WE ASK YOU TO FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO ALL YOU EMAIL LISTS

From: AMERICAN CANINE FOUNDATION
To: THE DOG FANCY, RESCUES AND DOG REGISTRIES

Yesterday and today ACF lawyers filed a 9 count federal complaint against
the state of California for passing SB 861 which calls for mandatory spay
and neuter of specific breeds and breeding permits that can allow animal
control to control your breeding of purebred dogs.

ACF has three lawyers Greg Kohler (pit bull owner) , Jeff Shaver (Rottweiler
owner) and Carol Chan(pit bull owner) representing ACF.

ACF is claiming California sided with PETA and other radical extreme animal
rights organizations and completely ignored canine experts. ACF has made it
known that PETA wants the end to domestic pet ownership and its addressed in
the federal complaint

This is the most powerfull federal legislation to ever come about over the
issues of breed specific legislation and we beleive we have a strong chance
to prevail.

WE NEED THE SUPPORT OF THE DOG FANCY AND DOG REGISTRIES


Without your support we can't fight this case giving it 100%
No matter where you live SB861 can affect you if its not stopped, other
states will adopt it in the future.

Spay and neuter of dogs will not reduce the populations in shelters, for one
thing a dog lives 12 years and the majority of dogs impounded are not there
because of being intact. SB861 is not going to reduce shelter numbers, its
supported by PETA and its intent is to exterminate dogs of all breeds to end

domestic pet ownership.

ACF REPRESENTS YOU THE RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNER AND YOUR RIGHTS !!!

This case is being litigated for all the Dog Fancy in California, the United
Kennel Club, American Kennel Club, American Dog Breeders Association and all
responsible dog owners to ensure purebred dogs continue to exist and our
rights are not taken from us. This lawsuit is to stop animal control
agencies in California from requiring you to turn over your pedigrees for
approval before you are allowed to reproduce canines.

Hey Michelle, your cazy "edit" icon is popping up in unecessary places . . .
