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
April 5th through the 8th 2013
and will be our 63rd and 64th all
breed conformation shows.
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 7:30 on the third Thursday of each month
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
