North Carolina Responsible Dog Owners Making an Impact- Continued Action Needed

(Wednesday, July 08, 2009)

The numerous calls and letters North Carolina Senators have received from responsible dog breeders and fanciers is making a difference!

Today the North Carolina Senate delayed voting on Senate Bill 460, as many Senators have expressed concerns and questions with the bill. The bill has been re-referred to the Senate Rules Committee, where further amendments may be offered.

It is imperative that all responsible dog owners in North Carolina continue to contact their Senator and Representative and ask them to oppose Senate Bill 460.

Read the AKC’s previous Legislative Alert for talking points and further information on the bill.
