In the past several years, the Wheaten club’s philanthropy has helped animal communities in time of disaster caused by such events as fire, floods and tornado.  Supporting the AKC Reunite program, local dog clubs and animal enthusiasts have donated a relief trailer in Adams County.  This trailer will be mobilized in case of future disasters.  The Wheaten club philanthropy is delighted to be part of this exciting program.

The trailers house and deliver essential supplies such as fans, lighting and generators; cleaning supplies; maintenance items; and animal care items including crates and carries, AKC Reunite microchips and an AKC Reunite universal microchip scanner as well as bowls, collars and leashes. These supplies can be used as co-location shelters, where people can evacuate with their pets, as well as emergency animal shelters for displaced animals.

For more in-depth information, visit the website at www.akcreunite.org.  The Board is excited to be part of a fund that benefits animal communities in Colorado.

News update Sept 2017

It has come to the attention of our The Greater Denver Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Club that several matching grants at $10,000 each have been set up through the AKC Reunite Program to assist dogs as a result of Harvey.  One of these grants has already been met!  

Your donations and dues to our club permit us to set aside funds for our ongoing Philanthropy Program.  As a result, our club has donated $500 toward the AKC Reunite Program and the matching grant will increase this amount to $1,000.  Attached is a release from the AKC giving further details on their efforts.
