Pet Owners are Under Attack!

Within the United States, pet owners are under attack. Unscrupulous anti-pet extremists are waging a battle to eliminate pet ownership. They are extremely well funded and have introduced hundreds of legislative bills in dozens of states to severely restrict pet owner rights.

Dogs and Cats have always been an important part of the American way of life. Pet owners care for, cherish and share our homes with our pets, who provide us with unconditional devotion and quality of life.

Therefore, we the people affirm:

  • We have the freedom and the right to choose and own the dog or cat that is best suited for our family, without regard to origin, breed, sex or pedigree.
  • We have the right to protect and nurture our pets with the understanding that they belong to us and are therefore our private property
  • We have the right to protection from Government interference into our privacy regarding decisions about our pets.
  • We have the right to be protected from threats and intimidation, illegal search, seizure and unnecessary impoundment of our dogs or cats.
  • We have the right to be informed of how our pet tax and licensing dollars are spent.
  • We have the right to protest pet laws regarding unreasonable or restrictive licenses, fees or fines.
  • We have the right to require Government to conduct open and impartial hearings, and thorough research prior to voting on laws that could affect the health and safety of our dogs and cats.
  • We have the right to utilize our dogs for hunting, herding, law enforcement, military, crime prevention, search and rescue, to guide or assist the physically and mentally impaired, to guard our property, and the myriad of tasks for which they are trained and suited.
  • We have the right to demand public resources be provided for the exercise and enjoyment of our pets.
  • We have the right to require public information regarding pet safety and education be provided for the interest, information and enlightenment of all people of the community.
