Types of Involvement
Community • The collective support and/or attendance of anyone 18 and older that wants to be involved with CPP in any capacity. Our community is diverse and widespread. We accept anyone and everyone that wants to be considered part of our community.
Members • Individuals that attending one or more event in a year and annually contribute to our financial obligations by paying dues and dedicating time to assist with CPP operations (While Membership must remain limited, dues are in no way meant as an exclusionary measure; therefore a grant option available for anyone unable to afford dues and is willing to assist CPP through volunteer hours. The amount of service hours is determined at the discretion of that year's Board though is anticipated to be less than 10 hours each year.)
For a complete overview of our club's 501(c)(7) membership changes, please view the DogBlog Newsletter: A message from the Board • 8/24/18.

Make a Donation
Prior to incorporating as a 501(c)(7) non-profit in 2018, the majority of CPP’s operating expenses were donated by it’s elected Boards using personal finances. While the Board will continue to make significant financial contribution toward the club, your contribution means the world to us! No donation is too small and 100% of your donations go toward bettering CPP. This includes programming, web operations, legal operations, club incentives, and so much more. Please help us to continue building our community! Please review our ways of thanking you for donating to CPP!
