CORRECTION: The original version gave the incorrect amount of veggie dogs and veggie burgers PETA offered Octomom Nadya Suleman and her family.
A day after a porn king offered to bail Nadya Suleman out of foreclosure of her La Habra home, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has sent Octomom a letter stating PETA will assist her financially. And she doesn't even have to appear in an adult film. All she must do is post the above sign on her front lawn.
Suleman has agreed to put the sign shown at the beginning of this post on her front lawn in exchange for $5,000 and enough veggie dogs and veggie burgers to feed the single mom and her 14 kids for a month
Meanwhile, her attorney is reportedly negotiating with the seller of Octomom's home to free up more time to refinance
the $450,000 balloon note.
Here is the PETA letter that sparked the deal:
