PLEASE DONATE TO THE CDF LEGAL FUND

Help protect our rights to breed and even own dogs!  Please support the Connecticut Dog Federation's Legal Fund. This Fund pays our lobbyist to monitor the State of Connecticut Legislature when in session for any bills that might affect dogs and their owners/keepers.

This is very important to protect our right to breed or own dogs. When needed, our Lobbyist knows the correct approaches and the correct people to discuss our views with to support good legislation or to ward off any legislation that might be injurious to our best interests. This is very expensive, but also very necessary.

These donations are tax deductible, as CDF has non-profit status from the IRS.  All donations, unless otherwise indicated, will be acknowledged.

Please make your check payable to: Connecticut Dog Federation, Inc. & send to the CDF Treasurer at the address below.
