ST. CHARLES — A group that advocates for animals is using a traveling art exhibit to call attention to Missouri's puppy mill industry.

The Missouri Alliance for Animal Legislation is sponsoring the exhibit, called "Misery in Missouri: Dogs Can't Vote, You Can."

The exhibit will be on display March 19 to 21 at the Show-Me Center in Cape Girardeau; then it will move to Framations Art Gallery in St. Charles from March 20 to April 3. Other venues will be added.

Visitors are invited to sign an interactive piece of art called "Show Me" by artist Ken Farris and to contact their elected officials.

Missouri is known as the nation's puppy mill capital.
