You can use the Paypal button, go directly into Paypal (this method avoids fees), or you can mail in a cash donation. You can also set up a tribute to a person or dog with your donation using the link below. If you can’t afford a larger donation right now, you might want to help out by sending us some stamps to help with our mailing costs. All directions are below.
WE ARE NOW AN APPROVED 501C3 ORGANIZATION!!!!! This approval is retroactive to August 2012 when we incorporated as a non-profit with the State of Michigan. If you provide your name and address with your donation, we will send you a card with the appropriate information for your tax records. Please direct any questions on this to our Treasurer, Jackie Curtis. Email: email@example.com.
PLEASE NOTE: Many corporations will match, double or triple your donation if you are an active or retired employee. Please check!
PAYPAL DIRECT: (Avoid Fees)
If you prefer to go to Paypal without the link, following this instruction, they do not take a fee from your donation. (We did verify with Paypal that using this method is legitimate.)

2. Either sign in, or sign up.
3.When it asks who you want to send money to, put in or choose the email address: “firstname.lastname@example.org”.

DONATIONS ARE SIMPLE! We could never keep going at the level we do without generous donations from our supporters. We typically spend over $25,000 for medical expenses alone. We have no employees and do not pay any of our volunteers. We truly appreciate every little bit of help we receive from people like you.
Lauren is a young girl who has twice now raised funds for Westie Rescue Michigan. This time she made and sold decorations. She sent us $62 which is enough to pay for a dog’s vaccinations; or to get a dog groomed and buy him a collar and leash! Donations don’t have to be huge. If Lauren can do this for our Westies, so can you!!!!
THANK YOU for your generosity. A lot of little white dogs will be very grateful for their care.
