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.



The Animal Welfare Act became Rick Santorum's PAWS (SB1139), handcuffing hobby breeders, spawning Animal RIGHTS, legislative and privacy nightmares.






PAWS, sponsored by Senator Rick Santorum in 2005, is purported to replace the well intended Animal Welfare Act (AWA) of 1966 which primarily protected laboratory animals.


PAWS (SB1139) is Santorum's 3rd attempt to replace Animal Welfare with Animal Rights (ii Animal Rights, instant information)


The cleverly named Pet Animal Welfare Statute - PAWS, wreaks havoc on animal law and actually invades the homes (and privacy) of hobby breeders! PAWS doesn't just nibble away at personal freedom, it takes a huge bite out of the Constitution!


Under USDA authority, The Animal Welfare Act is the current Federal law that regulates the treatment of animals in research, exhibition, transport, and by dealers. All other laws, policies, and guidelines refer to the Animal Welfare Act as the minimum acceptable standard.


Lobbying for more funding, in 2000, the USDA admitted it did not have enough inspectors and personnel to administer or enforce the AWA.  Puppy mill horror stories were beginning to surface on network news.  A "perfect storm" for the Animal Rights crowd.  In 2005, Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) introduced PAWS (Pet Animal Welfare Statute) with the support of the American Kennel Club! See below


PAWS would virtually insure the public only has access to pet shop puppies and kittens, mass produced by commercial breeders.


PAWS is the most serious threat to ever confront hobby breeders.

Every American is guaranteed the Right To Privacy. If PAWS legislation passes, warrantless invasions into our homes, our hobbies, and our private records will follow. 


If you believe PAWS will improve the plight of laboratory and puppy mill dogs, you should click out now.  If however you are intellectually curious, we invite you to follow this PAWS Project. has received threats from many corners but the risk of losing that elusive right upon which this nation was founded looms larger and must be defended.


The uniqueness of the man-dog relationship is a gift from God.  The dog will suffer abuse or starvation and remain loyal to the person it calls Master.  Can we be less than loyal to the dog? Read our Mission Statement, then learn how and why The PAWS Statute Makes YOU a Dog Dealer if you derive $500 gross before expenses. That's all it takes to lose your Constitutional Right to privacy and protection from unlawful search and seizure.
