Puppy Mill Awareness Day 2012: Austin Texas

What are your plans for this weekend!  If you live anywhere near Austin, Texas, you should head to this big event for Puppy Mill Awareness Day 2012!

Activists, actors and musicians are joining forces to put an end to puppy mills on Saturday and Sunday September 29 and 30, 2012. There's quite a line up!  

Poison drummer Rikki Rockett, actress Shannon Elizabeth, dog trainer Victoria Stilwell, and Animal Cops Houston's Randy Farm will be joining Last Chance for Animals (LCA) president and founder Chris DeRose and rescue group Paws of Austin to host a free educational public event and a VIP reception to raise awareness and put an end to puppy mills.

Take in the VIP reception on Saturday from 7 pm to 10pm at the Urban Grill at The Westin.  For $30 you'll enjoy food, wine, a silent auction and a live art auction featuring puppy mill survivors and their stories.

On Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm celebrate Puppy Mill Awareness Day at Fiesta Garden (West End) with live music, food and drink, the Puppy Mill Survivor Parade, Frisbee show by Karma the Flying Pit Bull and special guest speakers.

Last Chance for Animals (LCA), known as "The FBI of Animal Rights," is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting animal cruelty through education, grassroots outreach and working to enact legislation that protects animal.  Founded in 1984 by Hollywood actor Chris DeRose, LCA began by exposing the inherent cruelty of vivisection (the live dissection of animals).  Over the years, LCA has grown and broadened its focus to include all areas in which animals are abused in our society - including animals in entertainment, stolen companion animals, Class "B" animal dealers, factory farming, puppy mills and the fur industry.
