Honor Your Dog-Friendly Lawmaker with a Legislator of the Year Award

Has your state legislator or Congressional representative taken a stand in support of responsible dog owners and breeders? Here’s an opportunity to express your appreciation. Nominate a deserving legislator for the James S. Holt Memorial Award for the Promotion of Responsible Dog Ownership in Legislation.

This award, also known as the “Legislator of the Year” award, is a wonderful way to recognize lawmakers who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to promoting responsible dog ownership and breeding, the well-being of all dogs, and the advancement of dogs in your community.

We depend on you — individuals, AKC club members, and federations—to identify, nominate, and present awards to deserving legislators. The AKC selects honorees from among the nominations received and provides official AKC “Legislator of the Year” rosette awards for you to present to your representative at dog shows/trials, public education events, Responsible Dog Ownership Days, or a location of their choice.

This award is a way for you, as constituents, to honor the legislators you work with. For more information, contact AKC GR at doglaw@akc.org.
