New York, NY – The American Kennel Club (AKC) and AKC Companion Animal
Recovery (AKC/CAR) continue to work closely with the Florida Association of Kennel Clubs (FAKC) to assist animals affected by Hurricane Ivan. Since Hurricane Jeanne hit the Florida coast this past weekend, animals in the southeast region of the U.S. continue to be at risk.

This week the AKC made large donations of flea and tick products to animal shelters in Hendersonville, NC and Dothan, AL and recently sent dozens of crates to the Vero Beach Humane Society and Citrus Animal Services in Inverness, FL.

“The AKC continues to assist The Florida Association of Kennel Clubs by expanding relief efforts to animals in need, not only in Florida but in North Carolina and Alabama as well,” said Dennis B. Sprung, AKC president and CEO. “We continue to monitor the situation with Hurricane Jeanne very carefully and are prepared to assist wherever there is a need.”

To date, significant donations of nwater, microchips, scanners, crates, a water purifier, space blankets, leashes, collars, fencing, batteries, flashlights and film have been made by AKC and AKC/CAR.
