Join us on Saturday, September 9th for ‘Puppy Mill Awareness Day’ in downtown Berthoud, Colorado in Fickel Park from 11am-5pm. This dog and family-friendly festival will feature awareness booths, vendors, music, food trucks, adoptable rescue dogs, a Blessing of the Animals, Town of Berthoud Proclamation, a doggie flea market, doggie costume contest, and much more!

Puppy Mill Awareness Day is FREE to attend. Dogs are welcome on a leash. Feel free to bring a chair or picnic blanket and spend the day!

The event will be hosted by Colorado-based nonprofit organization Harley’s Dream, established in 2016 to create awareness and educate the public about the commercial dog breeding industry, also known as puppy mills.
