Attention Parent Clubs: If your club actively rescues dogs, we encourage you to apply for the AKC Humane Fund’s grant. This program reimburses breed rescue programs for some of the expenses associated with rehoming dogs, including veterinary care and supplies. If your Parent Club does not perform rescue services and wishes to recommend an organization that does so on behalf of your breed, please encourage them to apply. (A letter of referral from the parent club on behalf of the applicant is required.) To apply, visit www.akchumanefund.org.
