POISON’S RIKKI ROCKETT PARTICIPATES
IN WEST COAST
PUPPY MILL AWARENESS DAY

“For every pet you adopt from a pet store, another three in a shelter will die,” says Poison drummer Rikki Rockett.

Long-time animal activist and vegetarian, Rockett will join Last Chance For Animals’ Chris DeRose at this weekend’s gathering, PUPPY MILL AWARENESS DAY, to bring attention to this animal problem.

The event will take place on Saturday, September 18, from 11 AM to 3 PM at the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles.  Cesar Millan of The Dog Whisperer fame will be one of the speakers, as will Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.  Chris DeRose and Rikki Rockett will take the podium at noon to speak about the “Puppy Mill & Adopt, Don’t Shop” campaign.

Other TV personalities, live entertainment and a raffle will be featured.

Rockett has appeared at the East Coast Awareness Day for many years, but will join the activities in Los Angeles this year.  Austin, Texas, will host a Puppy Mill Awareness Day the following day, Sunday, September 19.
