Patricia Arquette's New PETA Ad: ABC -- Animal Birth Control

As if her just-announced divorce isn’t enough coverage, Patricia Arquette will fill the pages of various magazines this week in a new ad for PETA. It’s part of PETA’s “ABC” campaign to help fight animal overpopulation.

“More than 7 million dogs and cats are turned in to U.S. animal shelters every year,” says the 40-year-old actress in a release. “Please do your part to help end companion animal overpopulation. It’s as easy as ABC—Animal Birth Control. Always spay or neuter and adopt from your local animal shelter. Never buy an animal from a breeder or a pet shop.”

Dita Von Teese, John McEnroe and Charlize Theron are among the other stars who help PETA promote spaying and neutering.

She has the worst case of snaggle tooth
fanskap 9th-Jan-2009 09:33 am (UTC)
I think the BEST case of snaggle tooth. :)
lynn_z 9th-Jan-2009 05:45 am (UTC)
she looks really pretty here

but I still hate PETA.
amateur_photog 9th-Jan-2009 05:46 am (UTC)
I agree with PETA here, and the ad isn't too outrageous.
me_want_c00kie 9th-Jan-2009 05:49 am (UTC)
Your icon is stupid
amateur_photog 9th-Jan-2009 05:50 am (UTC)
Your stupid.
neonchrome 9th-Jan-2009 06:03 am (UTC)
ia, but i think she's just looking for attention- i don't think anyone could be THAT dumb.
amateur_photog 9th-Jan-2009 06:24 am (UTC)

Also my icon is a joke. I have a bunch that are the opposite of what I stand for, and some that are just outrageous to be outrageous.

maybe the person who made or is using the icon is just ignorant or confused, or I like to hope! Maybe they will learn!
turncoatliar 9th-Jan-2009 06:02 am (UTC)
I agree with your commment, but the "animals have no feelings" in your icon makes me want to go punch a baby. Just saying.
passions_voice 9th-Jan-2009 06:20 am (UTC)
This is what PETA should be about.

Major props for the icon, I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that way.

going to the animal shelter makes me a wreck.. dogs do not deserve such a harsh life.
me_want_c00kie 9th-Jan-2009 05:49 am (UTC)
Same with cats....
tiddlywinks103 9th-Jan-2009 06:04 am (UTC)
Everyone's always crying about dogs, but cats surely die at a more rapid rate in shelters.
existless 9th-Jan-2009 06:04 am (UTC)
of course.
metztlion 9th-Jan-2009 06:01 am (UTC)
Me too. I was volunteering there for awhile and have become too traumatized to go back.
_char 9th-Jan-2009 06:19 am (UTC)
i know :( someone once said 'yuck why do u get your animals from the RSPCA?? why not get them from the pet store' i just didnt know what to say i was like 'are you serious???' i like to know that i've saved a few animals from death, what a tool he was
turncoatliar 9th-Jan-2009 06:21 am (UTC)
Fostering for the animal shelter and rescue groups have landed my family with 6 of our pets. :/
hoot 9th-Jan-2009 06:32 am (UTC)
A couple of weeks ago I went to this thrift shop that my local animal shelter runs and I was like "I'll just run in and play with the animals for a few minutes". I was hysterical afterwards. It was so painful to walk through there and have dogs hurling themselves at the sides of the pens so you'd pay attention to them.
stigmatamartyr4 9th-Jan-2009 07:17 am (UTC)
same to anyone (any specie-including humans suffering a horrible disease with no doctors helping and people who are held captive and abused and children females in China, cows slaughtered for meat and dairy cows and chickens who are slaughtered for their meat or ducks tortured for foie gras) who suffers a great unnecessary deal. So much needs to stop, so more people need to be aware, we all should get together and end it all or lessen it all
buggerfck 9th-Jan-2009 05:47 am (UTC)
That is DEFINITELY airbrushed like whoa. She didn't even look that good in True Romance. O_o
guinea82 9th-Jan-2009 05:48 am (UTC)
This is like the least annoying PETA ad ever.
slutdrunkmystag 9th-Jan-2009 08:26 pm (UTC)
Seriously, if the majority of their ads were like this, I wouldn't hate them as much. That and if they quit trying to act like a rescue organization when all they do is put down 80% of the animals they "rescue."
me_want_c00kie 9th-Jan-2009 05:48 am (UTC)
loveLOVElove this!!!! Love it!!!

reptilia___ 9th-Jan-2009 05:49 am (UTC)
True Romance is like my favourite movie.
fucking love her.
thisaboveall Its all i really remember her from!9th-Jan-2009 05:52 am (UTC)
TR is the most romantic movie ever - although i always had a non=sexual crush on Christian Slater
dorkii_rawk 9th-Jan-2009 06:07 am (UTC)
mine too. "You're So Cool" is my ringtone :-)
bellyroomfan 9th-Jan-2009 03:24 pm (UTC)
haha, this is like when a Jehovah's Witnesses came to my house and asked me how I'd like to live in a world with no pain or sadness. Than how would you know you were happy?
plus 5 minutes after there were no homeless animals, everyone would forget to spay and neuter than we'd have the problem all over again.

I agree with this ad, but I say fuck PETA. They should add that they've killed more than 20,000 animals in the past 10+ years.

And yes I'm a vegetarian
vdoeschallenge 9th-Jan-2009 06:23 am (UTC)
I'm just curious, not looking to defend PETA or anything.
undrthtpaprmoon 9th-Jan-2009 06:28 am (UTC)
Oh they euthanize them in their shelters. They tend to kill about 90%+ of the animals they receive each year.

I just find it hypocritical that they are so quick to judge those who choose to eat meat, call them murderers, then turn around and kill the animals they claim to be saving.

stigmatamartyr4 9th-Jan-2009 07:30 am (UTC)
That is the whole point of this ad so they won't have *kill*/euthanize the animals...I guess you don't get it. I may not agree with some of the stuff they have done or fully support them but geeze, look at the facts they have done so much in many areas to help the world (not just certain species of animals) weather you like them or not. Learn your facts first. Every time PETA does something stupid I like at all what they have done over the years, you can't be so ignorant you look away.
fallen_iceangel 9th-Jan-2009 05:51 am (UTC)
If it was for any other animal organization other than PETA, I'd support this.

But Peta, being the hypocritic psychos they are...
thisaboveall 9th-Jan-2009 05:51 am (UTC)
Peta might not like homeless animals but they LOVE photoshop
