Welcome to the American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club Charitable Health Trust website!

Love your dog? Please consider joining us in our fight to improve the lives of our beloved spaniels. You can make a difference by supporting our efforts through donations, jewelry purchases, and attending or donating to our annual auction held in connection with the Club’s National Specialty each spring. Together we can address problems like mitral valve disease, syringomyelia (SM), and other health issues.  Our dogs make a difference in our lives – let’s make a difference in theirs!

Many of the research projects we have funded also have human applications for “Dog’s Best Friend!”  Whether you are a veterinarian, breeder, owner or potential owner of this wonderful little spaniel, we hope you find the information included informative and interesting.  We do have some very important current studies that we will be posting in the near future, so please check back in soon.

If you are actively engaged or preparing to do research that directly or indirectly relates to health issues affecting Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, please check out our Grants section of our website.  Your next research project just might be funded by the ACKCSC Charitable Health Trust!

Thank you for your support - we can't do it without you!

Would you like to make a donation to support our efforts?


Auction donations make a difference!

All types of items can be donated to the Silent Auction! Hand-crafted, artwork, handbags, home decor, gift certificates, etc. all make wonderful auction items. Find an item you love? Buy a second to donate to the Charitable Trust! We can't have successful auctions if we don't have special items to bid on. Your auction items truly DO make a difference!
