If so, read on about this valuable program that can save you money, plus earn valuable funds for Pomeranians and the APC!

The Purina® Parent Club Program

Canine health is important to all of us. Eradicating diseases that afflict dogs to help them live longer and healthier lives is a key priority. That’s why the American Pomeranian Club is participating in the Purina Parent Club Partnership (PPCP) Program. Purina is the first pet food manufacturer to step forward to financially support National Parent Breed Clubs to help raise money to fund canine health studies.

This program is truly a WIN-WIN program! Beyond the benefits you personally receive as a Purina Pro Plan member, your national breed club benefits, and the entire Pomeranian breed benefits!

The PPCP Program works through Purina’s loyalty program, Purina Pro Club®. Pro Club members will earn dollars for to be used for health studies, rescue and/or educational efforts. All you need to do is declare for the Pomeranian breed. As a member of Pro Club, you earn valuable Purina Points for every purchased pound of participating Purina® brand dog foods. The PPCP Program allows members to earn 10% of the value of all points from valid weight circles credited to their Pro Club accounts for our breed club (weight circle redemption form). For example, for every $100 worth of qualifying weight circle points earned by our Pro Club members, Purina will donate $10.00. The money will be split so that 50% is donated to the American Pomeranian Club and 50% is donated to the Canine Health Foundation.

Canine Health Foundation Matching Funds

Through the PPCP Program, Purina and the AKC Canine Health Foundation work together to help the APC address priority health concerns for Pomeranians.

The donation from this program that goes to the AKC Canine Health Foundation is eligible to be matched up to 100 percent by the Canine Health Foundation. That means that more money can be applied toward research on health issues that are specific to Pomeranians.

The goal of Purina and the AKC Canine Health Foundation is to provide funding and resources to help breed clubs accomplish more in learning the causes of health conditions that may shorten a dog's life. Ultimately, the knowledge gained from canine health studies may help our dogs live longer, healthier lives.
