Clubs in the News

Pets in Queen Anne’s county, Maryland will be a little safer now that the county has obtained an AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailer. The trailer’s purchase was made possible by more than $22,000 in donations from Queen Anne’s county and the members of the local Talbot Kennel Club, as well as the American Shetland Sheepdog Association Foundation, the Welsh Springer Spaniel Club of America, the Pharaoh Hound Club of America, and AKC Reunite, the nation’s largest non-profit pet identification and recovery service. The official presentation of the trailer was held last week and covered by The Star Democrat.

We work continually with our specialty clubs to support their success as well as the success of the all-breed clubs. We experienced a big drop while the economy was at its worst, but we are bouncing back now.
