As mentioned in a previous alert, a bill has been introduced in the California Assembly that would regulate all breeders in the state.

The bill has now been assigned to the Assembly Business and Professions Committee.  No hearing has been scheduled; however, it is important that the committee members hear from Californians who will be impacted by this bill.  In particular, if you are a constituent of a committee member, we encourage you to use the form provided in the Legislative Action Center to directly contact the member and let them know you reside in their district and how the bill will impact you.

Even if you are not a constituent, it is important for the committee to hear from you as a California resident.  Respectfully ask them to oppose AB 702 and let them know how it would impact you as a breeder in California.  View AKC’s previous alert for recommended talking points.  The contact information is listed below.

AKC thanks the club members and breeders across the state who have joined the AKC in communicating the many concerns and problems in Assembly Bill 702.  It is essential that the members hear from Californians and understand how this bill will impact responsible breeders in the state.
