Too much pussy can be a bad thing. Stop animal homelessness!
Jersey Shore may be about to kick off its final season, but Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino already has his next gig lined up: animal advocate. That's why he teamed up with PETA for a brand-new campaign, which he unveiled in person on Thursday in front of MTV Studios in Times Square, that calls attention to the homeless-animal situation. ]
Description From PETA:
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is taking his time off from the exciting life on MTV's Jersey Shore to help end animal homelessness.
He knows that the only way to end the animal overpopulation crisis is to always spay and neuter your companion animals. There are lots of lucky animals who get to go to loving homes, but unfortunately, there are far more animals in need of families than there are wonderful people to adopt them.
Mike and PETA made this ad to help spread awareness of animal homelessness and of the fact that we really do have the power to help animals have a better life.
Here's the situation: Every year, 6 to 8 million abandoned, lost, or unwanted dogs and cats enter animal shelters. Half are euthanized because there simply are not enough homes for them all. Animals who aren't fortunate enough to be taken to a shelter struggle to survive on the streets and suffer from starvation, dehydration, diseases, parasites, or injuries or are tortured by cruel people.
Remember: Always spay and neuter you cats and dogs!
The Situation joins a long list of celebrities—including Justin Bieber, Kellen Lutz, Jay Sean, Simon Cowell, Mickey Rourke, Audrina Patridge, and Joanna Krupa—who have teamed up with PETA to help fight animal homelessness.
The Situation also sat down for an exclusive PETA interview in which he discussed his recent visit to an animal shelter. "It definitely was overcrowded, and I learned that there's been a problem, and it's a growing problem," he says of the homeless-animal overpopulation crisis. "Fix your animals." Sitch also cautions everyone that adopting a dog or cat is a lifelong commitment and urges anyone who witnesses animal abuse to call the authorities immediately.
