We can only save dogs' lives because of the generosity of people like you.


As a non-profit organization, we hope financial limitations never come between a dog in need and our ability to help. In the simplest terms, donations save lives.


We are supported entirely through tax deductible donations and adoption fees. Midwest Wheaten Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and we are completely dependent on donations to support our rescue efforts.


We operate entirely on volunteer help so 100% of every donation goes to support our rescue. We are always in need of funds to continue our rescue efforts and your donation is always appreciated. Donations help with vaccinations, spay & neuter surgery, heartworm preventive, crates, leashes and if necessary, surgery and various veterinarian services.

You can donate securely through PayPal using the link above. 

We also welcome the donation of items our foster dogs may need:

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

o    Frontline

o    Heartguard


Do you love dogs? We do too! And we'd love to meet you if you'd like to join our efforts in saving their lives. We are only as strong as our volunteers, and we welcome your help. There are lots of ways to get involved. If you have an idea that's not listed here, please reach out!



We are always in need of foster families. Foster families keep a dog in their home until he or she finds an adoptive family. MWR provides the dog's vet care, crate, leash/collar, and food while a foster family gives the dog a safe place to live, lots of love, and even more belly rubs. Foster families literally save a dog who would otherwise be at risk of going to a shelter or potentially even being put to sleep. It's a rewarding experience and foster families also get priority in adopting their foster dog. If you'd like to foster, start by filling out the Foster Application in the link above!


Perhaps you're not in a position to foster a dog, but one on our website speaks to you. You can help by sponsoring the care of that one dog. When a pup 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 donation we charge when placing a dog in their new home.  If you would like to help offset these costs, please donate and add the name of the dog you are helping in the note section in PayPal.
