NBC25 reports PETA offered to pay for advertising in the Montrose, Mich. school district as a way to help the district facing budget cuts and staff layoffs.
The Montrose Community School District was forced to issue 45 pink slips to school employees. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) made a very public offer through a press release, but no monetary amount was included.
PETA responded to NBC25 requests and are willing to pay the school district $1,000 for two ads.
Superintendent Kleinhans says the district needs more money than the state is expected to budget and will look into the animal group’s offer.
