Abridged meeting to be held on 30th June - The originally arranged date for the Kennel Club AGM was May 12th but, after the Government’s Coronavirus lockdown was announced, the KC advised Members in April that it had decided to postpone the meeting to 30th June – the latest possible date according to the KC’s Articles of Association.
The Kennel Club is urging local councils to do more to help dog walkers stay safe and responsible during the current lockdown period and ensure they can adhere to the social distancing measures following the passage of emergency Government legislation, which restricts people from leaving their homes other than for essential activities including taking daily exercise.
The Kennel Club has advised its Members that, because of the Coronavirus outbreak and the restrictions on unnecessary travel and personal contact introduced by the Government, its AGM, originally due to be held on May 12th, has been postponed (technically adjourned) until Tuesday June 30th at 11.30 a.m.
The introduction of Lucy’s law has been welcomed by The Kennel Club and the RSPCA. The ground breaking law to end the commercial third party sales of puppies came into law last Monday in England. It means that anyone wanting to buy a new puppy must buy directly from a breeder or consider adopting from a recognised rescue centre.
