Warrenton Kennel Club and the Community
As part of our mission, in addition to putting on dog shows showcasing our wonderful canines and holding community dog training classes, the Warrenton Kennel Club supports various community dog-related activities. Here are some:
On October 2, 2018 the Warrenton Kennel Club presented to the Fauquier County Sheriff K9 Unit a check for $3,000 to help the department buy a new K9 dog. One of their K9 dogs will be retired and new dogs cost a great deal of money. The Warrenton Kennel Club wanted to help the acquisition of a new K9 officer who will provide a great deal of support to the Fauquier County Community.

In May 2014 WKC donated 20 life-saving Pet Oxygen mask kits to be distributed to all fire departments and EMS departments in Fauquier County.
In March 2015 WKC donated 5 pet oxygen mask kits to Madison County and Brandy Station fire departments.
Participation in the AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day in September.
Warrenton Kennel Club donated copies of the book “If I Ran the Dog Show” to every elementary school and library in Fauquier County.
The WKC donated the money to buy vests for the two Fauquier canine officers shown in these photos. These vests were custom made for each dog and provide needed protection in their work.
The Warrenton Kennel Club was featured in the February 2014 issue of Warrenton Liefestyle Magizine. The article touched on many of the activities, classes, and donations that the Warrenton Kennel Club has contributed to the Fauquier Community.
