Following criticism for the treatment of animals in her care, Katie Price has been offered £5,000 in exchange for signing a contract never to own animals again.

Following the news of Katie Price buying another animal in January, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have issued an open letter, along with an offer of £5,000 if she agrees to never acquire a pet again. 

An urgent plea 

The newest addition to Katie Price's family is a Sphynx Kitten, which allegedly cost £1,200.

Proudly announcing his arrival the same month she re-homed her German Shepherd puppy Tank, the move has been met with criticism from animal lovers around the world. 

It comes as the latest in a series of events that has animal welfare group PETA seriously concerned. So much so, that they recently issued an urgent plea to the star. 

"We recognise that things have gone horribly wrong with many of the animals you have acquired", writes vice president Elisa Allen. " We sincerely hope you will take PETA up on the offer to provide you with £5,000 if you agree never to acquire another animal". 

Welfare concerns

At least seven of Katie Price's animals have died in her care, including black German Shepherd Blade, who was killed by a car on the road outside her house. 

Pomeranian Sharon also died following an accident on the same road, while French Bulldog Rolo was reported to have died at home, in a tragic incident involving a chair.

The former model has also given away a number of pets, including grey French Bulldog Precious, who she originally gifted to her daughter Princess. 

PETA's offer is stated to be valid for a period of 12 months, within which Katie would need to sign a legally binding contract. Whether or not she will accept, remains to be seen.
