SportDOG Brand® Supports Wildlife Habitat Conservation as Renewing National Sponsor of Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever

Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever is proud to announce SportDOG Brand® as a renewing national sponsor and the official electronic collar sponsor of “The Habitat Organization.” The partnership provides SportDOG Brand with a wide array of marketing opportunities to educate the organization’s members and supporters about SportDOG Brand products. In return, SportDOG Brand reaffirmed their financial commitment to the organization’s conservation mission.

“Our supporters’ love for bird dogs are a key ingredient to our conservation recipe,” stated Brad Heidel, director of corporate relations for Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever. “Our partners at SportDOG Brand recognize this relationship and have been valued partners in conservation to support the projects which allow hunters and their dogs to take to the fields each fall.”

“SportDOG Brand and Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever have been proud partners since 2004, and we’re pleased to continue the partnership long into the future. As hunters ourselves, preserving habitat and promoting public awareness, education, and land management policies are key to present and future generations of upland hunters, and something we’re very passionate about at SportDOG Brand. The objectives we share with Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever make this a great partnership with a common goal – conservation!” said Chris Morgan, director of SportDOG.
As a renewing national sponsor, SportDOG Brand will support the conservation efforts of Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever's 146,000 members. To that end, the organization has a 34-year track record of effectively turning dollars generated through corporate partners, members, donations, and grants into habitat acres on the ground. In fact, Charity Navigator recently designated Pheasants Forever as an “exceptional” charity.
