Serving the Jackson, MS. area, Community Animal Rescue & Adoption, Inc. (CARA) is a true no-kill organization that cares for an average of 300 dogs & 80 cats. CARA is operated by volunteers and part time employees; supported by donations from individuals, businesses, and fund raising events; receives no funding from the city, county, state, or federal government.  Brandon Kennel Club supported CARA in 2010 with a donation from the proceeds of our annual dog shows/obedience trials.  Learn more about CARA at   http://carams.org/

  

Brandon Kennel Club of Mississippi provided grants to MS SPAN to assist with low cost spay and neuter services for dogs from Rankin County.  Founded in 2005, MS SPAN was the nation's first statewide spay & neuter coalition of animal protection organizations.  A 501(c)(3) not-for profit corporation, MS SPAN's mission is to reduce euthanasia and suffering of homeless animals by providing low-cost spay & neuter services, engaging the cooperation of communities and raising awareness of animal overpopulation.  For more information about MS SPAN call 1-866-901-7729 or check their website, www.msspan.org

BKC members Betty Hutchinson and Mary Jo Anderson perfom community service with the "Paw Pals" program through the Pearl, MS public library.  In this program, children improve reading skills by reading to certified therapy dogs.  See "Liesl" and "Hexie" with their friends on our club photo page. 

 

 

Brandon Kennel Club proudly supports Second Chance Pet Partners by donating a portion of the proceeds from our yearly conformation shows and obedience trials.  The Hinds County Sherriff's Office Second Chance Pet Partners program utilizes inmates for the training of companion and service dogs to be placed back into the community with disabled and or hearing-impaired individuals.  Inmate trainers have the opportunity to learn valuable pet industry-related vocational skills they can use in obtaining employment when they are released.  Animals rescued through HCSD-SCPP are given a second chance to bring joy to someone who will love and cherish them.  This program is a win-win situation for the dogs and the inmates! 

Brandon Kennel Club supports"Take the Lead" which is a 501(C)(3) organization founded to provide direct services, support and care for people in the sport of purebred dogs who suffer the devestation of life-threatening or terminal illness.
