The American Coton Club (ACC), the Home of the Rare Breed Coton de Tulear, is an independent advocate for Cotons. It was established in the year 2000 as an educational and informative service organization by a group of dedicated Coton owners and breeders interested in breed health and preservation.
ACC offers Coton owners and breeders a voice and a choice. ACC is open to everyone; anyone can join who shares the ACC philosophy of health and education, ethical behavior, and doing only what is best for their Coton de Tulear and the breed. Members come from Europe, Canada, South America, the continental U.S. and Puerto Rico. We assume anyone interested in ACC has an interest in Cotons and their welfare.
The American Coton Club (ACC) is dedicated to providing education and information about the Coton de Tulear dog breed to the public in order to contribute to the health and preservation of this rare breed.
ACC is an inclusive membership organization. Those affiliated with ACC have a passion and commitment to this wonderful breed. ACC welcomes all Coton lovers who believe in our mission and love their Coton de Tulear. The American Coton Club members and Code of Ethics breeders are dedicated to preserving and maintaining the full and vibrant gene pool of the Coton de Tulear and understand a Coton is not a Coton without its delightful temperament and characteristics unique to the Coton. Character and temperament must be preserved.
ACC strongly defends the heritage of the Coton de Tulear, the Royal dog of Madagascar, and supports breeders who are working to preserve the physical, psychological and genetic integrity of the Coton de Tulear. The ACC is committed to fighting AKC supported puppy mills, pet store dog sales, backyard breeders and online brokers.
Code of Ethics Breeders who belong to American Coton Club are required to Health Test their breeding Cotons. Expect nothing less!!
The purposes for which ACC was formed include the following:
ACC is a non profit 501(c) (3) public charity organization. It is tax exempt and any donations made to ACC are tax deductible on the donor's federal income tax form. ACC accepts donations and makes grants to worthy Coton de Tulear causes in line with our mission statement.
