OK, we confess. Our area of expertise is registration papers for dogs. And dogs shouldn’t need documentation to have a place in our homes and communities.

You know the kind of papers we mean: The ones that the AKC gives out to prove that a dog has “pure bloodlines.” Every year, breeders produce more and more purebreds even as millions of wonderful, healthy, loving animals must be euthanized in animal shelters because there aren’t enough homes for but the tiniest fraction of them. We hope that you will join us in decrying registration papers for dogs!
