Charitable Trust Board of Trustees

Our Trustees bring a passion for the breed and considerable knowledge and experience to the ACKCSC Charitable Trust. Grant applications are reviewed by the Trustees on a regular basis. Through the generous support of our club’s members and friends of the breed worldwide, a significant number of Veterinary Research Projects have been funded. These studies have been instrumental in improving the health of our dogs, and provide a foundation for future research.

Please consider making a donation today; the dog you help may very well be the one sitting on your lap.
