Dogs and cats give birth in litters, and last year, so did Nadya Suleman, hence her moniker OctoMom. That common bond is what seems to have prompted People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to have offered to rescue Suleman fromforeclosure on her La Habra home, MyFoxLA is reporting.

The animal rights organization reached out to Suleman after hearing that the mother of 14 (that's her one-year-old octuplets plus her 6 older children) might be facing foreclosure. They are offering an "undisclosed sum" to go towards a $450,000 balloon payment that's over two weeks late--if Suleman will post a sign in her yard riffing on her own motherhood. The sign would read: "Don't Let Your Dog or Cat Become an Octomom. Always Spay or Neuter."

According to PETA, Suleman's lawyer is "considering the offer."
