The Purina Parent Club Partnership Program not only offers many benefits to those individual members who participate, it provides money to USASA to support research and education efforts and to the AKC Canine Health Foundation for targeted research projects selected by USASA for the Australian Shepherd.

This is a WIN-WIN program for all! If you feed your dog Purina brand dog food make sure you are a Purina Pro Club member and designate USASA as your Parent Club!
