This week, actress Jane Lynch became the latest celebrity to encourage people to spay and neuter their dogs and cats in a new public service announcement released by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). In the video, the Glee star states that almost half of the eight to 10 million dogs left with animal shelters are never adopted and are consequently euthanized. The campaign emphasizes that by spaying and neutering companion animals, people can lessen the cruelty of killing unwanted animals. Lynch has also written Chicago mayor Richard Daley, asking him to pass legislation requiring Windy City residents to spay and neuter dogs and cats, according to PETA.
