Purina Parent Club Program

The Purina Parent Club Program will help National Parent Breed Clubs earn important funds for canine health studies, education efforts and/or resuce through the participation of its members in Purina Pro Club.

The PPCP Program works through Purina’s loyalty program, Pro Club
Pro Club members, who are also members of the National Parent Breed Club or an affiliate club, earn valuable Purina Points for every purchased pound of participating Purina brand dog foods. When the club’s Pro Club members participate in the PPCP Program, they can earn an additional 10% of the value of all points from valid weight circles credited to their Pro Club accounts.


  • For example, for every $100 worth of qualifying weight circle points earned by your Pro Club members, Purina will donate $10 to your National Parent Breed Club

How do funds get donated?
Purina will deposit a minimum of 50% of the funds accrued by your breed club through the PPCP Program directly into the breed’s CHF Donor Advised Fund (100% of the funds accrued can be donated to the CHF Donor Advised Fund if the National Parent Breed Club chooses that allocation). The check for 2002 with these funds will be presented to the Canine Health Foundation in February of 2003.

  • The remaining 50% can be used by the National Parent Breed Club for rescue and/or education programs
  • The Canine Health Foundation has agreed that PPCP Program – generated funds that are placed in the breeds’ CHF Donor Advised Fund are eligible to be matched up to 100% based on the Foundation’s guidelines.


What is required of the National Parent Breed Club?
An agreement, signed by the president of the nation parent breed club, indicating participation in this program. Once the agreement is signed and returned to us, the membership will be allowed to earn funds. The agreement covers two years – 2003 and 2004. The points for each of those years will cover the period starting Jan. 1st of that year through December 31st of that same year.

There are promotion materials available to the National clubs to promote the program.

  • A sample letter, customized by the club, could be sent to the membership announcing the program.
  • A camera-ready ad slick could be run in the club’s newsletters or promotional pieces to announce the program.

Quarterly reports will be provided to the participating National Clubs notifying them of the total funds being accumlated by their members in March, June, September and December. Checks will be issued to the participating clubs and to the Canine Health Foundation in February 2004 for the 2003 year and in February 2005 for the 2004 period.

What is required of Pro Club Members?
Purina has asked current Pro Club members to declare parent club membership. This declaration for the program can be made at any time during the year.
New Pro Club members will be informed about the PPCP program and will be asked to identify their parent club membership when they sign up for Pro Club membership.
