CFA's Letter to AKC re; PAWS


Monday, June 13th, 2005 is a critical time - the AKC Board of Directors will meet with their Delegates in Chicago to hear a presentation explaining the reasons why AKC is supporting the Pet Animal Welfare Statute, PAWS bill.  Dog fanciers are working hard to reach all Board members to persuade them to not support federal licensing and inspection of breeders selling at  retail.

This bill gives the Doris Day Animal League everything they were unable to achieve through the courts in 2003.  If you know dog fanciers who can reach either Board members or member club delegates please ask them to urge AKC to withdraw their support for this bill.  Calls and emails to the Board from dog fanciers are important now.  An updated contact list is below.

Editor's note: the Letter AND CFA's Postion Statement have been "permanently removed" no reason stated.  We considered removing this page from TheDogPlace but instead, we apologize to readers and leave it as a reminder of how and why memory is short :)  We will leave the contact info and names below as a reminder of who was on the board during the PAWS Battle.  See links below for The International Cat Assoc. (TICA) position.

Your voice may have helped persuade Dr. Battaglia, Patti Strand, Ken Marden and Tom Davies to OPPOSE the PAWS Bill.  They need our support to stand fast on their position.  CFA has given us a valuable tool.  It takes only a minute to compose an email, copy and drop each of the email addresses below into it.  For or Against, let AKC know how YOU feel about PAWS.  AKC has joined two of the most prominent anti-breeder legislative forces in the U.S.  You will remember our fight to defeat the legislation pushed by the Doris Day Animal League (DDAL) and the Humane Society Of The U.S. (HSUS)
