Publish for Comment: Proposed Breed Standard Amendments Re: The American Cocker Spaniel
January 30, 2009

Late yesterday, The Canadian Kennel Club announced that it would be, once again, adding support funding for the Supreme Court challenge of Ontario Bill 132. The CKC had donated $5,000 in 2007 and yesterday, announced that an additional $8,000 contribution would be made to the Banned Aid Coalition, in support of this current challenge.

The Banned Aid Coalition has witnessed Canada-wide, dog-owner support as they seek to raise immediate funds to pay outstanding legal fees and secure their day with the SUPREME COURT of Canada. The constitutional challenge of Ontario Bill 132, the “pit bull” ban, has not ended yet! Your response has exceeded the $67,000 goal to cover the outstanding fees and before close of business January 31, Banned Aid will file for the Leave of Appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada. Estimated costs of the filing alone will run in the neighbourhood of $30,000, but the Coalition hasn't let up, and neither can we.    

“We can’t thank The Canadian Kennel Club, its Members, and Clubs enough,” said Banned Aid Treasurer, Cathy Prothro. “The response has been remarkable!”

Having raised and paid $650,000 to date, Banned Aid, through the “Dollars for Dogs” campaign, looked to all dog owners as their front-line contributors. “Now” continued Prothro, “the next step will be to continue pulling together in the hope the appeal is accepted. Should we be granted the go-ahead, our efforts will turn to raising the additional $70,000 needed for legal preparation, research, and appearance for the actual proceedings.”

“Dollars for Dogs” encourages each and every dog owner to simply contribute $1.00 for every dog they own. The campaign hit the cyber world Saturday, January 11 as a last resort effort.

Updates will be posted right here on the CKC website so you can see your efforts grow in support of this cause.

To respond now with your “Dollar for Dogs” donation on behalf of the dogs you’ve loved, please use the Paypal donate button via or for larger contributions send directly to:

If the Supreme Court hearing does not happen, then the door of breed specific legislation will be forever open. Help close the door.
