Life Membership with PDC Inc

Due to an ever increasing membership base and many very loyal supporters, we have decided to offer Life Memberships to those that love Painted Dogs and the cause as much as we do. It would also make a lovely gift to a loved one or someone who has everything. As part of joining for life you will receive a beautiful plaque embossed with your name (see picture below) to proudly display in your home or office. Life memberships are $500 and can be arranged by contacting John Lemon

Help the Zambia Carnivore Programme keep track of the packs in the field, and contribute to their conservation. Wild dogs are completely dependent on their pack structure and tight social bonds for survival - cooperation of pack members increases hunting success and breeding success.

For $250 per year you will receive:
An Adoption Plaque
High resolution photos of your wild dog pack members
Details of your pack, it's location and regular news of the dogs' lives and successes in the African bush.

Doggie Dollars

How about signing up for Doggie Dollars?

Doggie Dollars is an easy way for you to financially help us continue all the good work we do. Just donate $2 a week to PDC Inc. and we’ll do the rest.

Two dollars a week doesn’t sound very much, but if you join Doggie Dollars, you’ll donate over $100 a year towards Painted Dog conservation. If just one hundred people do the same, that’s over $10,000 a year, and that makes a huge difference to our projects and their outcomes.

Because your donations are fully tax deductible, you’ll be issued with a receipt at the end of the year which you submit with your annual tax return. We can work out a system of payment options that best suits you, either weekly, fortnightly, monthly, quarterly, half yearly or annually. Just indicate by reply email how much you wish to donate and how often then we’ll set up a periodic deduction from your credit card or a direct debit from your bank account.

Doggie Dollars is also compatible with workplace giving and we’d welcome your employer nominating PDC Inc. as a preferred charity.

We understand that your circumstances can change so you can withdraw from Doggie Dollars any time you wish.
