    About Us:

    The Kennel Club is the biggest investor in canine health and welfare in the country. It registers approximately 250,000 pedigree dogs each year and thousands more on its companion dog and activity registers, and it and runs Petlog, the UK's largest lost and found database for microchipped pets. The Club invests the money that it makes back into dogs through the Kennel Club Charitable Trust and the Kennel Club Educational Trust. Its charitable initiatives include supporting rehoming centres and investing in research and the development of DNA tests to help prevent canine diseases. The Kennel Club has its own Genetics Centre at the Animal Health Trust where this work is carried out.
