    What we want

    We want proven, common-sense regulations to protect dogs from lethal traps & snares. Dog safe regulations

    What we do
    We protect dogs from methods of trapping that are done in ways that endanger dog’s lives.

    Who we are
    We are dog lovers from across the state of Minnesota who work with our state legislators, DNR officials, local authorities,
    and other dog enthusiasts to regulate the use of lethal trapping devices to reduce their danger to domestic dogs.

    We are non-partisan trappers, upland game hunters, waterfowl hunters, hounds men, and all kinds of dog lovers
    who want to be free to enjoy the great outdoors without risk of losing our canine companions to lethal trapping methods

    When this issue is resolved, we'll get out of politics and back to what we love the most: spending time in the woods and fields with our dogs.

    Three more steps and your dog is dead. There is a solution.
