At the AKC National Championship in December, the American Kennel Club Political Action Committee (PAC) hosted its second annual caricature artist fundraiser. Donors of $50 or more to the AKC PAC who came by the AKC PAC booth on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday afternoon sat for a caricature of themselves and/or their dog by renowned caricature artist Rafael Diez.
In supporting the AKC PAC, participants are taking an active role in helping to 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.
