In light of the recent tornadoes across the South, many fanciers and concerned dog owners have asked us how they can help the companion animal victims of these storms.

If you are interested in offering your assistance, we encourage contributions to our AKC Companion Animal Recovery Canine Support and Relief Fund. Started in the wake of 9/11, the fund has donated more than $3 million to search and rescue teams and for companion animal relief during natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina.

Funds will be used to address the needs of companion animals in the area and/or donated to appropriate relief organizations.

We are also working with AKC clubs in the affected areas. If you are an officer of an AKC club that needs assistance or is supporting the relief efforts in your area, please contact communications@akc.org.
