Carrie Ann Inaba brings one of her three cats to pose for the Broadway-themed poster which encourages people to stop breeding animals and killing them eventually.
"Dancing with the Stars" judge Carrie Ann Inaba shows off some leg in the new ad campaign for PETA. Along with one of her cats, Shadow, Inaba is raising awareness about Animal Birth Control by encouraging pet owners to spay and neuter their animals.
There are two versions of the posters which will be featured on 100 billboards across Los Angeles. Both feature the same pose by Inaba, only the landscape one bears more information about the free spay-and-neuter clinic, The Sam Simon Foundation. "Don't Miss a Step - Spay or Neuter Today!", the tag is read.
Like other animal-loving celebrities working for PETA, Inaba also gives a reason why she loves her animal and why they must be taken care of. "I think we must be much more kind and much more sympathetic and to try take time to understand what their needs might be because they don't have a voice," she said in the accompanying video.
Regarding the cause itself, Inaba said "First of all, it's really important to spay and neuter your pets because there are so many. What's so sad is people are breeding them, and then we're putting them to sleep. We are breeding ones that are never gonna be loved, so why do it in the first place?"
