As a dog breeder and/or enthusiast, you are probably very
aware of the issues we all face trying to preserve our rich
heritage and ensure a bright future for dogs everywhere.
Since 2002, thousands of fellow dog breeders and enthusiasts
have chosen to have an impact by feeding Purina brand dog foods,
participating in Purina Pro Club and declaring their
participation in the Purina Parent Club Partnership (PPCP)
Program. When you enroll in the PPCP Program, Purina will match
the value of the weight circles you submit by 10%. This in no
way impacts your personal rewards.
Half of the matching earnings each year are pre-designated for
canine health research and contribute to supporting Canine
Health Foundation grants in which researchers aim to better
understand the genetics behind many conditions affecting our
dogs. The other half is eligible to provide supplemental funding
of canine health research or may be used to fund educational
and/or rescue efforts. The PPCP Program has raised in excess of
$2.8 million for canine health research, education and rescue
