Amendment to the TIBCS COE sign now

The current Code of Ethics (COE) of The International Bengal Cat Society (TIBCS) talks about many of the responsibilities of the breeding membership. All the recommendations shown under Section 3 are intelligent, and show responsible intent when developing a breeding program, making determinations for planned breedings, and ultimately placing the kittens/cats with qualified buyers.

However, this does not address what happens "after-the-fact". While bengals are in the minority of cats seen in rescue situations or found in shelters, it does happen. The need does exist for breeders to sometimes re-evaluate a placement, assist a buyer dealing with a change in their personal situation, or step up and provide assistance to a cat of their breeding which has found itself in a difficult situation.

Therefore, we respectfully submit this Petition, in accordance with the TIBCS ByLaws, Article IX, Section 1, to AMEND the TIBCS Code of Ethics, to reflect such responsible actions from our breeding community:

To AMEND the TIBCS Code of Ethics, Section 3. Breeding, Subsection-Recommendations, to add and make inclusive, the following statement:

....."If I become aware that a cat of my breeding is found to be abandoned, neglected, mistreated, or in need of rescue, I will participate in its rescue, relocation, rehabilitation, and/or rehoming to the best of my ability.".....

Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter, and service to the membership of The International Bengal Cat Society.
