California Responsible Pet Owners’ Coalition/CaRPOC was founded by a group of like-minded animal lovers to fight oppressive anti-animal legislation in the State of California. Our founding supporters include pet owners, rescue volunteers, working dog owners, service and therapy animal owners and clients, trainers, veterinarians, as well as show cat and dog breeders and enthusiasts.
We have come together with the single goal of fighting anti-pet legislation. Over time, we have expanded our concerns to include
additional domestic species as well as agricultural animals.
We recognize that a few people can’t be everywhere, so we do our best to support the development of local grassroots groups. Our philosophy is to,
“teach a (wo)man how to fish” rather than to try to do all the “fishing” ourselves.
We hope that you will join us in this effort
