LDKC donates a portion of membership fees to the Canine Health Foundation.
LDKC provides financial support to the YWCA of Maricopa County, Valley West Senior Center's "WE FEED FOUR FEET" program that provides dog food and veterinary care (spay and neuter) to the pets of homebound seniors who participate in the Center's Home Delivered Meals program. For information on this program, contact Joan Brainard at JBrainardYWCA@aol.com.

LDKC supports responsible dog ownership AND responsible breeding. The organization does NOT support the passage of PAWS legislation.
The Lost Dutchman Kennel Club has donated funds for the Apache Junction Police Department to purchase a new bite suit for use in training the canine officer at the department. When asked by LDKC Vice-president Robert Churchey what was needed to help out the canine unit, the human officer responded that they needed a new bite suit because they were afraid the one in use was so worn that the dog might break its teeth. If the Club members had not been on board before, that comment certainly turned the tide! The Club has made a commitment to continue to provide financial support to AJPD's Canine Unit over the next several years as part of its giving-back to the community.
