American Coton Club Information
The American Coton Club (ACC), the Home of the Rare Breed Coton de Tuléar®, is an independent advocate for Cotons. It was established in the year 2000 as an educational and informative service organization by a group of dedicated Coton owners and breeders interested in breed health and preservation. The American Coton Club offers Coton owners and breeders a voice and a choice. The American Coton Club is open to everyone; anyone can join who shares the American Coton Club philosophy of health and education, ethical behavior, and doing only what is best for their Coton de Tuléar and the breed. Members come from Europe, Canada, South America, the continental U.S. and Puerto Rico. We assume anyone interested in the American Coton Club has an interest in Cotons and their welfare.
The American Coton Club is a full service member operated Coton club, and in 2003 organized into a new structure with a Constitution and Bylaws in order to be better able to serve the needs of all Coton owners. The American Coton Club does not compete with other clubs for members. Owners and breeders, whether presently affiliated with other organizations or not, are welcome in the American Coton Club. The American Coton Club recognizes that members may have concerns from time to time and encourages contacting a Board Member to discuss any problems.

It is tax exempt and any donations made to the American Coton Club are tax deductible on the donor's federal income tax form. The American Coton Club accepts donations and makes grants to worthy Coton de Tuléar causes in line with our mission statement.
