Southern Chow Chow Club, Inc. (SCCCI), one of the nation's premiere dog fancier clubs.  Established in 1926 as a membership organization, SCCCI Inc. was formed to meet the following objectives:
(a) to encourage and promote quality in the breeding of purebred Chow Chows and to do all possible to bring their natural qualities to perfection.

(b) to urge members and breeders to accept the standard of the breed as approved by The American Kennel Club as the only standard of excellence by which the Chow Chow shall be judged

(c) to do all in its power to protect the interests of the breed by encouraging sportsman like competition at dog shows.

(d) to conduct sanctioned matches, dog shows and any other event for which the club is eligible under the Rules and Regulations of The American Kennel Club.

(e) to promote responsible ownership and help to educate the public about the Chow Chow breed.

SCCCI is located in the mid-Atlantic section of the United States and operates within a 125-mile radius of the counties surrounding Washington, D.C., including Virginia and Maryland.

However, SCCCI's members are located across the United States and we welcome all new applicants located nationally and internationally.
