AKC Canine Legislation Support Fund and PAC
Two Ways to Protect Your Rights
The AKC Government Relations team is working hard to protect the rights of dog owners, breeders, and fanciers throughout the country, but we need your help!
- Why are there two funds, what's the difference?
- CLSF and PAC Comparison
- Club Options for Political Involvement
The Canine Legislative Support Fund is used to educate and advocate on your behalf at the federal, state, and local levels and to ensure your rights as a responsible dog owner are protected. These funds may not be used to contribute to political campaigns.
Separately, AKC Political Action Committee (PAC) funds are obtained exclusively from individuals and used to contribute to campaigns to help elect dog-friendly leadership in congress and state houses across the nation. PAC funds may not be used to lobby officials once they are in office or to influence legislation. They may only be used in campaigns.
Please choose which best describes you.
