Victoria Stilwell and Steve Dale on National Puppy Mill Awareness Day.
National Puppy Mill Awareness Day is September 27 – and Victoria Stilwell, from “It’s Me or the Dog” on Animal Planet is on WGN Radio with me to talk about it Sunday, September 13, 6:35AM CDT on Steve Dale’s Pet World. Listen HERE or at 720AM.
Victoria and I share the same view – we’re sick of these puppy mills, which are actually thriving these days – between pet store and online purchases. I think it’s a matter of awareness, and would be nice – though apparently unrealistic – to enforce laws to put them out of business. So, at least we can cut off supplies to pet stores by doing what’s been done in Chicago and Cook County, that’s banning pet store sales of dogs and cats.
There will be an events all around the country on September 27. In Chicago, a march down Michigan Avenue, starts at 420 N. Michigan Ave. at noon. I will lead the march of however many people turn up – hopefully hundreds, people and dogs!
