The American Kennel Club Launches AKC PupPals Program

–Program designed to provide canine comfort to children —

Raleigh, NC- The American Kennel Club (AKC®), the world’s largest dog registry, leading industry authority and advocate for dogs, is proud to announce the launch of the AKC PupPals Program.

The AKC PupPals Program provides dog owners a unique opportunity to uplift a child who is seeking the comfort only a dog can provide.

A parent/legal guardian may request an AKC PupPal for a child that may suffering from an illness, the illness or death of a loved one (human or pet), the deployment of a parent, or otherwise going through a difficult time. In order to serve this need, AKC Public Education is seeking help from dog owners. Owners may utilize an online form to submit a photo of and information about their dog.

AKC Public Education will utilize this information to create and send a card to the child. The card will include facts about the breed, an owner provided photo, fun information about the dog, and a personalized letter to the child.  All dogs are welcome to participate.

“AKC Public Education is always seeking ways to highlight the importance of the human-canine bond and bring communities together. The AKC PupPals Program is another way to accomplish that and we look forward to providing children with the comfort of a canine friend,” says Meredith Saraceno, Public Education Manager.
