Happy Valentine's Day! Is your pet neutered?

February 14, 2011 | 10:45 pm

Since it's Valentine's Day, we couldn't resist sharing the latest video from the Best Friends Animal Society's strangely hypnotic series featuring dogs with human hands. Is it funny? Is it creepy? It's a little of both, and we're trying our best to be OK with that.

The previous pet-adoption-themed installment featured dogs wrapping holiday gifts, decorating Christmas cookies and hanging ornaments on a tiny tree to illustrate the point that all pets deserve a home for the holidays. This Valentine's Day-themed edition points out the importance of spaying and neutering companion animals in order to reduce the pet overpopulation problem.

For help finding low-cost options to have your pet spayed or neutered here in Southern California, Clinico, the Amanda Foundation, the Sam Simon Foundation and Actors and Others for Animals are all good places to start. Like noted animal advocate Bob Barker says, "Help control the pet population: Have your pet spayed or neutered!"

You wouldn't want to let Bob Barker down, would you? We thought not.
