Year-end giving campaign raises funds for conservation through hunters' love of hunting dogs

St. Paul, Minn. - December 07 -

What's your favorite bird dog breed? Quail Forever's third annual "Bird Dogs for Habitat" campaign challenges upland hunters to cast a vote and make a donation on behalf of their favorite dog. All tax-deductible donations support Quail Forever's wildlife habitat conservation mission - and the places where bird dogs love to hunt.

Through online credit card payments, Quail Forever will accept contributions placed in support of 45 different breeds of bird dogs. Each $1 donated is equal to one vote for that bird dog breed. In other words, a $100 donation is equal to 100 votes for a particular bird dog breed. U.S. Bank and its Quail Forever Visa Card program have started the donations off with a $5,000 contribution, which will be evenly distributed among all breeds.

Last year's Bird Dogs for Habitat campaign raised more than $48,000, which all directly supported Quail Forever's wildlife habitat efforts. Last year's winning breed was the Vizsla, which accrued $6,466 in contributions. As an added incentive to this year's campaign, all Quail Forever Dog Life Memberships sold at $500 each during December will also count toward that breed's vote total.

NEW THIS YEAR: We will be offering special incentives to those who make that extra commitment to not only the bird dogs they love, but the wild places we all enjoy. Please see the graphic below to find out what level of charitable contribution will get you great gifts from Browning, Irish Setter, SportDog Brand and more!
