In Chicago and countless cities across the nation, animal welfare advocates will recognize National Puppy Mill Awareness Day on Sept 17, 2017. Join The Puppy Mill Project as we march down Michigan Avenue. Everyone is welcome.
This event is free! However, please register so we can get an attendance estimate before the event.
Rescues are encouraged to walk with us, bring their banners and wear their rescue t shirts.
We will assemble at 12pm at Plaza of the Americas, on the west side of Michigan Avenue, just north of the Wrigley Building. We will walk to Oak Street and back.
Refreshments will be served in the Plaza of the Americas after the march. Chicago Police Department Chaplain, Robert Montelongo, will provide a non-denominational ‘Blessing of the Animals’ following our walk. He will do a blanket blessing for all the animals present, and will then offer individual blessings for those that would like them.
This event is rain or shine, unless there is lightning and thunder. Please dress yourselves and your pets for the potential of changing weather conditions. At this point, forecasts look promising for Sunday. Please stay tuned to our Facebook event page for updates.
Please join us and bring friends! Dogs are welcome, but all dogs must be leashed.
