He may be known for providing the backbeat for the multi-platinum-selling band Poison, but when he’s not on stage Rikki Rockett drums up attention for paws causes. A long-time animal advocate, the rock star will make an encore appearance at Austin’s fourth annual Puppy Mill Awareness Day Texas– part of a movement which is celebrating its 10th year of dogged devotion in 2013.

The Fido-friendly event will include:
Agility and training demonstrations
A parade of puppy mill survivors
Adorable adoptables from more than 40 area rescues and shelters
Vendors featuring pet-related products and services
Food and drink carts
