ASC Foundation and the Purina® Parent Club Partnership (PPCP) Program
For many years now the ASC Foundation has declared its participation in the Purina Parent Club Partnership (PPCP) Program. This program allows the Foundation to individually earn funding based on Purina weight circle submissions by Pro Club® members.
How it Works
Pro Club members submit weight circles from bags of participating Purina® Brand Dog Foods and accumulate weight circle points as part of the Pro Club Weight Circle Program. (Refer to Purina Pro Club Weight Circle Program for the program details). Purina tracks these weight circle submissions, and for every $100 of qualifying weight circle points earned by Pro Club members, Purina donates $10 to the participating national parent breed club. It is as simple as that.
Points are accumulated throughout a calendar year, and a check representing 10 percent of the value of the submitted weight circles for the year is evenly split between the participating national parent breed club and the AKC Canine Health Foundation. Since all funding is incremental to the weight circle program, your participation in the PPCP will not result in a reduction of the points you earn.
One-half of each club’s annual earnings are issued directly to the Canine Health Foundation to support research grants aimed at a better understanding of genetics and other conditions impacting our dogs’ health. The other half is issued to the Foundation which we use in the support of canine health research as designated by the Board of the foundation.
How to Participate in the PPCP Program
You must be a Purina® Pro Club® Member to participate. Pro Club® members must individually declare their participation in the program and identify the American Spaniel Club Foundation as the parent breed club that will receive their Purina Points. Members may declare for their national parent breed club by calling the Purina® Pro Club® toll-free number at 1-877-PRO-CLUB (1-877-776-2582) from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST, Monday through Friday, or by registering on the Pro Club site. Pro Club members can only earn funds for their national parent breed club if the national parent breed club is enrolled in the PPCP Program.
