what is puppy mill awareness day?
Puppy Mill Awareness Day is a day dedicated to celebrating the lives of dogs who have survived a horrible experience and those people and organizations that dedicate their time, energy, and resources to reducing abuse and neglect that is associated with the commercialization of dog breeding. Making people aware that Puppy Mills do exist in all shapes and sizes and the awful things that happen to these animals as a result of their existence. PMADTX brings together Central Texas Rescue Groups and supporting organizations in an event setting open to the public to help educate as well as assist people in their search for that wonderful addition to their family.
Funds raised will go to organizations taking in dogs directly affected from puppy mills for their vet support and care throughout the state of Texas. We are proud to have assisted with many lives being saved, all as a result of people like you continuing to help, so we can continue to help.
PMADTX has 2 major events per year in order to raise both monies and awareness.
The first of which is our VIP (Very Important Puppy) Reception, where guests and sponsors gather over cocktails and hors de ovoures, guest speaker presentations, and a live art auction featuring works of art from puppy mill survivors and friends of PMAD.
Our second event is a free event held outside featuring dog rescue booths, local celebrity emcees, live music, blessing of the animals, and vendors. Well behaved dogs on leash are welcome. We spend a day raising awareness, money, helping connect dogs with their new families, and have fun at the same time.
PMADTX is a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization located in Austin, Texas, that is dedicated to driving awareness of Puppy Mills and the related abuse as well as raising monies to assist in providing resources and care that these animals so desperately need.
