I wanted to let you all know about an AMAZING event happening this Saturday in Los Angeles. If you’re anywhere nearby you should absolutely come out for it! It’s Puppy Mill Awareness Day, and in honor of all of the suffering puppies and dog moms, Last Chance for Animals is putting together a pretty fantastic day. It will include appearances by Mayor Antonio Villagairosa, Cesar Millan (The Dog Whisperer), Michelle Forbes (True Blood), and Debra Wilson (MadTV). I met Debra Wilson at the Animal Acres Gala last weekend, and I can not even tell you how amazing of a soul she is. I’m biased because she addressed me as “Goddess”, which of course made me happy.

There will be a bunch of puppies and adult dogs for adoption. If you have been considering bringing a new dog into your home, this is the place to do it! It will also be an amazing opportunity to meet other animal lovers in the community. While the primary focus of these events is to of course raise awareness about the issue, there is certainly the added bonus of socializing with compassionate, like-minded people. If you aren’t up to date on the state of puppy mills in this country, here are a couple videos to watch:

“Thank you for speaking up for me. You’re my hope and my only voice.”
