About Us

Owensboro River City Kennel Club is an affiliate of the American Kennel Club.  ORCKC is made up of an eclectic mix of individuals, we have Vets, School Teachers, Accountants, Business Owners, Breeders, Professional Handlers and more that make up our membership.

We come together to promote responsible pet ownership, the sport of dog showing and to learn from one another.  Many of our members teach classes that are open to the general public and current members.

We draw from the expertise of our members to make our club better.
