All of us at the Kennel Club Charitable Trust have a passion for keeping tails wagging. Ever since our foundation over three decades ago, our aim has been simple; to make a real difference to the health of dogs and dog welfare, no matter what their breed or background.
We appreciate how caring for our canine companions has an incalculable impact on the people whose lives they touch. Our work with dog charities throughout the UK gives us a unique understanding of how best to deliver projects that benefit both dogs and their two-legged companions. From investing in ground-breaking canine science and research, to funding medical and support dog training programmes and life-saving dog welfare projects, our goal remains the same; to bring cutting-edge technology, compassion and kindness to the space where dogs and people meet.
“The more I see of my fellow man, the more I love my dog. Police dogs, Guide dogs, Rescue dogs, Sniffer dogs, Sheep dogs, Guard dogs, comforters to the sick and bereaved, or simply a friend – we really do owe ALL our dogs.”
