ABOUT MAPBD


MICHIGAN ASSOCIATION
for
PURE BRED DOGS
www.mapbd.org

Michigan Association for Pure Bred Dogs (MAPBD) is a Michigan non-profit
organization, founded in 1964 and incorporated in 1965.  

Its membership consists of individuals as well as several dozen dog clubs, the
majority of which are AKC Licensed and Member Clubs.  This includes
all-breed kennel clubs, specialty clubs, obedience clubs, agility clubs, herding
clubs, and lure coursing clubs.  
MAPBD
has been working
for responsible
dog laws
in Michigan
for over 50 years!
There are no paid staff members and all work is accomplished by volunteer
efforts.

From its beginning, MAPBD has promoted responsible dog ownership in
Michigan.  However, with each passing year, due to increased pressure from
well-funded national animal rights groups, MAPBD has had to dramatically
increase its effective volunteer lobbying efforts.  As a result MAPBD must
budget significant amounts of money to consistently lobby at both state and
municipal levels to keep Michigan a dog-friendly state.

We invite you to explore our website and learn more about us and the work
our members do to protect Michigan dogs.  

We also urge you and your club to get involved and
Join MAPBD.
    YOUR SUPPORT HELPS US
    KEEP MICHIGAN
    A DOG-FRIENDLY STATE!
