it and saw these really sad pictures of chickens in a “free range” facility, and cows heads and as my stomach was turning my husband said “hey, why don’t we go veggie?” I said YES! And we have not looked back. Now he is a vegan and i am 99.9 percent vegan. I am getting there :)

    HAHAHAHA. pshhh, someone should have spayed HER. In this world, extra humans are even more unnecessary than extra cats.

    • Kel

      And I suppose that you and people that agree with your point of view would be the ones to decide who the “extra people” are?

      • georgina0912

        I do not think Natasha was suggesting to be one of the people who decides who the “extra people” are. But in all seriousness, if you cannot afford to have kids don’t have them, or at lest do not have 14!

        How do you get the same message to a cat? You don’t, you simply spay and neuter.

      I completely agree. Overpopulation of humans has done more damage that overpopulation of animals but they consider limiting human births unethical.

    I think it’s plain stupid to pay her and give her free food for an advertisement. There are plenty of people who actually care about the cause who would do it for free. This lady is taking advantage of the situation just like she is taking advantage of the government by living off welfare when she made the choice to get artificially inseminated. Life is tough but these government programs were there years ago. What did parents do then? They worked to make ends meet. If she only wanted one or two kids then she should have adopted or “rescued.” I don’t think this is fitting I think it’s hypocrisy. It’s like a backyard breeder telling people to spay and neuter. She is doing more damage to the cause than anything.
