Adam Sandler's movie "Grown Ups" depicts a devocalized dog in a comical manner, but devocalization is nothing to laugh about. By speaking out now, Adam Sandler can promote humane treatment of animals on the DVD.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

Watch Faces of Devocalization.

Adam Sandler's comedy, Grown Ups, included a canine character who had been devocalized a "convenience surgery" in which vocal cords are cut just to stifle a dog's or cat's voice. The movie portrayed this cruel procedure as necessary and the animal's horribly altered voice as a joke. (The animal actor used in the film was not actually devocalized.) Veterinarians, shelters and adopters of devocalized animals say this is no laughing matter. Devocalized animals face very serious risks without any benefit, not even the assurance of a home.

Adam Sandler, who co-wrote Grown Ups, is widely known for his compassion; he's also a dog lover! Invite him to learn about devocalization by watching Faces of Devocalization, then join us in educating the public.

The DVD release of Grown Ups could promote devocalization. By speaking out now, Adam Sandler can promote humane treatment of animals instead.
