Jane Lynch has won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her role as the bitchy coach of the Cheerios on Glee, so it only makes sense that she takes a stand and speaks on behalf of her fellow bitches. Dogs that is.

The comedian is urging the USA Network to air a PSA recorded for PETA during the Westminster Dog Show, which speaks on behalf of shelter animals that are euthanized every year.

“Although I played an ambitious dog trainer in Best in Show, in real life I wouldn’t go near the Westminster Dog Show,” the 50-year-old wrote. “That’s why I’m asking the USA Network to please air PETA’s ‘Everyday Dogs’ public service announcement (PSA) during your Westminster coverage so that viewers will know the real consequences of buying animals rather than adopting from shelters.”

The PSA in question is a dark PETA ad that asks, “If you buy a dog, what will you do with the shelter dog you kill?”

The Westminster Dog Show is probably the most well known and draws in a high number of viewers, some of whom may feel the urge to buy a purebred puppy rather than visiting their local animal shelter to rescue a dog in need.
So far there has been no comment from the USA Network or Westminster, but check out the “Everyday Dogs” PSA below.
