Family Guy’s Seth MacFarlane Dedicates Cat Shelter to Late Mother
MacFarlane has joined forces with the Heaven on Earth Society for Animals in Van Nuys, Calif., to create Perry’s Place, a safe haven for homeless cats. Named for MacFarlane's late mother Ann Perry MacFarlane, a passionate animal rescuer who died from cancer last year at age 63, the sanctuary will be a cage-free adoption center.
On July 16, Heaven on Earth announced the initiative to build the sanctuary, and MacFarlane directed his Twitter followers to the project's fund-raising page, which hopes to raise $500,000 by December.
Of course, the comedy writer couldn't resist the opportunity to throw in a little joke. "New no-kill pet shelter in my mom’s name," he wrote. "'Cause animals are better than people."
