The American Dog Owners Association Invites Responsible Dog Owners to Participate in a Demonstration on June 3, 2007

Gather at the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. to Support California Pet Owners who Oppose California’s Mandatory Spay/Neuter Bill.

Castleton, NY, May 30, 2007 --( The American Dog Owners Association (ADOA) announced today its sponsorship of a demonstration to be held on Sunday, June 3, 2007, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm EST at the West Front of the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. Responsible pet owners from throughout the United States will gather to shout "no" in opposition to CA AB 1634 - a proposed bill in the California legislature which would require mandatory spaying and neutering of all dogs and cats at four months of age.

The demonstration, titled Shout NO MORE and sponsored by the American Dog Owners Association in conjunction with Responsible Dog Owners of the Eastern States and the Cape Fear APBT Club, is the first of its kind organized to fight legislation that restricts the rights of pet ownership.

“What people do not get is that mandatory spaying and neutering is a simple equation which will result in zero pet population in this country, which is the goal of certain animal rights organizations across the country,” explained spokesperson for the event, Maureen Hill-Hauch. “If this bill passes in California, it could pass in other states,” she continued.

The average American pet owner donates their hard earned money to certain animal rights organizations believing that the money will be used to help animals, but what they are unaware of is that a large portion of their donations are actually being used to fuel legislation across the country that will take away their rights of pet ownership.

The ADOA urges responsible pet owners across the country to support them in opposing proposed bill CA AB 1634 that was composed in attempt to ban dog and cat breeding in the state of California. If passed, this bill promises to result in a dog deficit in the State of California, which will only cause people to purchase dogs from uninspected, often extremely unhygienic and abusive facilities within and outside the United States.
