Mark your calendar for Puppy Mill Awareness Day

The Medfield Animal Shelter is hosting PUPPY MILL AWARENESS DAY on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 20TH from 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM


Puppy mills are a national disgrace and we all need to work together to end the suffering. Raising awareness is our only hope for these poor sweet dogs victimized by greed.

SEEING IS BELIEVING SO PLEASE COME AND SHOW OFF YOUR ADOPTED DOG.


11:00: COOKIES / REFRESHMENTS SOCIAL

Volunteers will be on hand to provide information about dogs in rescue, how to find your perfect canine companion and why not to buy from a pet store or the internet. Learn about the horrors secretly hidden behind most internet and puppy store dogs.


11:30: I WAS ADOPTED PARADE

Celebrate the joy of saving a life by adopting rather than buying a dog. The parade will feature wonderful dogs of all breeds who have come into rescue proving that you do NOT have to buy a dog in order to get a perfect companion. Please bring your people/dog-friendly dog on a leash and join the parade.


12:00: MILL SURVIVORS AWARD CEREMONY

A very special award will be presented to puppy mill survivors who have known first-hand the neglect (or worse), unsanitary conditions, forced confinement and painful ailments caused by lack of basic vet care common to puppy mill dogs.

12:15: DOG TALENT SHOW

Awards will be given for best parade walker and many other categories. If you have a dog with a special talent, this will be the perfect opportunity to show the world.

COME OUT AND HELP US HELP THE DOGS.

DOGS MUST BE DOG AND PEOPLE-FRIENDLY AND ON A LEASH.
