Katherine Heigl is taking an unconventional, humorous approach to help spread the message about spaying and neutering.
The animal-loving actress stars in a new PSA (which is not suitable for children), produced by Funny or Die, for the recently launched site IHateBalls.com, in which she jokes that the real reason she’s such an advocate for spaying and neutering animals is because she simply hates “terrible, terrible testicles.”
The PSA delivers a humorous take on a very serious issue and features some of Heigl’s furry friend and a brief cameo by her husband, musician Josh Kelley.
“Launching this campaign is hopefully the type of out-of-the-box thinking we need to heighten awareness of the devastating problem, and sound the alarm that we can save many lives by simply spaying/neutering pets. Hate balls, fix pets, save lives. It’s just that simple,” Heigl said in a statement.
All net proceeds from the sale of “I Hate Balls” merchandise will go to the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation.
