The American Kennel Club (AKC) views animal rights as a radical philosophy that believes humans should not use or own animals in any way, even as companions. For animal rights proponents, the ultimate goal is not to improve the wellbeing of animals, but to stop them from being bred and to stop human interaction with them. Visit the AKC’s Legal Status of Animals Key Issue web page to learn more about the differences between animal rights and animal welfare.
