Education Fund is Recipient

Big Boost for Bird Dog Foundation

Jul 08, 2019

Purina and the field trial and bird dog community have done it again, providing the Bird Dog Foundation’s education arm with a substantial boost.

Received recently were two checks from the Purina Parent Club Partnership Program for 2018 amounting to $12,753! This amount will be forwarded to the Bird Dog Foundation’s Michael R. Tuxon Education Fund which manages that initiative as part of the Foundation’s mandate.

Some years ago, Purina initiated the Purina Parent Club Partnership Program, and two parent club entities were established — The American Field Pointer and the American Field English Setter Associations.

Purina Pro Club© members are asked to declare for a Parent Breed Club. When redeeming receipts from Purina product, the Pro Club© member receives the full benefit of the receipt, and Purina matches that amount dollar for dollar, sharing it 50/50 with the Canine Health Foundation and the declared Parent Breed Club.

So, when looking at the $12,753, the total amount is $25,506 that Purina Pro Club© members received in redeemed receipts, and an additional $25,506 that the Purina Partnership Program matched, $12,753 of which was directed to the Canine Health Foundation, and $12,753 forwarded to the respective American Field Pointer and English Setter Associations, which in turn will be forwarded to the Bird Dog Foundation’s education arm.

The Purina Parent Club Partnership Program was initiated in 2002. The American  Field English Setter Association was formed in 2005, and the American Field Pointer Association followed in 2006. The cumulative amount received by these two Parent  Breed Associations to date is $63,780,  all of which has been forwarded to the Bird Dog Foundation for education initiatives.

The Purina Parent Club Partnership Program is another important way in which Purina benefits the bird dog sport.

Purina Pro Club© members are urged to declare for either the American Field Pointer Association or the American Field English Setter Association. The benefits to the Pro Club© member and the Bird Dog Foundation are significant.
