Mickey Rourke appeals for dog owners to neuter their dogs

Actor Mickey Rourke has just won a Golden Globe for his performance in the film ‘The Wrestler’ and is one of the favourites for the Oscars later this year, and in his acceptance speech for the Globe he thanked his pet dogs.

Sometimes when a man is alone, that’s all you’ve got is your dog. They meant the world to me.

Mickey is an avid dog lover, and has even put his considerable weight behind the latest PETA campaign to persuade owners to have their dogs neutered. In the advert for PETA, Mickey Rourke can be seen with his puppy, named Jaws, promoting neutering for dogs.

Mickey stars in a PETA video that can be seen on the PETA website. In the video, Mickey Rourke explains:

When dogs get knocked up, puppies get put down because there aren’t enough homes for them.

The most important thing about having a dog and loving a dog is keeping the dog its whole natural life. You have a responsibility to communicate with your animal how much he means to you.
