Facing foreclosure on her La Habra home, Nadya Suleman, aka Octomom, has agreed to accept an offer from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) wherein she takes cash to apply to her mortgage in exchange for posting a sign on her lawn. News of her acceptance was made public via Suleman's attorney, according to LA Now. The sign will include a message cautioning all not to let their dogs and cats become "Octomoms" and to have them spayed or neutered. Suleman found herself in the position of losing the home she purchased last year for her and her 14 children when she fell behind on payments on the $450,000 home loan still carried by the previous owner.
