Los Angeles -- Celebrated host of Loveline and HLN's Dr.
Drew and experienced addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky knows that
too much sex can be a bad thing—especially for dogs and cats. To call attention
to the homeless-animal overpopulation crisis, the doctor unveiled his brand-new
PETA campaign outside the Dr. Drew studios in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
In the ad (available here), Dr. Drew
relaxes with his dogs, Daisy and Lulu, next to the words, "Cure Animal
Homelessness: Always Spay and Neuter." At the unveiling, The Sam Simon
Foundation—which provides free and low-cost sterilization surgeries for dogs
and cats in the Los Angeles area—distributed vouchers for free spay and neuter
surgeries. Photos of the unveiling are available here.
Video footage from the unveiling is available here.
Dr. Drew's campaign also includes a video
spot in which the Celebrity Rehab star explains why spaying and
neutering is so important. "Every year, millions of dogs and cats are born
into a world that doesn't want them, and they end up in crowded animal shelters
from which only about half of them are lucky enough to be adopted," says
Dr. Drew. "Save lives by having your dogs and cats spayed or neutered.
It's the right thing to do."
In an exclusive
PETA interview, Dr. Drew opened up about Daisy and Lulu ("They are
members of our family") and stressed that all of us must take
responsibility for the homeless-animal overpopulation crisis. "If you even
have a passing interest in animals or you live with animals under any
circumstances," says Dr. Drew, "I think it takes just a little bit of
attention to be responsible, and you can have a dramatic impact on this
Dr. Drew joins a long list of
celebrities, including Jane Lynch, Bill Maher, Simon Cowell, Carrie Ann Inaba,
Mickey Rourke, Cloris Leachman, Charlize Theron, and John McEnroe, who have
teamed up with PETA to promote spaying and neutering.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
