Vanessa Carlton's New ABC Ad
Spring is in full swing, thank goodness! I am totally over cold weather and apparently so are all the wildlife around here, they’re um, well, they’re downright frisky. That’s what happens when Spring rolls around, which makes it the perfect time to talk about spaying and neutering, and our brand new ABC (Animal Birth Control) ad starring Vanessa Carlton and her handsome canine companion, Victor.
I have to say that ad is pretty darn cute. And Victor is adorable! Vanessa and Victor want everyone to practice their ABC’s because that’s the best way to end animal homelessness. “The most well-adjusted and emotionally balanced dogs and cats are the mixed breeds found in shelters,” says Carlton.
Vanessa joins NBA star Ron Artest and burlesque queen, Dita Von Teese in supporting our ABC campaign because they want you to know that millions of animals are euthanized in shelters every year because there aren’t enough good homes for them. And when you buy a dog or a cat from a breeder or a pet store, it kills a shelter animal’s chance for adoption.
Adds Carlton, “Bottom line: Always go to a shelter first. Personally, I think spaying and neutering should be an enforced law.” We agree! Thanks to our friends at CosmoGirl.com who are helping us launch the ad!
