Our mission is simple
The Kennel Club Charitable Trust (KCCT) is 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
supporting 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.
The KCCT has three objectives, the funding of:
- Science: research into diseases and other health conditions in
- Support: the training of dogs to help humans
- Welfare: the rescue and rehoming of dogs which need help
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.
