If you can imagine all of your senses on overload; your eyes and nose are burning from the ammonia (urine), you can't BELIEVE what you are seeing, the sounds of ~500+ dogs barking in very cramped & deplorable conditions, the matted fur, sores and maggots you feel as you rescue these dogs from their areas...it is unreal, it is overwhelming and it is UNACCEPTABLE!
Puppy Mill Awareness Day was created to raise awareness about the brutal realities of puppy mills. The event began in 2004, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and has evolved to include many states across the nation, including Austin, Texas!
