Take Action on Puppy Mill Awareness Day, September 21!

Take Action on Puppy Mill Awareness Day, September 21!

Join us in taking a stand against pet stores and puppy mills on Puppy Mill Awareness Day on Saturday, September 21! This national event was created to call attention to the truth behind the disgusting puppy mill industry and to encourage the public to adopt—not shop.

An estimated 10,000 puppy mills across the United States breed, imprison, and sell suffering animals for profit. Puppy mills produce over two million puppies each year while millions of homeless dogs needlessly languish and die in shelters across the country.

The dogs need your help! That’s why we are urging everyone to participate in this very special day by coordinating or joining a peaceful event in your
community. You can help by:

 Handing out leaflets in a busy area
 Holding signs outside of stores that sell puppies
 Creating a library display
 Holding a party fundraiser. If you do not live near a pet store that sells puppies but would like to take action on September 21, you could host a puppy mill party to raise awareness and donations for IDA’s puppy mill campaign.
 Get politically active! More than 200 communities across the country have banned the retail sale of dogs and cats. Help to add your town to that growing list by getting involved!!

Cruelty can’t stand the spotlight. Please join us along with compassionate people around the country on Puppy Mill Awareness Day to help bring an end to pet stores and puppy mills!

We can assist you and provide suggestions and materials for your event. Please email our Puppy Mill Campaign Director to get started!
