OUR MISSION: The Central Pennsylvania Australian Cattle Dog Club is a non-profit, volunteer club
that strives to encourage excellence in the purebred Australian Cattle Dog, and to promote the ACD in
many venues including herding competitions, obedience and conformation events, as well as providing
support and networking for ACD owners in the Central PA region.
CPACDC has never denied, excluded, or removed anyone because of where or from whom they got their
dogs. Our members' dogs are AKC, rescues, mixes, BYBs, farm dogs; we welcome them all.
