Puppy Mill Awareness Day is Almost Here

Millions of people unknowingly buy puppy mill puppies each year from pet shops or from Web sites of what appear to be legitimate breeders. Puppy Mill Awareness Day is an annual event designed to educate and inform the public about the neglect, unsanitary conditions, forced confinement and ailments caused by lack of basic vet care common to puppy mill dogs. On Saturday, September 19th, the Medfield Animal Shelter will be taking part in our second Puppy Mill Awareness Day by hosting an event that is designed to be both fun and educational.

Please join us to learn more about puppy mills and what you can do to help stop the mistreatment of dogs caught up in this inhumane industry. The day will feature an adopted dog parade and a dog talent contest open to all dogs. Volunteers will be on hand to provide information about how to adopt the right dog for your family, and representatives from many local rescue groups will be there with some of the adoptable dogs in their care. We will be serving refreshments at 11:00 followed by our Adopted dog parade showcasing many wonderful dogs adopted from shelters and rescues. All people and dog-friendly dogs are welcome to participate in the event. Dogs must be on a leash. Please call (508) 359-8989 or visit our website at MedfieldShelter.com if you need more information about the event.

There is a lot of good information on the Web about puppy mills. If you are not familiar with puppy mills and their treatment of dogs and puppies, and want to learn more about why people that care about animals think they should be illegal this is a good place to start learning more.
