President's Message

FAKC President's Message

January 2018

By Susan Smith

The Orlando shows are history. Hopefully, you supported the host club shows (Brevard Kennel Club, Central Florida Kennel Club & Space Coast Kennel Club) as well as the performance events, Meet the Breeds and Royal Canin events.

During the Christmas and New Year holiday many enjoyed time with family and friends both of two and four legged varieties making memories.

The Brooksville shows are fast approaching (January 11-21, 2018) at Florida Classic Park. Please take advantage of the health clinics for the betterment of your breeding program and your dogs' health. Be sure to bring some cold weather gear for you and your dogs as winter is here and it gets cold and windy on the hill.

Our state legislative session starts on January 9, 2018 with March 9, 2018 as the last day of the regular session. There are several animal bills proposed. FAKC will be addressing many of them and will request your involvement with letters, phone calls and a trip or two to Tallahassee as necessary.

2017 was a busy year for legislation especially on the local level. For those who fought the good fight for our dogs and owners' rights, you are to be commended. For those sitting on the side line you are actually helping the extremists.

Welcome 2018. It's already starting off with extremes. Judy is looking for help as we move to use F.S. 823.15 to educate the state officials on the lack of oversight and enforcement of regulations for so-called non-profits operating as humane organizations and rescues. We need and want your help and commitment with this project.

A reminder that if your club has events, please send the information to the FAKC webmaster to be posted on our web page (fakc.org) and FB page.

Until next time stay warm and stay tuned to FAKC,

Sincerely,
Susan Smith, President
