Edgefield, SC (PRWEB) August 1, 2007
Quail Unlimited announced today a new Canine Lifetime Membership category including a web site for posting of photographs and biographies of dogs owned by it's membership. The new membership will also include an Honorary Membership for those canine companions that have past away but whose impact and friendship remains strong.
"The passion and drive we use to recover our wildlife habitat for quail and other upland birds and animals is intensified 100 fold when we realize the joy of taking our favorite hunting dog and companion into the field. The bond of any animal to its owner is intense, add to this the sharing of an American Heritage we call hunting, and it touches your soul." stated Craig Alderman, Director of Marketing for Quail Unlimited. "We created the Quail Unlimited Canine Lifetime Hall of Fame™ to honor the substantial contributions dogs make in our lives, and to recognize their owners and handlers like no one else" Alderman said. "By creating the QU Lifetime Canine Hall of Fame, hosted on http://www.qu.org/chof there is now a web site to visit that will show your dog and you for all to see and read about. From listing your dog's name and birth date, breed and color along with interesting facts and accomplishments to enjoyable moments and special thoughts, this honor is long overdue" emphasized Craig.
Another feature of the Canine Lifetime Hall of Fame is the ability to add information to your dog's biography when he or she accomplishes more or does something special in your life. When the time comes for your canine to pass to the ultimate hunting ground, your dog's picture and file will be moved to the "Honorary Canine Lifetime Hall of Fame", where it will remain for all to see and read for generations to come.
Available exclusively to QU members, there is no limit to the number of dogs you can submit for lifetime membership, and it can be any breed as long as your canine brought companionship, love and friendship into your life and that of your family. When the application is received and confirmed, your canine will be assigned a unique Lifetime Membership number, then his biography and photograph you submit will be posted on the QU Canine Lifetime Hall of Fame. A one time fee of $200.00 will be used to establish the records and for habitat restoration projects through Quail Unlimited, and its chapters nation wide.
Further, all Canine Lifetime Hall of Fame owners will receive a certificate for the Canine Lifetime Membership for your office or home, another fitting tribute to the times spent with your canine companion
Applications can be obtained on line at http://www.qu.org/chof or by contacting Quail Unlimited at 803-637-5731.
"How many times have we wished we had better pictures and details about our hunting dogs and canine companions from years past to show our children, grand children, or hunting partners? With the QU Canine Lifetime Hall of Fame now we can have all of those memories and it will remain for all to see" concluded Craig Alderman.
