"Dear MC-KC Member,
The AKC has recently contacted myself, and all other AKC member club presidents, asking that we reach out to our club members for support on a fund raising mission.
The future of purpose bred dogs is under attack. Every year, animal rights groups threaten responsible owners and breeders by proposing new and more extreme anti-dog laws. Hobby breeders and fanciers are not exempt.
The AKC Political Action Committee (PAC) is a non-partisan, single issue advocacy group that supports the election of candidates who demonstrate a commitment to the future of purpose-bred dogs and can impact dog ownership laws at the local, state and federal level.
But the AKC PAC needs our help. As president of the Manitowoc County Kennel Club, I am challenging you and every member of our club to support the future of our breeds and sports with a donation to the AKC PAC. Even a donation equal to one entry fee (about $35.00) can make a big difference. 100% of the funds contributed to the AKC PAC go directly to support dog owner/breeder friendly candidates. Contributions can be made online at www.akc.org/pac or via a form that can be found on the club web site. I will also have copies available at the club house. Be sure to indicate that you are contributing as a member of the Manitowoc County Kennel Club. Any donations sent directly to the club will be sent on the AKC PAC.
More information about the AKC PAC can be found on our web site and at www.akc.org.
President – MC-KC"
