We continue work with our lobbyist to protect the legal interests of dogs, their owners, and their breeders. We organized as a federation at the first of the year in 2010 and were immediately met with 32 newly proposed bills that required our immediate attention, and the need continues to represent dog owners monthly at the State Capital. We are grateful for the  generous donations from many individuals in the state as well as these organizations :

  • Weimaraner Club of Illinois - 
  • Medallion Rottweiler Club 
  • Sandemac Kennel Club 
  • Illinois Dog Clubs and Breeders Association 
  • Elgin Kennel Club  
  • Illinois Capitol Kennel Club 
  • Belle-City Kennel Club
  • Lincolnwood Training Club For German Shepherd Dogs
  • Greater Chicagoland Papillon Club
  • LaSalle Brittainy Club



We will  continue to protect Illinois residents' rights to own dogs and educate dog owners, their communities, and their legislative representatives on the importance of dog ownership. Thank you for your support.  We hold an IRS designation of 501(c)4 .
