The Motor City loves dogs too! Local businesses are hosting September car cruises to drive away puppy mills by spreading the word for Puppy Mill Awareness Day 2011. These “blow-out” events are geared toward putting an end to the puppy pet-trade through increased awareness of the many adoption options at local shelters.

The Puppy Mill Awareness Meetup will set-up shop at Boomers (Waterford) 9/13 and Mr. B’s (Clarkston) 9/15. Please join us for all sorts of activities.

PHOTO CONTEST: Bring a nude photo of your rescued dog for a pin-up contest. No collars or clothes to help us “expose” the pet stores.

DOG-FRIENDLY: Cruisers are welcome to bring their furry friends. (Cruisers only).

TROPHIES: M&M Services - Precision Machining of Troy will be providing a hand-made dog award assembled from car parts for the People’s Choice Award.

PRIZES: Raffles, door prizes and dog door prizes.

DOG OBEDIENCE DEMOS: Doug’s K-9 Training will be offering demonstrations at Mr. B’s Car Cruise. Don’t miss his Police Dog demo!

DISCOUNTS: Boomers specials include: Beer of the week $2.50 and a Happy Hour 3-6 pm with $1 off drinks. Mr. B’s offers 25% off coupon for cruisers at weekly cruises and will provide free food for final season cruise on 9/15.

DONATIONS: Donations will be collected for Oakland Pet Adoption Center (1700 Brown Rd Auburn Hills, MI) and Almost Home Animal Rescue (25503 Clara Lane, Southfield, Mi)
