Mother's Day Weekend Vigil

This Mother’s Day weekend give a voice to the 130,000+ breeding mothers working overtime in puppy-factories producing litters for Mother’s Day gifts. Join our Flint and Eastpointe teams for vigil-demonstrations at the following locations:

Saturday, May 7, 2011

The Family Puppy 12 – 3 p.m
Genesee Valley Center
3341 S Linden Rd Flint, MI

Paws-n-Claws 4 – 6 p.m.
19100 E. 10 Mile Eastpointe, MI

Candles will be provided along with plenty of photos of mothers who never made it out of the kennels. I will also bring t-shirts and buttons (bring cash).

If you have a rescued puppy mill survivor, please bring them for the vigil portion of the events at noon and 4 p.m. You are welcome to stay, but we do not encourage our furry members to be close to the road during the demonstration.

May marks our third month of protesting The Family Puppy and sixth month at Paws-N-Claws. Why have we been coming every Saturday in all types of weather?

The Family Puppy is Michigan’s largest puppy-selling store. They import on average 100 puppies per month from out-of-state breeders with serious violations to the Animal Welfare Act. Flint does not need any business selling commercially breed puppies working against all adoption programs in Genesee County. Get the facts about their breeders.

Paws N Claws works with some of the same breeders as Petland! Seven of the ten out-of-state USDA licensed breeders that supply Paws-N-Claws have citations listed on their inspection reports, ranging from sanitation problems to inadequate veterinary care. In addition, USDA inventory reports show that these are large commercial operations with hundreds of dogs. They are just as bad as Petland, in fact, they use the same broker out of Minnesota.
