American Kennel Club & Partners for Healthy Pets to Promote Canine Health and Well-Being


New York, NY – The American Kennel Club® (AKC®) has joined with the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AMVF) to take part in its Partners for Healthy Pets campaign. As a new Associate Member of the committee, AKC will support the Partnership’s mission of ensuring that pets receive the preventative healthcare they deserve through regular visits to a veterinarian.

“Since our founding 130 years ago, the American Kennel Club has been dedicated to protecting the health and well-being of all dogs,” said Mari-Beth O’Neill, AKC Assistant Vice President of Sport Services. “As part of its membership in the committee, the AKC is happy to educate its community of dedicated dog lovers about the life-changing mission of Partners for Healthy Pets. The collaboration of so many animal health organizations will help the AVMF’s campaign make true strides in reducing the number of preventable diseases among dogs and cats across the nation.”

Led by the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Animal Hospital Association, Partners for Healthy Pets is an unprecedented collaborative alliance of over 100 veterinary associations, colleges of veterinary medicine and animal health companies all committed to a vision of improved overall health for pets. Partners for Healthy Pets provides tools and resources that help communicate the value and benefit of preventive care, enhance the veterinary client relationship, improve the overall quality of preventive healthcare provided for patients and has recently launched an advertising campaign to promote the importance of annual veterinary checkups.
