At the AKC National Championship in December, the American Kennel Club Political Action Committee (PAC) hosted a fun, new initiative to raise money and awareness of the PAC’s efforts to advance dog-friendly public policy. Donors of $40 or more to the AKC PAC who came by the AKC PAC booth on Saturday or Sunday afternoon got a caricature of themselves and their dog by renowned caricature artist Rafael Diez.
In supporting the AKC PAC, participants are taking an active role helping protect their right to own, exhibit, and breed dogs and ensure that legislators understand that AKC dog club members will hold their legislators responsible for laws impacting dog ownership.
The custom drawings will be published in The AKC Gazette & PureDogTalk.com. Select drawings will be featured in Dog News. Sittings went so quickly that the event will be extended to Friday for the 2019 AKC National Championship with additional social media opportunities.
Check out the images below to identify yourself and your friends – and be sure to plan to participate in 2019.
