Donations Save Lives

Your contribution, regardless of amount, provides the resources we need to care for and re-home surrendered and abandoned Dachshunds.

All donations stay in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin, so your contribution directly impacts your community.

Donor Tiers


Throughout our 18 years serving Dachshunds in the MidWest, we've been able to determine the items needed to comfortably transition a surrendered or abandoned dog into a healthy foster home.

We've created different donation levels to help you better understand where your contribution is being used in that process. If you prefer to donate a different amount, simply enter it in the box to the right.

$25 - Welcomer

The Welcomer gift buys our incoming doxie a collar, leash, and blanket of their own to help them through a stressful transition.

$65 - Advocate

The Advocate gift helps each incoming doxie with a veterinary inspection to assess their condition and get them on the path to full health.

$125 - Life Saver

The Life Saver gift pays for each doxie to get fully up-to-date with their vaccinations, which could literally save their lives.

$500 - Guardian

The Guardian gift helps a doxie in need get spayed/neutered and dental treatment.

$4000 - Hero

A Hero gift pays for a doxie in need of back surgery due to a ruptured disc.

Make a Non-monetary Donation

Financial donations aren't the only way to make an impact: MWDR is always seeking and accepting donations for dog care products like food, leashes, and toys, as well as home-made and crafted items for raffles and silent auctions.

Your contribution can keep a rescued Doxie safe, happy, and healthy while he waits for a forever family!
