Miles for the Mothers in the Mills

The Puppy Mill Project took their message to Naperville on Sunday as they hit the trail along the Riverwalk and through a fun Sunday party - Miles for the Mothers in the Mills. The event was aimed at raising awareness and funds to help educate consumers about puppy mills and their connection to pet stores and online pet sales. Around 175 people of all ages came out to the walk - most of the with their dogs in tow.

There was a costume contest, a pet/person look a like contest and a pet trick contest. A.D.O.P.T. From Naperville, All Herding Breed Dog Rescue,  and Just Giants from Oswego were on hand with their adoptable dogs. Cancer Bites (thanks to Go-D0g-Go Pet Store), a non-profit that raises funds for pet cancer patients, and Pet Supplies Plus were also on hand.

Here's a peek at Miles for the Mothers in the Mills through the lens of Meghan Elise Photography.

    Raining Cats and Dogs

    I am a crazy cat lady and puppy mill warrior that blogs to advocate and educate about pet issues. In American animal controls, millions of pets are abandoned each year and an estimated 4 million die just because there are not enough homes. It truly seems like it’s Raining Cats and Dogs.
