Additionally, the AKC is working with the Houston Kennel Club and the Florida Association of Kennel Clubs (FAKC) to determine where shelters and staging areas will be established. If your club is in need of assistance or you know a shelter that needs help, please contact us at or call 800-252-7894. You may also call Diane Albers, FAKC, at 800-597-2987."The AKC is greatly saddened by the devastating hurricane that continues to leave a path of destruction across the South," said Dennis B. Sprung, AKC President and CEO.

We will do everything in our power to help them." The AKC will continue to post frequent updates to our website at
