Louisiana Habra - It's official. Octuplets mother Nadya Suleman doesn't want your dog or cat following in her footsteps.

As a front yard full of paparazzi cheered her on, Suleman unveiled a 90 cm by 1.22 metre plastic sign on Wednesday that reads: "Don't Let Your Dog or Cat Become an Octomom. Always Spay or Neuter".

The group People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals is paying Suleman $5 000 to keep the sign on her front door until June 9.

The organisation is also throwing in a month's supply of veggie hot dogs and burgers for Suleman and her 14 children.

Suleman's octuplets, conceived by in vitro fertilisation, were born in January 2009. She has since struggled to pay her bills and was in danger of losing her home earlier this year.
