Funnywoman Jane Lynch, the sometimes malevolent, always hilarious "Sue Sylvester" on FOX's hit series "Glee," has partnered with animal rights org PETA to record a new public service announcement on the importance of spaying and neutering pets.

“The good folks at PETA asked me to say a few words about the importance of good posture and personal hygiene — but I don’t want to talk about that,” the 49-year-old says in a new TV spot. “I want to talk about the 4 million dogs and cats who are euthanized every year because there aren’t enough homes for all of them.”

Jane continued, “Having dogs and cats who I love so thoroughly has made me a better partner, has made me a better friend. And the love is so unconditional from the animals … you start to transfer that to human beings. I’ve just become a much better person because of my love for animals.”

According to PETA, Lynch also “penned a letter urging [Chicago] Mayor Richard M. Daley to pass a law requiring city residents to spay and neuter their dogs and cats.”
