Welcome to the Shawangunk Kennel Club

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 Puppies Behind Bars.

For those individuals interested in purchasing a purebred puppy, the Shawangunk Kennel Club offers a breeder referral service and as a member of the 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. Shawangunk Kennel Club also maintains an updated list of breed rescue contacts for those individuals looking to adopt or place an older purebred dog.
