SPECIAL TRIBUTE: Puppy Mill Awareness of Southeast Michigan - 3rd Anniversary

Meetup Members,

It has been an incredible month for awareness and new connections! Our message hit the morning show and several articles have been written about the new “Pet Lemon Law”. We held two car cruises and even kicked off a new store campaign in Westland for Puppy Mill Awareness Day!

Our local efforts over the last three years have been recognized in Lansing with a State Tribute. When Senator Steven Bieda learned we were celebrating our 3 year anniversary this year, he offered to prepare this awesome tribute to us.

I love sharing this with everyone, especially those who demonstrate with me during snow storms, down pours and hot humid days. I don’t know how many of you have stated, “if the dogs have to bear the conditions, so can I”. We have some determined souls and it is paying off.

Please thank Senator Bieda and his staff who have a great track record fighting for animals. He is certainly on our side and likely represents you. His district includes (Center Line, Eastpointe, Fraser, Lake Township, St Clair Shores, Warren). Send your thanks to: [address removed]





3rd Anniversary


LET IT BE KNOWN, That it is both a pleasure and a privilege to commemorate the three year anniversary of Puppy Mill Awareness of Southeast Michigan. This is indeed a notable milestone, and we are happy to offer our expressions of congratulations and tribute as you celebrate this special occasion.

The Puppy Mill Awareness of Southeast Michigan has proven that caring citizens can make a difference. Since their first meeting three years ago, the organization has been tirelessly fighting for animal rights, and to help prevent the sales of puppies from commercial kennels. These good citizens have hosted numerous demonstrations to spread awareness and educate the public about the harsh realities of commercial puppy mills.

Clearly as the members of this organization look back on their notable history of service to their community, they can take great pride in their contributions and achievements. In 2010, nearly one hundred Michigan pet stores signed a pledge committing not to sell puppies, and instead supported local adoption programs. Through these and other efforts, members of the Puppy Mill Awareness of Southeast Michigan are helping to ensure a positive future for animal rights.

IN SPECIAL TRIBUTE, Therefore, This document is signed and dedicated to commemorate the third anniversary of the Puppy Mill Awareness of Southeast Michigan and to commend the members on this auspicious occasion. May the members continue to attain success in serving both their community, and their pets.

Steven M. Bieda
State Senator
