Kachina Kennel Club has some exciting times coming up. We hope you will join us
for the fun!
Kachina Kennel Club, the first kennel club in
the west valley, was formed in 1975 and held their first all breed show in
1978. The shows with the Turquoise Cluster are January 10th through the 13th 2014
and will be our 65rd and 66th all breed
Kachina Kennel Club, a 501(c) 4 organization, transitioned from being a
licensed club (holding shows under AKC rules) to a Member club, which allows us
to designate a representative (Delegate) to vote in matters of interest to our
Club and Members at AKC Delegate meetings.
Kachina usually meets at 7:00
on the third Tuesday
of each month at Denny's on south side of 51st Ave and Thunderbird.
Our meetings are open to the public. Visitors are enthusiastically welcomed and
encouraged to come a little early and eat!
Special meetings are our Christmas party in December, and our annual elections
and awards banquet in June. Our meetings frequently have a program in
addition to the regular business of the club. Education and topics of interest
to all dog owners and the Club Members and will be covered in some detail.
Kachina donates regularly to a variety of community and dog related
organizations and causes. Some of Kachina KC's
contributions purchased an assistance dog for a child with Spina
Bifeda, Bulletproof jackets for police dogs, a tooth cleaning machine for the
animal shelter, and equipment for the sites where we have had shows. We
were the first Arizona club to donate to 9-1-1 and have donated to
Flood and Fire relief efforts, Animal Shelters and the WestSide Food Bank
regularly. We support Take the Lead.
Our members participate in many dog-related activities in the dog world
and the community such as conformation, obedience, rally, agility, Canine
Ambassador and Therapy Dog and the R.E.A.D. program. Members also
provide conformation and obedience classes.
