The ASC National Cocker Spaniel Show|
ASC will receive donations based on the participation of breeders and puppy owners in
our club’s Futurity program. Purina will donate:
- $10 for each Futurity nominated litter
- $2 for each Futurity enrolled puppy, and
- $25 for each Futurity enrolled puppy that earns it AKC Conformation Championship title.
In addition to the donations listed above, the Nestle Purina Pet Care
Company will send Recognition Awards for all Futurity nominated puppies that
achieve their AKC Conformation Championship titles, and will award the Pro
Plan Futurity Alliance Trophy, an original Danny Quest bronze on marble
base, to the breeder of each Best In Futurity puppy.
ASC will also receive donations based on the participation of breeders and owners of
nominated litters and/or puppies in the Purina Pro Club loyalty program. When our club’s
Cocker Spaniel Futurity participants are members of the Pro Club, they will earn valuable
Purina Points for every purchased pound of participating Purina brand dog foods. The
American Spaniel Club can also earn 10% of the value of all points from valid weight circles
credited to our Futurity participants’ Pro Club accounts.
To enroll in the Purina Pro Club, call 1-877-PRO-CLUB (1-877-776-2582) or visit the
