On Thursday, January 8, the Alliance will be holding a "Beyond Oprah: Missouri's Puppy Mills" educational event in Kansas City.
The event will include a viewing of a portion of the Oprah show exposing the problems with the puppy mill industry in Pennsylvania.  Additionally, there will be a panel discussion of the puppy mill problem in Missouri and how interested persons can help. 
The panel will feature Alliance director, Julie Leicht, Alliance legislative director, John Coffman, and Bob Baker, Investigator with the ASPCA. 
Bob Baker has been active in animal welfare since 1977, and is a nationally recognized authority on animal cruelty investigations.  During his extensive career, he has served as Chief Investigator for the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and, most recently, as Field Investigator for the Humane Farming Association. Bob joined the ASPCA in January 2007 as Investigator, Anti-Cruelty Initiatives, where he will be a key player in the ASPCA's ongoing efforts to combat the cruelties of puppy mills and large-scale commercial breeding operations.
This special event will be held at the Ron Berg Gallery and Event Space, Crossroads District, 1525 Grand Blvd., Kansas City, Mo 64108 beginning at 7PM (Jan 8).  Parking is available behind the gallery for this event.
This educational presentation is co-sponsored by No More Homeless Pets KC and is presented with the gracious support of the Ron Berg Gallery.
