Special Newsletter for Legislators

With the new legislative session starting this month, we're planning a special newsletter to be snail mailed to all Massachusetts State Legislators. We want to highlight the good work that clubs across the Commonwealth do for their communities. Please submit articles and photos as soon as possible.

Membership
Does your kennel/breed club belong?
Do you belong as an individual?
Are you helping to fight unfair dog legislation?
Are you helping your community pass dog ordinances
that all of us can live with?
Are you helping in the effort to maintain the existence
of “hobby” breeders as opposed to commercial breeders?

If you answered “no” to any of the above questions, you
can start helping by becoming an active Member Club (see list below) or Individual Member of MassFed.

With new dog legislation being worked on and introduced almost daily, we need to be extremely pro-active in order to ensure that our hobby/sport of breeding and exhibiting dogs is protected. Please review the list of member clubs link. If you belong to a club that IS NOT listed please print a copy of our latest newsletter, take it to your next club meeting and encourage your club to join MassFed. If you are not a member please consider joining MassFed as an individual. The larger our numbers grow and the more we communicate the better our chances become of stopping bad dog legislation.

We always welcome new members! Join MassFed!
MassFed publishes a newsletter sent to homes quarterly beginning February, May, August, and November as part of your membership. Volunteer opportunities are available during the year.

If you have news you feel is appropriate and supports the ideals of this organization, please submit it at any time to the newsletter editor via fax, USPS mail or e-mail.
