AKC Museum of the Dog Tribute to K9 Officers and Handlers Fund

This September as the city of New York annually honors our K9 corps and their highly trained handlers, the AKC Museum of the Dog will host a special evening paying tribute to the United States Police Canine Association and the K9 Officers and Handlers of 9/11 NYPD/MTA.


Your support makes us jump for joy!

Any amount helps us further our mission.

Donations can be one-time or recurring, and can be made in the name of a special person or canine companion. Your fully tax-deductible gift is greatly appreciated.



Please join us in honoring Ronald H. Menaker


We remember Ron as a banking executive, sportsman, and Chairman Emeritus of the American Kennel Club Board of Directors, whose business acumen and spirit of innovation were essential in guiding the AKC into the 21st century.
