The Pets911 Special Adoption Event held on Sunday, March 30, 2003 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Franciscan Renewal located at 5802 East Lincoln Drive, Paradise Valley, AZ was a fantastic success!
Aussielads Aussie Rescue set up a table for the Lethal White Awareness Campaign to distribute materials and help educate the public about the dangers of Merle-to-Merle breeding of Australian Shepherds. Also on hand were several of our wonderful lethals who are now in loving homes, but always join us in demonstrating the visual impairments caused by the breeding. At the same time, it gives everyone an opportunity to see how smart and loving these dogs can be, and to let people know the ones that already exist deserve a second chance in a forever home.
Here are a few pics of the great poster board (designed by Lorraine) and people visiting.
