Preserve Wildlife Pens in North Carolina is a legislative initiative designed to raise funds to support the NC Sporting Dog Association's efforts to protect wildlife pens.  A bill entitled "Study Fox Laws" House Bill #755 passed the legislature in June, 2011.  The Study is being conducted by the NC Wildlife Resources Commission.  They must report to the legislature by April, 2012. 

Our lobbyists monitor all legislation in Raleigh and plan to participate in the Fox Study meetings. 

The effort to preserve wildlife pens is led by James Ray, W.A. West, and Pete Warren.  "Preserve Wildlife Pens in North Carolina" is a division of the NC Sporting Dog Association, Inc.  For more information, call Pete Warren directly at (252) 286-9808.
