About NALC
The National Association of Louisiana Catahoulas, Inc. (NALC) is a non-profit organization. It began in 1977 to ensure the continuing line of pure-bred Louisiana Catahoulas, through a program of breeding and registration. This act of preservation for this unique part of Louisiana heritage recognizes the Louisiana Catahoula as the only breed of dog which historically originated in the State of Louisiana. On July 9, 1979, then Gov. Edwin Edwards signed a Bill into Law which was passed by the Louisiana Legislature, making NALC the propagator of – The Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog, The Official State Dog of Louisiana.
