About The Fund

The Breeders Legal Defense Fund is a non-profit organization that was established by a group of concerned pet industry professionals in the Midwest.  The fund is being used exclusively to defend legitimate, quality-conscience breeders who are dedicated to the highest standards of animal husbandry and quality care.  The founders include veterinarians, breeders, state breeder associations, pet distributors, pet retailers and other industry partners who are dedicated to fighting for breeders throughout the United States.


The most pressing need at this time is to raise funds for a lawsuit which has been filed to prevent USDA from releasing confidential personal and business information of breeders to the Humane Society of the United States, initially in Missouri and ultimately in every state.  This would be a terrible, destructive precedent that we must prevent.

Regardless of your role or involvement in the pet industry, your ongoing support for this fund is vitally important.  There are two primary methods which are being used to raise the vital financial support needed to protect professional breeders from those who are determined to put them and everyone else in the industry out of business.

The first is a check-off system whereby pet retailers, distributors and breeders will be checking off a donation per puppy transaction.  The second is simply through periodic donations to the fund by others in the pet industry,  such as manufacturers, veterinarians, vet clinics, rescue groups, groomers and individual concerned citizens like you.
