At the basic $60 membership level, your pet can support Texas Public Radio, receive his or her own membership card, be made aware of quarterly TPR Dog Park Days and – perhaps most notably – make his furry friends jealous when he sports his very own TParf scarf about town!

SweeTPR Tote Bag
Local artist Jason Pearce Willome’s design was the "runner up" among over 100 submissions by local artists for Texas Public Radio’s first ever t-shirt design contest. We have to put quotes around the designation of runner up because there was not a plan to have a second selection until we received Jason’s supremely creative and refreshing SweeTPR design.
The Groombridge Natural 10 ounce cotton tote bag is made from all natural environmentally friendly cotton canvas.
Membership Level: $120 membership
Packaged with: Choice of t-shirt
