THE WESTMINSTER KENNEL CLUB
The Westminster Kennel Club, established in 1877, is America's oldest non-profit organization dedicated to the sport of dogs. The Club hosts the iconic Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the second-longest, continuously held sporting event in the U.S., and since 1948, the longest nationally televised live dog show. Supporting canine health, members of the sport and dog world community are part of an ongoing tradition. The Club’s mission, which enhances the lives of all dogs, celebrates the companionship of dogs, promotes responsible dog ownership, and breed preservation.
