Prairie Dog Pals invites you to join Prairie Dog Monthly Giving Pals!
Members of this exclusive club donate once a month, automatically via Network for Good. Contributions go towards 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.
If you shop at Smith’s grocery stores, you can help PDP by participating in their Community Rewards program. There is no cost to enroll, and enrollment will not affect your fuel points or coupon discounts. To sign up:
2) Create an account
3) Sign in
4) Enroll using the organization code 65195
Then use your Community Rewards card each time you shop at Smith’s, and PDP will receive a small percentage based on your grocery bill.
Prairie Dog Pals has established a Venmo account for those that use this payment service and wish to send money to Prairie Dog Pals. Our account can be accessed through Venmo at Prairie Dog Pals or @prairiedogpals.
Venmo is operated by PayPal, and appears to be relatively “safe” for the small users for which it is intended. Unlike PayPal, transactions are not sent using the User’s e-mail address, but instead the user’s Venmo Id, typically name and a number assigned by Venmo. So, when you want to send money to “Prairie Dog Pals”, you type in (Prairie Dog Pals or @prairiedogpals). All of the “Prairie Dog Pals” on Venmo pop up with pictures attached to them (if there are any other?)
