The actress has joined the campaign, which hopes to fix the “pet overpopulation crisis” by selling t-shirts and underwear.
The ad campaign delivers a finny take on the serious issue and features one of Heigl’s dogs, and her husband, musician Josh Kelley.
“Unfortunately I can’t cut the nuts off human men — yet,” Heigl, 33, quips in the video. “So I’ve dedicated my time to the neutering of dogs because that’s legal.”
“Launching this campaign is hopefully the type of out-of-the-box thinking we need to heighten awareness of the devastating problem, and sound the alarm that we can save many lives by simply spaying/neutering pets. Hate balls, fix pets, save lives. It’s just that simple,” she said in a statement.

In a video message for IHateBalls, which has partned with FunnyorDie.com, Katherine explaims why she joined the pet campaign, stating, “I’m movie star and Maxim 100 member Katherine Heigl. I work with the Jason Debus Heigl foundation and a lot of people come up to me and say, ‘Katherine, you promote neutering so much, you must really love animals.’ But the real reason I want you to neuter your pets. I hate balls”.
The real reason for her promotion of I Hate Balls has to do with the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, named after her late brother, which seeks to eliminate the needless suffering inflicted on animals by human cruelty, indifference and ignorance, according to US Weekly magazine.
Fans are asked to donate $5 to the foundation.
