Independence Day Dog Paw’rades Across U.S. Plead for End to Puppy Mills – Press Release – Digital Journal

What’s red, waggy and blue, and sports stars, stripes and spots?

It was hundreds of darling dogs decked out in their 4th of July best, united Saturday for old-fashioned Independence Day Paw’rades in four cities across the county to bring attention to the connection between pet stores and puppy mills. It was also an opportunity to encourage all citizens of our great nation to adopt rather than buy their next pet, and to demonstrate that purebred dogs, puppies and other highly adoptable dogs can be found through shelters and rescue groups.

The Paw’rades took place in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City and New York City, and an estimated 300 people put on pawtriotic bandanas, beads, leis, ribbons, hats, wigs and flags and walked with their own canine companions and dozens of adorable adoptable dogs.
