http://www.puppiesarebiodegradable.com Unspeakable violence is taking place in Puppy
Mills - the show consists of original artwork created especially in support of the cause.
The range of artists reflects the diversity of contemporary art practices, and unites them
into one theme: They give voice to the tortured lives of thousands of dogs.
Come and meet the amazing gentlemen from Rescue Ink www.rescueink.com and hear
about their efforts to rescue dogs wherever they need their help. The main thing that
brings them together is their love of animals. They met because they were all doing the
same thing in their spare time: rescuing and finding homes for abandoned and abused
Gail Furst of K-9 Healers will be conducting the Canine Good Citizen test at the event.
Please join us for a candlelight vigil at the Geneva Chamber of Commerce building
at 8pm on Friday the 16th. The chamber building is located on Routes 5 and 20 on
the waterfront in downtown Geneva.
