It’s time again to recognize state legislators and Congressional representatives who support responsible dog owners and breeders.
Has your state or federal elected official taken a stand to protect responsible dog ownership? Here’s a way to express your appreciation.
Nominate a deserving legislator for the James S.
Holt Memorial Award for the Promotion of Responsible Dog Ownership in Legislation.
This award, also known as the “Legislator of the Year” award, is a wonderful way to recognize lawmakers who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to promoting responsible dog ownership and breeding, the well-being of all dogs, and the advancement of dogs in your community or
We depend on you—individuals, AKC club members, and federations—to identify, nominate, and present awards to deserving legislators.
The AKC selects honorees from among the nominations received and provides official AKC “Legislator of the Year” rosette awards for you to present to your representative at dog shows/trials, public education events, Responsible Dog Ownership Days, or a location of their choice.
This award is an excellent way for you, as constituents, to honor the legislators you work with and build on your existing relationships.
