The Great Lakes Pet Expo was held on Saturday, February 2, at State Fair Park in West Allis. This is the largest event of it's kind in Wisconsin, with thousands of attendees and more than two hundred exhibitors.
Milwaukee Animal Alliance, a new organization, had what was perhaps the most eye catching booth of the expo.
Their agenda was to ask people to "raise a paw" for the animals of Milwaukee County that can't raise theirs. They had 5357 paw stickers, one for every animal that was killed at Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control (MADACC) in 2012. They asked people to express their desire for change by placing a sticker on their wall. When you see the before and after picture, it would seem that Milwaukee has spoken.
Check out the Milwaukee Animal Alliance's newly unveiled website www.milwaukeeanimalalliance.org for more pictures and their vision of a brighter tomorrow for Milwaukee County's animals.
Will you join us and "raise your paw"?
