Yesterday, The HSUS released a new report revealing that over the past five years the AKC has opposed more than 80 different bills and ordinances designed to provide stronger protections for dogs in puppy mills, including Prop B in Missouri in 2010. The AKC even stood in the way of anti-puppy mill legislation in North Carolina, where its center of operations is located—and where HSUS has raided multiple puppy mills and showed a link between AKC and these squalid, overcrowded, unhealthy mills. Our new report reveals that some of the worst mills had actually been “inspected” by AKC, and one of them had registered more than 170 litters of puppies with AKC.

 

Then there’s obstructionism that truly makes no sense. The AKC, over the past few months, has opposed measures as benign as an ordinance in Shelby, Tenn., that would prevent dogs from being left alone in hot vehicles, and a Rhode Island bill that would prevent owners from caging a dog for more than 14 hours a day. AKC said the measures were “unwarranted” and “burdensome.”

The AKC isn't in business to help dogs, it's in business to make money. sad.gif

They help create dogs with genetic health problems and bad temperaments.
