The Puppy Mill Awareness Day (PMAD) organization is proud to announce the first Puppy Mill Awareness Day in North Carolina on Saturday, May 8 (rain or shine) from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Moore Square Park. 

PMAD-NC is sponsored, in part, by The Humane Society of the United States. Special guests include New York's Rescue Ink and Victoria Stilwell of "It's Me or the Dog."
 
Stilwell is an advocate for regulations on commercial breeding facilities. Through her work, she has first-hand experience of the physical and emotional scars that puppy mill dogs carry. She will provide insight on these issues and will discuss what you can do to stop puppy mills in North Carolina.
 
PMAD is committed to educating the public regarding the cruelty within puppy mills and commercial breeding facilities. The event serves to bring attention to North Carolina's growing problem with puppy mills due to the lack of adequate state regulations.

PMAD's Dog Art Auction will take place Friday May 7 at 7 p.m. at the Wake County SPCA. Bid on the artwork created by puppy mill survivors to help raise funds to continue fighting for those left behind. Rescue Ink serves as auctioneers for this unique event.
