We are Paw-sitively Thankful for Our Donors

The AKC Museum of the Dog is grateful for each and every donor that gives to support and grow our mission. We are proud of the support we’ve received from AKC clubs, judges, delegates, breeders, competition participants, the business community and the general public. We’d like to thank our members and donors for their loyalty and enthusiasm, especially with the move back to New York City in 2019.

With this move, we are in need of further support as we launch programming and continue operations in our new location. We look forward to working with new friends that support that vision, giving to ensure the collection is shown to a broader audience, so that the love of all things dog is shared for future generations.
