At ORKC, we believe in rescue dogs! How far can you go with a rescue dog? We would love for you to try our training classes to find out. So, we offer a discount of $20 for one obedience class to any dog adopted from a shelter or rescue. All you have to do is include this information when registering for your class, then send a copy of your adoption papers, either via e-mail or snail mail, to our registrar so she can make sure you get your discount.

Here are some of our rescue graduates!
