The Kennel Club Charitable Trust

We are a dog charity that looks after the health and welfare of all dogs.

We make a difference by funding a wide variety of work ranging from research into canine diseases, dog welfare organisations and the promotion of support dogs, all of which give dogs a healthier, happier life.

Founded in 1987, we’ve donated almost £6.5 million to support these initiatives through various dog charity grants, and we couldn’t do all our work without the generosity of our donors.

We are involved in many amazing charities and causes including funding for the Kennel Club Canine Genetics Centre, support of the Bark and Read project to help school children develop their reading skills with the help of dogs, many welfare organisations and we’ve sponsored a number of support dogs in their training.  We have been able to achieve this through major support from the Kennel Club, our partners including Agria Pet Insurance and all sizes of donations from individuals and fundraising activities.

Donate now and help make a difference for dogs in the future:

  • £50 could help provide food and shelter for rescued dogs at one of the shelters the Kennel Club Charitable Trust supports, eg Assisi Animal Sanctuary.
  • £100 could help to sponsor a support dog, e.g. Dogs for the Disabled.
  • £500 could help to fund the equipment needed for canine treatment at an animal teaching hospital, eg The Royal Veterinary College’s Queen Mother Animal Hospital.
  • £1,000 could help identify the genes involved in hereditary canine diseases, e.g. the cooperation between the Kennel Club Genetics Centre and the Animal Health Trust.

  1. I could be sending you a gift aided donation, how do I find out how to send to your organisation?do

  2. i would do a gift aid but you still allow illegally docked dogs in the show room why

  3. Is it compulsory to own the bitch if your going to be an assured breeder ? Thanks

  4. hi we got a gds puppy 10 weeks old from a breeder on saturday late evening 17/10/2015. We have to return to breeder today because she attacked my 9 year old daughter. I stood there and watched my puppy and my daughter while she was doing it she was not mouthing which my breeder kept telling me all puppy does that. what my daughter did was calling her back she ran straight to her little finger and pull it. We had puppy for three days only and breeder refused to refund and insisted we damage her puppy. I am to sure what to do, I cannot have a puppy which my daughter real afraid of and not sure when she will attack her again. the breeder kept saying we make mistake and her puppy was only mouthing. I do understand mouthing for a young puppy but my daughter was not playing with her just call her back from a meter away what had she done wrong. We bought the puppy for £800 only for 3 days and we got the blamed for damage her puppy. Her husband said they will have to train their puppy and not tell the new buyer she have been to a strange home. I do not think this is fair on us and I think I should report we had this puppy for 3 days and she will go for little girls face and finger. ;uckily I stopped her to go for my daughter’s face breeder said puppy was trying to kiss her. if that was a bit it was too late I cannot afford this happen. I am worry the new owner may have little one like us. do not want to see any incident happen to other family. please advice what should I do….

  5. I will take your puppy if you don’t want her anymore please email me with the details I.e her breed and where you are? I’m currently in jersey Channel Islands with no other animals and thank god no children! I’m willing to train the puppy but I agree with your concern, I would be he same if I had a small child. My email;

  6. I agree with concern that a child could be harmed but find it incredible that a 10 week old puppy would do this. Puppies like children have to learn what is acceptable and what is not, we currently have a 6 month old puppy who in excitement still tries to nibble us forgetting all the training in her excitement. Only time and patience with training will enable her to become a well mannered young dog like her companions. I agree with the breeder who has concerns for they have parted with a puppy that in their opinion was a well balanced puppy and not a viscious puppy as you suggest above, you surely must have observed this puppy at the breeders home and its behaviour with your family before deciding on your purchase. I would however have ensured you received your money back when the puppy was assessed and hopefully rehomed. Never in fifty years have I heard of a puppy attacking but have no experience with the GSD. A very sad tale for all concerned
