Prairie Dog Pals is an all-volunteer non-profit organization and we need your donations in order to save prairie dogs in the Albuquerque area and beyond.
There are many ways to support our efforts.
Both services are easy, fast, and secure.
Donations may be made by check and sent to:

Prairie Dog Pals invites you to join our monthly Giving Club, the Prairie Dog Monthly Giving Pals!
This exclusive club donates once per month, automatically via our Network for Good site, and thus contributes to our monthly expenses like carrots, apples and peanut butter for the prairie dogs, thus allowing us to continue our life-saving work.
The best part of all? It’s so easy! Just click here and choose “monthly” under recurring donation.
To thank you for your generosity, we will send you a prairie dog paw keychain!
Yes that’s right. Prairie Dog Pals has entered into an agreement with Car Program that will allow them to dispose of your car (or boat) and provide you with a receipt to deduct the donation from your income tax.
