Some cities dealing with restriction on breedings according to the AKC newletter:

Jackson, TN – The Jackson City Council rejected an animal control proposal that included mandatory spay/neuter and other ownership restrictions by a vote of 5-4 on November 3. The AKC supported the work of local fanciers and breeders by sending a letter opposing the changes and notifying local clubs and breeders of the proposed laws. The AKC congratulates the local concerned dog owners who attending the hearing and fought against the proposal.

Kern County, CA - The Kern County Animal Control Department will host several public workshops to allow comment on proposed revisions to the county’s animal control regulations. Proposed changes include a requirement that animals be sterilized if they are impounded three times, increased license fees for intact dogs, definitions and inspections for commercial and noncommercial animal facilities (as well as rescues and animal sanctuaries), higher fees for establishments maintaining intact animals, and changes to the animal care requirements. The AKC GR department has contacted local delegates, judges, club officers and breeders and asked them to attend these meetings.

Lewis County, WA – The Lewis County Commission is considering a limit law to address recent problems with hoarding and is also exploring the possibility of kennel and breeder regulations. The commissioners have expressed a desire to work with local responsible breeders to draft an ordinance that does not negatively impact them. The AKC GR department has sent an email to our local delegates, judges, club officers and breeders encouraging them to offer their expertise and become involved in the drafting process.

Los Angeles, CA –The Los Angeles County Regional Planning Board unanimously rejected a proposal that would have redefined dog kennels and would have led to the end of dog breeding at kennel facilities. The AKC congratulates all the kennel operators, concerned breeders and responsible dog owners who worked hard to educate the commissioners about these issues.
