Ron Artest, PETA spokesman

Feb 22, 2010, 2:27 PM EST

Artest.jpgRon Artest used to have a dog, but by his own admission gave it away because he didn’t know hot to take care of it. His dogs spent more than two months in a county shelter because he neglected them while he was in Sacramento. Two of his dogs died after being hit by cars.

So that means he makes the perfect spokesman for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

For the second time Artest has teamed up with PETA for a campaign, this time aimed at the large stray/homeless (I’m sure there’s a politically correct term for this I don’t care about) dog population in the city. In a billboard in the heart of Los Angeles urging people to have their dogs spayed or neutered. “It’s a slam dunk” is one catchphrase, the other is “have the balls to spay or neuter your dog,” both worthy of Letterman.

Tuesday is national spay day — of course there is a national spay day, stop snickering — and the billboard was unveiled to coincide with that. This is a good cause, and you should get your dog (or cat) clipped. And if Ron Artest can get more people to do that… well, great. Weird, but great.

    Hello, This is an exceptional summary, I located your website checking google for a similar topic and found this. I couldnt find too much other information and facts on this posting, so it was wonderful to discover this one. I will probably end up being returning to look at some other articles that you have written another time. Have you ever thought about blogging for money? there is a website http://www.abused-pets.com that pays you to write articles, you would be good at it.
