New CA Spay & Neuter Program Features Pierce Brosnan-Designed License Plates

With a twinkle in his eye and the innate ability to make women instantly swoon (whether on or off celluloid), Pierce Brosnan has earned his keep for multiple decades portraying memorably debonair characters such as television’s Remington Steele and the silver screen’s iconic British secret agent James Bond.

Somewhere along the line, the Irish-born actor traded in his spy gear for the tools of the die-hard environmentalist’s trade by working alongside his wife Keely to preserve marine environments and generally make the world a greener place.

On the heels of our coverage of Brosnan rallying behind the Humane Society of the United States‘ efforts to protect international whaling laws comes the latest news that he’s now putting his support behind a new groundbreaking California-based spay and neuter program.

The Golden State may love its pets but the overall number of animals that end up meeting their fate in shelters has steadily risen since 2004 to roughly 500,000 annually, largely due to strays reproducing, accidental pregnancies and the toll of our recession-strapped economy.

In response to this ever-accelerating crisis, the California Veterinary Medical Board has launched the California Spay and Neuter Specialty License Plate Program in the hope that animal lovers will purchase their special plates, the proceeds of which will fund countless low cost and even free surgery programs across the state.

To sweeten the deal, Pierce Brosnan has donned his artist’s smock to create several original designs which can be pre-ordered as of June 9, 2010 and the actor along with various other distinguished guests (including Bob Barker — that guy is everywhere!!) will appear in person at the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter the day before to spread the word about how spaying and neutering will save many lives.

As if you didn’t love ’em already, here’s yet another reason why Brosnan deserves double high-fives and a some sort of sparkely trophy for being an all-around outstanding human being.
