It’s time to educate the masses:

“I don’t want to see another dog or cat born.” – Wayne Pacelle, Former CEO Humane Society of the United States
Animal rights extremists like the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), and the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) seek to put an end to animal ownership. In their eyes, animals should share rights with humans and some of the most extreme among them equate animal ownership to slavery. Their goal of abolishing animal ownership and animal breeding is an extreme view not known by many.

Because you can’t just openly support laws and regulations outlawing pet ownership, HSUS instead works to regulate pet breeders out of business. In a number of states and local municipalities, there is legislation on the books that strips away the rights of breeders and those of pet owners.

The first step to stopping these radical organizations and their activities is by being informed. To find out what’s going on in your state, visit AKC’s Government Relations webpage – there you will find a map that lists legislation by state:…/…/insession/viewrpt/main.html…
There’s something you can do if you have concerns. The AKC has also provided a tool kit of tips that walks through the process of contacting your representatives.
