Purina Partnership

Do you feed your dogs Purina brand dog food?

If so, read on about this valuable program that can save you money, plus earn valuable funds for Australian Shepherds and USASA!

This program is truly a WIN-WIN program! Beyond the benefits you personally receive as a Purina Pro Plan member, your national breed club benefits, and the entire Australian Shepherd breed benefits!
The Purina® Parent Club Program

The United States Australian Shepherd Association, Inc. (USASA) is a participant in The Purina® Parent Club Program (PPCP), which supports health research, education, and rescue efforts that benefits the Australian Shepherd breed.

The PPCP Program works through Purina’s loyalty program, the Purina Pro Club®. USASA members that feed Purina brand dog food are encouraged to become members of the Purina Pro Club®, and to save weight circles from their Purina dog food bags to send in to Purina for rewards and rebate checks, good toward their future dog food purchases.

Purina Pro Club® members earn valuable points for every pound purchased of qualifying Purina® brand dog foods. When Purina Pro Club® members also participate in the PPCP Program, USASA can earn an additional 10% of the value of all points submitted from valid weight circles credited to their Pro Club accounts. There is no cost to Purina Pro Club members for participating. When you choose to participate, Purina will donate 10 percent of the value of the Weight Circle points you submit—half to the national breed club and half to the Canine Health Foundation.
Canine Health Foundation Matching Funds

Through the PPCP Program, Purina and the AKC Canine Health Foundation work together to help USASA address priority health concerns for Australian Shepherds.

The donation from this program that goes to the AKC Canine Health Foundation is eligible to be matched up to 100 percent by the Canine Health Foundation. That means that more money can be applied toward research on health issues that are specific to Australian Shepherds.

The goal of Purina and the AKC Canine Health Foundation is to provide funding and resources to help breed clubs accomplish more in learning the causes of health conditions that may shorten a dog’s life. Ultimately, the knowledge gained from canine health studies may help our dogs live longer, healthier lives.
