Why not march for puppies? After all, they march for everything else these days. Dog lives do matter – not poking fun, just saying if pets are members of the family (and over 90 percent say they are), how do we allow puppy mills to exist – and even thrive?
Puppy Mill Awareness Day is September 18.
Again, i do have the honor – and it is indeed an honor to lead the march down Michigan Avenue. Of course, it is a peaceful and dog-friendly march to support awareness regarding puppy mills. Leading the way will be Chicago City Clerk Susana Mendoza, a supporter of the bill that presumably banned dogs and cats to be sold at pet stores.
Of course, there is no charge to attend – but the hope is that people will fill out this form, so the Puppy Mill Project organizers can let the city know how many people are expected. The goal is that many will be there, as your voice needs to be heard. Please share this post – and tell your pet loving friends.
The walk kicks off at noon from near the Wrigley Building, Plaza of the Americas, (448 N. Michigan Ave,) and will continue north down the Mag mile till around Oak Street – and then turn right back around and end near the Wrigley Building. It’s not a long walk, but it’s sure an important one.
