One Day, One Voice
Several national animal
welfare organizations have teamed up to organize National Puppy Mill Awareness
Day. Everyone who wants an end to the suffering in puppy and pet mills is
encouraged to participate in helping to educate his/her community to the
realities of the pet industry.
Participation can be
individual or by organization; as elaborate as planning a pet store protest or
as simple as wearing your orange No More Puppy Mills tee shirt or your
Stop The Suffering lapel
button (modeled above by anti-puppy mill spokesdog, Bentley). If nothing
else, please consider tacking up one of our
printable signs, fact sheets, or
flyers on the bulletin board at work, your favorite vet or pet supply
store, or anyplace else you can think of where people gather (always asking
permission first, of course!).
Mill Awareness Day website contains ideas, sample press releases &
letters to the editor, excellent suggestions on dealing effectively with the
media, downloadable flyers, and a calendar showing Events around the country.
These resources will be a valuable asset to fighting puppy mills every day of
the year, so you may want to bookmark the site.
Puppy Mill Project will be holding its awareness event in conjunction with the
DOG AUCTION PROTEST on the 24th -- because, despite the national outreach
on the 20th, the dogs at Thorp need our voices on the 24th!
