Join the OPPOSITION aagainst HSUS Anti-Pet,Anti-Animal, Anti-NO KILL and Pass it Forward to Everyone you know please!! See story below re Southern California kennels and their fight against AR laws proposed against kennels, etc.
On September 29, 2009, L.A. county decided that they were going to ban people who have been living on their property, properly licensed and permitted, from continuing to engage in their livelihood of boarding, training and breeding dogs and cats, and also to decrease their property values by possibly hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The kennel owners activated, and the result was
that 28 days later, the L.A. County Planning Commission completely
dismissed the proposed ordinance. The many attending kennel owners noted grumpy frowning faces on the supporters of the ordinance and felt gratified that their logical and polite arguments convinced the commissioners what a farce the ordinance was.
Kennel owners realized that those who, because of
their agenda and philosophy, wanted to disallow the breeding of dogs
or cats would not stop at this. Indeed, a letter received by one of
the kennel owner group showed that that agenda was still being worked
The next obvious step was to organize and legitimize the kennel
owners, not only in L.A. county, but also moving on to all the
Incorporated cities of L.A. county, the biggest one being L.A. City
itself. On November 12, 2009, a meeting was held in Canyon Country,
(near Santa Clarita, Ca) where the group met and immediately went to
work appointing an interim organizational Chair, Secretary and
Before an hour was up, an incorporating committee, a legal
committee, a kennel contact committee, a fundraising committee and a
website committee with chairs and members were formed. Every person
attending volunteered to either chair or be a committee member on one
or more committees. Discussed were various means to contact community
politicians, media and raise public awareness.
It was decided that the organization would be named the Southern
California Kennel and Breeders Association, that the concept would center around the freedom and right to own and breed dogs and cats as a business or personally. There is an open invitation for other groups in southern California to join in a coalition with SCKBA, aimed at halting the progression of those using the political arena for their
own extremist agendas.
While not all who have joined this organization were able to attend
the meeting, the group has new members joining daily and the energy is
building to become an activist group for positive growth.
