GSVKC is proud to donate and/or belong to the following dog related organizations.

- Cochise County Humane Society 

- Border Animal Rescue

- Nancy J, Brua Animal Care Center

- National Animal Interest Alliance (NAIA)


The Club was founded in 1980, in Sierra Vista, AZ, the hummingbird capital of the United States.  Our membership is diverse, and consists of dog enthusiasts who work together in enjoying all aspects of showing purebred dogs, as well as participating in dog companion and performance activities.  Our members include accomplished trainers, judges, exhibitors, breeders, and authors, as well as owners of companion dogs, therapy dogs and service dogs. Many different breeds are represented with the Club. We sponsor dog events and provide informative dog-themed community programs, to further knowledge and education.  


The Greater Sierra Vista Kennel Club welcomes new members who     have an interest in purebred, mixed breed, and rescued dogs. Many of the AKC performance venues are now open to mixed breeds, allowing all owners and their dogs to participate in the fun.  If you are a dog enthusiast and would like to meet with other like-minded dog lovers, and support Club activities, we invite you to check out our Membership Page and become part of this active club.
