Octomom Supports Birth Control … for Pets

Updated at 3:14 p.m. ET

It's official. Octuplets mother Nadya Suleman doesn't want your dog or cat following in her footsteps.

As a front yard full of paparazzi cheered her on, Suleman unveiled a 3-foot-by-4-foot plastic sign Wednesday that reads: "Don't Let Your Dog or Cat Become an Octomom. Always Spay or Neuter."

People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals is paying Suleman $5,000 to keep the sign on her front door until June. 9. The organization is also throwing in a month's supply of veggie hot dogs and burgers for Suleman and her 14 children.

Suleman's octuplets, conceived by in vitro fertilization, were born in January 2009.

She has since struggled to pay her bills and was in danger of losing her home earlier this year.
