The Kennel Club announces emergency relief fund
This emergency relief fund will support rescue centres, training clubs and other canine organisations.

Will support canine organisations and rescues affected by COVID-19

The Kennel Club Charitable Trust and The Kennel Club Educational Trust have announced the establishment of an emergency relief fund to support dog rescue centres and organisations affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Kennel Club Charitable Trust has stated that it will help organisations in the community, such as rescue centres, which require additional support in order to preserve the welfare of the dogs they care for. Additionally, the Kennel Club Educational Trust will support training clubs that have been negatively affected.

In a statement, the Kennel Club also stated that it is currently exploring funding and support arrangements for clubs and canine societies worst hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly those societies affected by cancellations.

Reverend Bill King, Chairman of the Kennel Club Charitable Trust said: “The coronavirus pandemic is devastating for so many communities, including all those involved in dogs. Many of those affected run small but incredibly vital and dedicated organisations, clubs and rescues which make a huge difference for dogs, and now urgently need support to be able to survive these unprecedented times.

“We are only as strong as our community and the Kennel Club and its related charities are fortunate to be able to help those hardest hit through this challenging time.”

The Kennel Club and its charities will announce further details, including information on how to apply, shortly.
