The Kennel Club Charitable Trust is united with the rest of the world in its sympathy and support for the Ukranian people and their dogs, as a result of the invasion by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

We wish to support those dogs and their breeders and owners from Ukraine, who are in need, and have set up a special appeal for donations that will be sent to the FCI (Federation Cynologique Internationale), which is in a position to help via its network of kennel clubs in Ukraine and neighbouring countries.

The support we have received so far for this Appeal has been incredible; a testament to all those who care about dogs and their owners in need of help. Last week, we had a most incredible donation of $100,000 (approximately £76,000) from long-term supporters of the Trust, Vernon and Shirley Hill, supported of course by their beloved Yorkshire terrier, Sir Duffield. You can read more about the gift and progress of the Appeal and the difference it is making here

Thanks to Mr & Mrs Hill's gift, and all the others that are flooding in daily from dog lovers and groups across the UK, our total raised stands at over £241,000. Over £130,000 has already been sent to the FCI and is having a direct impact on the ground. Further transfers will be made in the coming days.

Due to the level of support we are receiving, and the public's continued desire to help, we are keeping this Appeal open and are pushing to reach a £250,000 target. Therefore if you would like to donate, or hold a fundraising event to raise funds you can still do so and we will ensure funds are channelled to the FCI as they come in. If you are holding a sponsored event you can set up a Facebook fundraiser. Please do alert us of your fundraising activity so we can share posts and the good news of the difference we are making for dogs, together.

You can donate here. Gifts will automatically be ring-fenced for this appeal.
