Ruff Land Kennels Renews National Sponsorship with Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever

Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever are thrilled to announce Ruff Land Kennels as a renewing national sponsor and the “Official Kennel of The Habitat Organization” for a fifth consecutive year. The partnership provides Ruff Land Kennels a wide assortment of marketing assets to reach dog-owning members of the nation’s leading upland charities, while delivering direct financial support for the creation of grasslands where bird dogs love to roam.
“Purchasing with a purpose is made easy with a supporter like Ruff Land; when you buy a kennel from their South Dakota factory, upland birds benefit from a conservation donation,” said Chris Kalis, director of corporate partnerships. “Ruff Land Kennels are made by bird hunters for bird hunters. When it comes to protecting our four-legged family members traveling from one prairie to another, Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever encourage upland hunters to support Ruff Land, the only kennel you’ll ever need.”

Ruff Land Kennels are built tough for extreme performance and safety. Featuring one-piece roto-molded construction from UV-stabilized polyethylene, no assembly is needed, and no bolt-through ledge can be found, saving up to three inches of side space over conventional models. It also makes for a much stronger kennel.  And, because there are no seams, it is also much easier to clean. Finally, a Ruff Land Kennel won’t crack even in extreme subzero weather. 
"Being from the pheasant capital of South Dakota, everyone here at Ruff Land certainly appreciates what Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever stand for. So many of our customers are pheasant and quail hunters who rely on quality upland habitat. We are proud to be a national sponsor of both Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever for the fifth year running and commend the organization for all they do," stated Ruff Land Kennels owners.
In addition to marketing in the Pheasants Forever Journal of Upland Conservation, Quail Forever Journal, and the organization’s online channels, the following highlight key components of the relationship:
