Absolutely hits the mark, delivers the perfect message. If you can't be a responsible pet owner, you [U]shouldn't[/U] have a pet.

It's funny - we obviously try hard around here to educate people, but sometimes it takes a celeb to tell people what's right. Sad but true.
Either way good on ya Mickey for stepping up.

Love it! Not crazy about the organization he is speaking for but that's another whole story. Sometimes it takes celebrities to kick start stuff. Let's hope it works!
And then there is Paris Hilton.................

Excellent poster, I wish more would do the same!

That's one thing that I would do if I was ever a celebrity - I would MAKE people aware of things they don't normally pay attention to.

Thank you Marko!!

But isn't PETA about total animal liberation? and they believe that owning pets is like having slaves? so why would they say to neuter them when the decision to breed should be the animals decision. Society doesn't decide which people should have children, so essentially we should not dictate decisions on animals.
I digress...
GOOD message, yet another contradictory message from PETA. Wish it was the HSUS or something that had put the add out, but they don't have thousands of dollars to blow on celebrity advertising do they? The money from donations probably actually sees the animals more then the billboards....

Totally---not offended

On another note, being a newby, I have noticed over the past few days that you have intercepted unwanted links and forums. Having noted this, I would like to say "THANK YOU" for your administration and monitoring of all the topics. It must be a time consuming procedure however; it keeps all of us members focused on what we're here for--our beloved pets.

Thank you Mr. (or Mrs.) Marko

Marko, I wish more men would have the balls to neuter their dogs. I've read so many articles about men who don't want to neuter their dogs because they seem to think their dogs testicles are attached to their own!
