PAWS - Pet Animal Welfare Statute, Introduced by Rick Santorum in 2005, was the worst animal legisistion ever!  Puppy mills were exempt but show breeders and hobby dog breeders would have become non-existant.


 PAWS Index - Pet Animal Welfare Statute 


Animal Rights began in 1800s England, migrated to America in the 70's, and is exemplified by the 2005 Pet Animal Welfare Statute, disingenuously called PAWS.  These historical documents prove Animal Rights legislation is based on HSUS, Santorum, and AKC’s remake of the Animal Welfare Statute - and why…

AKC Pimps For PAWS

"if enacted into law, PAWS will not have a detrimental impact on the fancy's ability to breed dogs for the show ring or performance events, or to provide dogs as pets to carefully selected buyers." June 2005 Chairman's report, by Ronald Menaker who shamelessly supported (literally!) Senator Rick Santorum's bill.


Picked The Wrong Horse

AKC, HSUS, and Santorum know less about horses than they do about dog owners.



The ultimate treachery.  Why AKC fought the PPA but did everything to pass PAWS!

Argument For Puppy Mills

If PAWS succeeds, we'll all know where to buy a puppy, the papers are full of them, blatant millers, multiple ads, multiple breeds, same phone number -  and where is the AKC? dateline August 17, 2005
