Today, Katherine Heigl launches an innovative and unconventional campaign focused on promoting spay/neuter of pets, to help save the lives of millions of companion animals. The multi-media initiative kicks off with the launch of a new website IHateBalls.com, that features an original Public Service Announcement starring Katherine Heigl and produced by Funny or Die, the leading comedy video website founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s production company, Gary Sanchez Productions. The video will debut simultaneously on FunnyorDie.com and IHateBalls.com.
The video also sets the tone for the campaign – a funny take on a very serious issue – and features not only Katherine Heigl and some four-legged friends, but a cameo by her husband, musician Josh Kelley. At the witty IHateBalls.com web site which hosts the video, visitors are offered a number of opportunities to support the campaign, promote the message, raise awareness and get involved.
Annually more than 5 million pets are killed in shelters across the United States. Spay/neuter is the most effective method of helping to reduce that number to zero. A simple surgical procedure will eliminate the possibility of unwanted litters of companion animals, who are then subsequently abandoned at shelters and euthanized when homes can not be found for them.

That changed instantly in 2008 when Janet watched Katherine in 27 Dresses. After seeing her strait-laced character rush from a bar cursing at the top of her lungs, "I just knew it," Evanovich says to Heigl. "From that instant you were Stephanie Plum to me."
