The Shawangunk Kennel Club was founded in 1972 to further the advancement of all breeds of purebred dogs. The Club offers year round dog activities and public services for the community, and raises money to provide support for animal care organizations such as the AKC Health Foundation, Take the Lead Foundation and Puppies Behind Bars.
The SKC usually holds its meetings on the last Thursday of each month at various locations throughout Ulster County, including the Rosendale Recreation Center in Rosendale, New York and Gander Mtn. in Kingston, New York. We offer animal health related seminars and general information programs for pet owners as well as conformation enthusiasts at these meetings. Guest are always welcome to attend.
For those individuals interested in purchasing a purebred puppy, the SKC offers a breeder referral service and as a member of Associated Dog Clubs of New York State, is listed on their website and in their breeder directory which is provided to all local veterinary offices free of charge. SKC also maintains an updated list of breed rescue contacts for those individuals looking to adopt or place an older purebred dog.
