The Oldest & Largest Coton Club 

The Madagascar Coton de Tulear Club of America (mCTCA) is the oldest Coton Breed club and registry, having been founded in 1976. 


The mCTCA introduced to North America the rare, original, Madagascar Coton de Tulear breed which was developed over centuries on the island of Madagascar as a small, intelligent, muscular, laid-back, companion class dog.

Dr. Robert Jay Russel


In June of 2019, Dr. Robert Jay Russell (pictured above), founder of the Madagascar Coton de Tulear Club of America, passed away. He was a friend to Cotons and did much to further the breed. Through his work and dedication many of us have found our most beloved pet companion. Those of us who are members of the mCTCA hope to carry on his legacy for many years to come!
