How You Can Help
There are many ways you can help rescue Wheatens. Thank you for your interest! We'd love to have you on board!
We are only as strong as our volunteers, and we welcome your help. We're all able to help in different ways, so if you can transport, foster, donate, or help in other ways, please contact us at: MidwestWheatenRescue@yahoo.com
Foster a Wheaten
We desperately need foster homes! Fostering a Wheaten is one of the most important ways you can help our rescue dogs find their forever homes, and can be an extremely rewarding experience. More often than not we have many more Wheatens in need than there are foster homes to place them in. Fostering is a great way to help with Rescue, even if you already have a dog. Many times, 'resident' dogs are great teachers for the dogs that come into Rescue.
If you are interested in fostering, please Contact Us and we will let you know what's involved and answer any questions you may have.
If you are ready to start helping now, you can start by filling out a Foster Application and letting us know more about you. Please send the completed application to MidwestWheatenRescue@Yahoo.com. Once we receive your completed application we will be in contact about the next steps!
Become a Wheaten Angel
Have you fallen in love with one of our dogs, but are not in a position to foster or adopt? You can help by sponsoring the care of one of our Wheatens. When a Wheaten comes to our rescue, we make sure they are fully vetted. This means they are spayed/neutered (if needed for dogs over 6 months of age), up to date on vaccines, teeth are cleaned (if needed), heartworm tested, groomed, and any medical needs are attended to. The cost of this exceeds the adoption fee we charge when placing a Wheaten in their new home. If you would like to help offset these costs, please visit our Donations page to contribute to these deserving dogs.
As a non-profit organization, we hope financial limitations never come between a Wheaten in need and our ability to help. We are supported entirely through tax deductible donations and adoption fees. We operate entirely on volunteer help so 100% of every donation goes to support our rescue.
You can donate securely through PayPal on our Donations page.
We always accept and appreciate monetary donations, but we also have a need for specific items for the dogs in our care. We also do community outreach in our area to help care for dogs whose families’ have fallen on difficult times and to help support smaller shelters ensure the dogs in their care are as comfortable as possible. If you have items that you no longer need, please consider donating them for our cause. Below is a list of items we are always in need of.
o Gift Cards to any major Petstores, gas cards for rescue/transport
o Toys & Chews
o Crates (medium to large)
o Car Harness Seat Belts
