ACC Club Information
The American Coton Club (ACC), the Home of the Rare Breed Coton de Tulear, 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. ACC offers Coton owners and breeders a voice and a choice. ACC is open to everyone; anyone can join who shares the ACC philosophy of health and education, ethical behavior, and doing only what is best for their Coton de Tulear and the breed. Members come from Europe, Canada, South America, the continental U.S. and Puerto Rico. We assume anyone interested in ACC has an interest in Cotons and their welfare.
ACC 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. ACC does not compete with other clubs for members. Owners and breeders, whether presently affiliated with other organizations or not, are welcome in ACC. ACC recognizes that members may have concerns from time to time and encourages contacting a Board Member to discuss any problems.
ACC is a non profit 501(c) (3) public charity organization. It is tax exempt and any donations made to ACC are tax deductible on the donor's federal income tax form. ACC accepts donations and makes grants to worthy Coton de Tulear causes in line with our mission statement.
