AKC and your Federation are requesting that you bring this blog to the attention of your respective clubs’ members. https://akcgr.org/akc/app/document/35702150?2 Please feel free to SHARE WIDELY with your contacts in the purebred dog fancy.
US Sen. Richard Durbin (D-IL) recently introduced this bill, US S-4757, also known as the Puppy Protection Act of 2020; it is a companion to US HR- 2442. If enacted, these bills would mandate changes to the federal Animal Welfare Act that would impose onerous and arbitrary new requirements on professional and small hobby dog breeders. Our elected legislators are being heavily pressured by the AR contingent to sign this into law BEFORE the NOVEMBER ELECTION. Already more than 150 of OUR LEGISLATORS have signed on as co-sponsors. It is imperative that you act NOW.
Please reach out to your member of Congress and your US Senators and respectfully, in your own words, explain why this bill, which attempts to impose a one-size-fits-all formula on dog breeding, will severely and negatively impact US purebred dog breeders. Please be sure to mention if you are a CONSTITUENT, and ask that these bills not get out of committee in either chamber. They need to learn from YOU about the unintended consequences of these proposals.
