Community Concerns

The community is concerned about whether their animals and/or children are really protected from abuse and neglect. 


-In the late 1980s, the Association was accused by Bob Barker and the United Activists for Animal Rights of condoning animal cruelty on the set of Project X and in several other media projects. +Each year a series of dogs are awarded the Hero Dog Awards, given to dogs that have contributed substantially to human society.
