Kathryn Erbe, Lomax and LilahPosted by on February 5, 2009
With the help of some celebrity sponsors, The American Mutt-i-grees™ Club has declared 2009 as “The Year of Mutt-i-grees™!”
Kathryn Erbe, AMC spokesperson and star of Law and Order: Criminal Intent and her mutt-i-gree companion, Lilah, joined PBS’s Hound of Music’s talking dog Lomax in an effort to reduce pet overpopulation and help end pet euthanasia. The AMC aims to raise awareness and promote regulation to diminish the stronghold of puppy mills and irresponsible breeders. The goal is to change the way many view mixed-breed dogs in general, as mixed breeds make up more than three-fourths of the dogs that enter shelters and are the majority of the more than 3 million dogs euthanized in shelters every year.
