Dunk Ron Artest for 600 Million Dogs?
Tonight in Hollywood, celebrities are expected to take a dunk for the dogs at a unique fundraiser to benefit 600million.org. A slew of celebrities and athletes including David Duchovny, Larry King, Eric Roberts, Ron Artest and Sugar Ray Leonard, have been invited to participate in the ‘Dunking for Dogs’ event – where you might find them sitting in a dunk tank waiting to take one for the team.
The team is 600million.org. The organization was founded by PETA co-founder Alex Pacheco, and aims to save millions of stray dogs:
- It is estimated that on any given day there are more than 600 million stray dogs living in desperate conditions around the world; and these strays give birth to between one and three BILLION puppies each year. As a result of these staggering numbers, stray dogs suffer terribly, and literally millions are brutally killed in the name of “population control”, especially in countries without animal cruelty laws. 600million.org‘s mission is to end this needless suffering and killing by developing and distributing worldwide a pill which safely, economically, and painlessly sterilizes stray dogs, thereby reducing reproduction rates and controlling stray populations humanely. This scientific work is expensive and we need your financial support to make it a reality. This is an almost inconceivably large problem, but a solution is in sight. Please make a donation now. Your generous gift will directly reduce the suffering of stray dogs everywhere. Thank you.
Other invited celebrities include: Ed Begley Jr., Brooke Mueller, Perez Hilton, Lisa Rinna, Harry Hamlin, Catherine Bach, Cheryl Tiegs, Kyle Richards, the cast of Days of Our Lives, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Cheryl Woodcock and more.
Personally, I would like to see Ron Artest in the dunk tank….he isn’t the most ‘dog-friendly’ athlete in the world, so it couldn’t hurt…and no, he is NO Michael Vick by any stretch of the imagination-just needs a little education on the proper care and feeding of pets…but he’s trying…after his drama with animal control, Ron-Ron suddenly became the poster child for PETA’s spay and neuter program…
If you can handle it, there are some phenomenal videos on 600million.org’s YouTube channel.
As always, thanks for reading~
