The Kennel Club Charitable Trust

Introduction to the Trust

The Kennel Club Charitable Trust (KCCT) was founded in 1987 and is one of the largest trusts dedicated to the health and welfare of all dogs.

The KCCT supports dog welfare charities, including Kennel Club Breed Rescue organisations that re-home dogs throughout the UK as well as supporting those that carry out important work in identifying and improving dog health.

Since 1987 the KCCT has donated over £11 million to support dogs through various dog charity and research grants, and it couldn’t do all its work without the generosity of its donors.

The KCCT has been involved in many amazing charities and causes including funding for the Kennel Club Canine Genetics Centre. It has assisted many welfare organisations in improving their facilities and sponsored numerous support dogs in their training. It has only been able to achieve this through major support from the Kennel Club, its partners and donations of all sizes from individuals and fundraising activities for which the KCCT is extremely grateful.
