The Painted Dog Protection Initiative is a movement to advance Painted Dog conservation. We invite you to explore this website to learn more about Painted Dogs, learn about the work we are doing to help, and how you can help us in continuing our work!
We are working with various partners to develop, manufacture and deploy up to 100 protective anti-snare collars to reduce painted dog mortalities from illegal snares. We will deploy 10 prototypes to test their efficacy. After testing and modifications we will begin manufacturing and shipping the remaining collars.
As part of our efforts to raise awareness of the story of the Painted Dog, we are supporting various zoos across the US and a few internationally as well! Click here find a list of zoos that will be organizing a zoo day dedicated to Painted Dogs, along with the date if it's been set.
