The owner of Naperville’s oldest pet store will be honored Mother’s Day weekend for his move to stop selling puppies at his store and opting to rescue from high kill shelters. The Puppy Mill Project will be presenting Greg Gordon, owner of Dog Patch Pet and Feed with the Kindness to Animals Award at their Second Annual Mother’s in the Mills event on Saturday, May 12.
