A  Few Words About Our

 Prairie Dog Services

We currently assist with wild-to-wild translocations and relocations, rescue, rehoming and adoption situations, captive and wild education, and all aspects of prairie dog care in any setting. We consult with private individuals, landowners, land developers, farmers, ranchers, state/national parks, veterinarians, universities, research groups, zoos, sanctuaries, rescues, and other relocators on all aspects of prairie dog care and humane management.

Our mission is to provide professional education and consultation regarding all aspects of issues and concerns that are prairie dog-related. We use a one-on-one approach tailored to the needs of each individual situation and animal in question.


Our vision is to help prairie dogs around the world live their longest, healthiest, and best lives. We're passionate about the humane relocation of wild prairie dogs to help the conservation efforts of our nation's prairie grasslands and this misunderstood keystone species. We hope prairie dog lovers from around the world will help and partner with us to accomplish this goal.

Relocation and Translocation

We work to humanely relocate wild prairie dogs from places where they are unwanted, being displaced, or slated to be destroyed due to land development to both public and private protected lands where they are wanted to conserve this keystone species.

Rescues, Rehomes, & Adoptions

We frequently have urgent rescue situations, foster-care needs, and rehoming/adoption placements that arise. Please contact us if you are interested in helping out in this capacity.


We have lots of knowledge to share regarding prairie dog behavior within both captive and wild colony settings based on decades of hands-on work, observation, research, and documentation.

Captive Pet Care

We provide consultations and advice on all aspects of prairie dog pet care from proper long-term nutrition, habitat, husbandry and bonding, and everything in between. Please look through our pages and contact us with any questions or concerns.

If your prairie dog is experiencing a true medical emergency, please take your prairie dog (PD) to a licensed exotic veterinarian ASAP. If you need assistance or information on finding a veterinarian in your state, PLEASE send us an EMAIL, and we'll respond as soon as possible with someone experienced near you. Understand that exotic veterinarians that are experienced and take prairie dogs as patients are in short supply, so some travel may be required to get the health care needed for your beloved pet.

We are here to help you!

Thank you for visiting our site!

The purpose of this site is to help educate prairie dog owners and inform the general public about what goes on behind the scenes with prairie dog rescues and prairie dog relocation efforts.

Although prairie dogs are not as commonly displaced as people might think, many unwanted prairie dogs are put into rescues because an owner cannot keep them, and countless other reasons people may not have considered. These rescues need our help for the ongoing care for these unwanted, abused, or neglected pets. These are prairie dogs that have somehow lived through being forgotten, neglected, abused, shot, and poisoned. These handicapped prairie dogs are in need of constant care. Vet costs and basic necessities for these prairie dogs can be expensive over time. Information will is provided here so that you can help prairie dogs and the rescues that house them.

PLEASE NEVER release a captive prairie dog back in the wild. They likely will not survive. If you have trouble keeping your prairie dog, please email us. There are rescues that may be able to take in your prairie dog, or assistance may be provided through adoption and rehoming to give it the quality of life it deserves.

Prairie dogs in the wild need your help too. Organizations dedicated to relocating prairie dogs need money for relocation efforts. They need suitable land, veterinary care, and housing before the quarantined wild prairie dogs can be moved onto an established location. Information and what is required to help in relocation efforts is included on this site.

Finally, information is provided for captive prairie dog care, with links to food, caging, gifts, and more. Please email us if you find that you could use some help with your prairie dog's care. We have contact information where you can get free assistance.

ALWAYS seek routine care and medical attention from a licensed, exotic veterinarian in an emergency. Any advice given on this website or any other web page should not be a substitute for proper vet care. If you need assistance in finding a vet, please email, we may be able to help you locate one depending on your location.

State laws change continually, so please do not assume that any exotic animal is legal to own in your state, even if you've owned them there in the past. If prairie dogs are legal to own in your state, please make sure you have a local exotic veterinarian available that is knowledgeable about prairie dogs, and you have done comprehensive research about how to care for them properly in captivity BEFORE acquiring this unique species as a pet. Each home situation will impact a prairie dog differently, so individualized consultation is strongly recommended
