ISAR's Model Statute Regulating Dog Breeding, Facilitation and Sales


ISAR's Model Statute's imposition of tough regulations on breeders, facilitators and commercial retail sales outlets is unapologetically draconian. It is the intention and goal of ISAR, because only in this manner can the dog-trade's participants' appalling, and often illegal, conduct be regulated out of existence once and for all.

Clarks Summit, PA, November 12, 2009 --(PR.com)-- At this very moment, literally countless numbers of dogs, certainly hundreds of thousands, are held captive around the world in wretched conditions, while being used and abused as living breeding machines by conscienceless breeders, facilitators and commercial retail sales outlets whose only concern is for their own profit.

Because much of that abuse occurs in the United States, and because International Society for Animal Rights' self-imposed mandate is the protection of animals, ISAR has prepared a comprehensive Monograph containing a Model Statute Regulating Dog Breeding, Facilitation and Sales. In effect, ISAR's Monograph is a brief in support of the Model Statute. ISAR's approach to the dog breeding problem is revolutionary because the goal is to end virtually all breeding of dogs in the United States and to prohibit the importation of canines bred elsewhere. End the breeding, not perpetuate it.

ISAR's Model Statute's imposition of tough regulations on breeders, facilitators and commercial retail sales outlets is unapologetically draconian. This is ISAR's intention and goal, because only in this manner can the dog-trade's participants' appalling, and often illegal, conduct be regulated out of existence once and for all.
