'Glee's' Jane Lynch Wants YOU to Spay or Neuter!

Her Vogue video was … well, it was spectacular. I didn't think anything could even compare to it, but I was wrong, Glee fans. Twisted Cheerios coach "Sue Sylvester" has a new video that you don't want to miss! That's right, the amazing Screen Actors Guild Award winner Jane Lynch has recorded a hilarious TV public service announcement for peta2 about a very serious subject—spaying and neutering your dog or cat.

We were thrilled that Jane was able to take some time away from her busy schedule to speak up for the millions of animals who have been sentenced to death in animal shelters for lack of a good home. The issue is so important to Jane, a Chicago-area native, that she's written to the mayor of Chicago asking him to pass a law requiring people to spay or neuter their cats and dogs.

"[T]here's 8 to10 million dogs that are put into shelters every year and only about half of them are adopted out, so the other half are euthanized. And you know, it's a terrible thing to come into this world only to be, you know, taken out prematurely so, we can control this population by spay and neutering our own pets," Jane explains.

As Jane points out, spaying and neutering is the solution to ending the animal overpopulation crisis. "People think it's expensive and troublesome to spay and neuter your dog, and it's really not," she says. Jane's right. Animal shelters, veterinarians, and other organizations across the country, such as PETA's SNIP program, offer free or low-cost sterilization services. So there's no excuse for allowing unwanted puppies and kittens to be born. Check with your local animal shelter or veterinarian first for a list of existing programs in your area. You can also call 1-800-248-SPAY to find information on spay-and-neuter programs.

Watch Jane's exclusive interview with peta2 to find out what else she has to say about what you can do to help animals.
