Government Relations

A bill is expected to be considered tomorrow in the Michigan House Appropriations Committee that could result in licensing, inspections, and even requirements on how every person who breeds a dog in Michigan should care for their dogs. AKC thanks those who have taken the time to contact their State Representative, and asks that you take the time to contact the committee TODAY.

The Miami-Dade County Commission has temporarily withdrawn the measure that would repeal the county's current ban on specific breeds and types of dogs. It is believed that a new measure will be introduced that will repeal the ban and also amend the county's cruelty laws. AKC Government Relations will continue to closely monitor this proposal and provide more information as it becomes available over the coming weeks.
