The American Kennel Club Garners The Support of 126 Legislators As Honorary Chairs For Meet The Breeds

New York, NY- The American Kennel Club (AKC®), the world’s largest purebred dog registry and leading advocate for dogs, is pleased to announce that more than 120 legislators from New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut are sharing their commitment to responsible dog ownership this month by serving as honorary chairs for the Meet & Compete event hosted by the American Kennel Club and Westminster Kennel Club presented by Purina Pro Plan, which is part of Westminster Week. The legislators range from members of the U.S Congress to state legislators and assemblymen.

The AKC Meet the Breeds event celebrates responsible dog ownership and features the opportunity for the public to personally meet and learn about more than 150 different breeds of dogs and cats from nationally-recognized breed experts. The popular annual event takes place on Saturday, February 10 at Piers 92 and 94 in New York City. Many of the dogs on hand will also be participating in the famous Westminster Kennel Club dog show on Monday and Tuesday, February 12 and 13.

“We are excited and grateful for these lawmakers who continue to demonstrate their commitment to responsible dog ownership,” says Sheila Goffe, Vice President of Government Relations for the AKC. “Responsible dog ownership is the best way to ensure that every dog gets a safe and happy home.”
