Animal advocacy groups need not fret over finding the right spokesman anymore because there's one who's happy to lend a hand: Bond. James Bond.
Actor Pierce Brosnan provided original artwork for a new license plate commissioned by the California Spay and Neuter License Plate Fund Inc. and California Veterinary Medical Board.
"This license plate will provide much-needed funds which will enable people who couldn't necessarily afford to spay or neuter their pets to do so," said the actor, whose drawing of his own adopted pets, dog Shilo and cat Angel Baby, graces the plate.
Known as the Pet Lover's License Plate, it's currently available for sale through the California DMV, or can be purchased at PetLoversPlate.com. Standard plates are $50, while personalized plates cost $98.

As Charlotte, 41, was becoming very ill from ovarian cancer, "Pierce was willing to pick up the phone and call anyone, go anywhere, take her anywhere, do anything for her at anytime,” says Lisa Paulsen, president of the Entertainment Industry Foundation and a longtime Brosnan family friend.
Despite his best efforts to get her into the latest clinical trials, Charlotte lost her three-year battle with the disease on June 28.

Robert Pattinson is not exactly known for being overly gregarious with his fans in public. But who knows – that could change if he keeps hanging out with Pierce Brosnan.
The two actors worked together in the upcoming film Remember Me, and in their downtime together, the former James Bond, 56, mentored the young Twilight heartthrob in the art of handling the gawking masses.
"He's totally recognizable, and he makes no effort to tone it down," Pattinson tells Vogue for its March issue. "Some people were glancing over at us in the restaurant, and he just went over and introduced himself. And it does work. It dissipates all the attention."
