In support of the people and pets affected by the recent natural disasters around the country, the AKC Humane Fund has donated $40,000, through its “Sandy Fund,” to four separate animal organizations. The donations of $10,000 each were made to The Sato Project, The Houston SPCA, Napa Humane, Sonoma Humane Society.
