Purina Parent Club Partnership Program

GRCA National Specialty 2015

HERE'S A SPECIAL OFFER FROM PURINA! 

The Golden Retriever Club of America participates in the Purina Parent Club Partnership (PPCP) Program to earn funding for canine health studies, education and/or rescue efforts that will benefit our breed. For information on becoming a PPCP member, click here to be taken to the PPCP page.

Over the past eleven years, this program has earned a total of $182,369 for GRCA. We can do better for 2015!

* 2006: $14,938

Through the PPCP Program, Purina and the AKC Canine Health Foundation work together to help parent clubs address priority health concerns for their breeds and areas not previously funded. Here's how the PPCP Program works:

Pro Club members redeem weight circles from bags of participating Purina brand dog foods. Purina tracks these weight circle submissions, and for every $100 of qualifying weight circle points earned by Pro Club members, Purina donates $10 to the participating national parent breed club.

Points are accumulated throughout a calendar year, and in February, a check representing 10% of the value of the submitted weight circles for the year is evenly split. Fifty percent will go to the Canine Health Foundation, in the name of the Golden Retriever Foundation (designated as a GRCA/GRF donor advised fund) and will be specifically directed for research of Golden Retriever health issues. These monies are eligible to be matched up to 100 percent by the Canine Health Foundation if it meets the Foundations funding guidelines. The remaining fifty percent will be issued to GRCA to be used for rescue, education and/or research as determined by the Club.
