MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION AND BREEDER
The Sacramento Council of Dog Clubs, Inc.
P.O. Box 215126, Sacramento, CA 95821
To: All Dog Clubs And Individual Breeders
The Sacramento Council of Dog Clubs, Inc., was established in
1970 as a not-for-profit organization to support dedicated dog
fanciers and their activities. We are a club of clubs; our
members are a number of Northern California AKC all-breed and
specialty clubs who share the goal of educating the public on
responsible pet ownership. We put people in touch with
responsible breeders and clubs so they can find quality puppies
and dogs, and not have to purchase them from pet stores that buy
from puppy mills.
The Council publishes the annual Pink Book, a directory of
breed clubs and reputable individual breeders which is mailed to
hundreds of veterinarians, breeders, clubs, supply stores, and
pet shops in Northern California and Nevada. Dog owners and
puppy buyers can log on to our web site
to learn about ethical breeding practices, to find a breeder or
rescue program, or to seek advice on any dog-related issue or
problem. To introduce the public to quality purebreds, we
sponsor breeder showcases whenever possible. For breeders and
fellow fanciers, we offer a yearly educational symposium on
topics of current interest. We also hold one or more fun matches
annually to raise funds to support our educational activities.
We are concerned about attacks on the dog fancy by humane groups
who mistakenly think that responsible breeders are to blame for
the unwanted pet over-population. We therefore monitor
legislation to protect our hobby from those who see no
difference between us and the puppy mills and backyard breeders.
We also work to educate the public on responsible breeding and
to prove that responsible breeders of purebred dogs have done
more to reduce unwanted pets than to add to the over-population.
It is our plan to educate the general public concerning the
spaying and neutering of all cross-bred dogs as well as many
pure bred dogs. It has long been the credo of the dog fancy only
to breed the very best! We also want to teach the public that a
well-trained dog is a wonderful pet to own, and that they must
take responsibility of training their dog as they take the
responsibility of teaching their children.
If your dog club aspires to these goals, please consider joining
the Sacramento Council of Dog Clubs, Inc. Our common goal will
benefit from our combined voices. If you are an individual
breeder and wish to be listed with the Council's Breeder
Referral Service, select that option listed below.
The Council’s general membership meets on the second Monday of
January, March, May, September, and November. Individual breeders are
welcome to attend our general membership meetings as our guests.
