Although DRAGON is a Michigan-based chapter of the American Singers Club, Inc, with members throughout the United States and Canada. The name D.R.A.G.O.N. stands for the "determined renaissance of the American Singer through growth and organization of the novice”.
Since its founding, DRAGON has remained focused on its original mission of furthering the American Singer canary by recruiting novices into the fancy and providing support and encouragement to both novice and experienced breeders. DRAGON provides assistance to novices seeking to locate quality breeding stock via its stock referral program and education regarding canary-related issues such as breeding, management, showing, etc.
DRAGON publishes a newsletter which includes informational articles about topics such as breeding, molting, illness, exhibiting, and other areas of interest to the American Singer fancier.
DRAGON supports the annual DRAGON Song Trials which are held on the second Saturday of the month of November in Livonia, Michigan.
A number of DRAGON members have well over two decades of experience in the American Singer fancy and there are quite a few current and former officers of the national American Singers Club, Inc. in our ranks. The club's current Head of DRAGON (club President), Judy Snider, is currently the longest serving ASC sanctioned judge in the national club.
