About the Greeley Kennel Club
In 1950, a group of breeders and enthusiasts met to organize the Greeley Kennel Club for the purpose of promoting the breeding and showing of AKC pure-bred dogs, bringing to perfection their natural high qualities for conformation, field and obedience, and setting the standards of influence, always protecting and advancing the interest of AKC pure-bred dogs.

Greeley Kennel Club provides publications and a monthly newsletter. The public is invited to our monthly meetings which often include programs on some aspect of dog care or training.
A portion of the proceeds from Greeley Kennel Club events is given to a variety of organizations including the Island Grove Park Authority for the improvement of that park (Island Grove Park being the site of our dog shows), and canine health research and legislation. Through local 4-H Chapters, Greeley Kennel Club endows college scholarships and provides County Fair awards, and also offers employment to local youth at our shows. Additionally, funds are generously donated to AKC Canine Health Foundation, canine search and rescue groups, and other worthy recipients in order to benefit the community and animal world as a whole.
