In addition to honoring Ronan, the Sussex Hills Kennel Club also recently worked with the Morris County Office of Emergency Management to secure a AKC Pet Disaster Relief Trailer.

These trailers, provided through AKC Reunite, contain supplies and provide shelter to community pets in the case of a disaster.

The Kennel Club also has worked with the K-9 unit in the past providing vests, first aid kits, and oxygen masks.
