Wire Fox Terrier Rescue Midwest rescues countless Wire Fox Terriers each year from Puppy Mills, Shelters and Animal Controls. Many have been abandoned, abused, neglected and in horrific condition. They truly need help and extensive veterinary care. The expenses significantly exceed the amount raised through adoption fees. We rely on donations and contributions to continue our lifeline to these helpless Wire Fox Terriers as without your generosity, we would not exist. Although a regional and small Rescue group, we manage to save a record number of lives each year.

Puppy Mill Rescues is an overwhelming challenge in that these dogs have never received any vet care their entire lives and also live in horrendous conditions. They require extensive veterinary work, surgeries, dental work and numerous extractions, infections, medications and care to bring them healthy, whole and ready for that new life as a pet. The expenses can be more than what most rescues can bear. WFTRM is truly grateful to have this support so we can help these ones that need saving desperately.
