Advocacy and D.O.G.S.

In addition to supporting rescues and shelters, Dogs Of A Good Society makes good on its name by advocating for societal policies that help dogs. (And even cats and other animals, too!)

In 2014, for the first time, members and friends of the D.O.G.S. Board attended the Humane Lobby Day the Minnesota Capitol, allied with other animal groups including the Humane Society of the United States.

We met with legislators and asked them to support two key bills: One creating standards for pet breeders and an enforcement mechanism (the “Breeder Bill”), and another creating the opportunity for adoptable dogs and cats that were used in research to be taken in by rescue organizations (the “Beagle Freedom Bill”).

And our efforts paid off! Both historic bills passed the Legislature and were signed into law by the Governor. Next year, we have even bigger plans.

In 2016, we aim to present a resolution to prevent unnecessary and inhumane police shootings towards dogs, with a call to additional police training. We will be attending our local Caucuses on March 1st, 2016, to work with the community and legislation for the cause. More information available, including how to locate your Caucus: Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State. Email us for a copy of the resolution.
