PO Box 21 Mokena IL 60448 USA


To RESCUE and save abandoned, stray, neglected or relinquished Wire Fox Terriers from shelters, animal controls, puppy mills and breeders and to assist dogs who, because of extenuating circumstances, are unable to remain in their homes with their owners.  

To provide any and all medical attention as required to make sure that each dog is in good health prior to adoption and to micro chip each Wire Fox Terrier.

To provide sanctuary in a foster home where each receives a tremendous amount of love and care and treated as a member of the family. 

To REHABILITATE and evaluate each foster dog for temperament and personality to ascertain the best suited home based on their needs, their prospective owner’s situation and lifestyle.  

To thoroughly screen adoption applicants before making placement decisions by requiring a completed Application, a Home Visit and Vet Reference Check and to interview and personally speak with each applicant to get to know them and their preferences which increases the end result of a successful permanent placement.

To REHOME each foster dog by adopting them into their new suitable, permanent and loving Forever Homes.

To increase public awareness of the overpopulation of homeless animals and to stress the importance of choosing to adopt and to provide information and links on where and how to become involved to eliminate the killing of adoptable animals.

To exercise fiscal responsibility in handling our adoption fees, donations and other fundraising receipts to provide the maximum care for our rescued dogs and to ensure our financial viability into the future.


We have worked over the years to establish and build relationships with shelters and animal controls throughout the Midwest.   When a Wire Fox Terrier is picked up or relinquished to these facilities, we arrange for the Wire Fox Terrier to be picked up as soon as possible.  We also encourage all shelters and animals controls to contact us if unsure of a specific breed of an animal and we will assist them with the correct contact information for that breed rescue.   By each breed rescue helping and taking their breeds, it relieves the stress on these animals, the over crowded aspect of the facilities and the space opening up for another animal in need.

Reviews for Wire Fox Terrier Rescue Midwest

Rating: 5 stars  

WFTR Midwest is an organization dedicated to rescuing fox terriers, and other similar breeds. Their volunteers rescued a two year old wire from a shelter that had been "find the dog a home or destroy it, by the owner of a puppy mill. After two weeks in the care of WFTR, Tilly (her new name), had been treated by a vet, cleaned up and evaluated. My wife and I were able to adopt this small two year old that for the first two years of life only knew living in a wire cage. Their volunteers rescue about 100 dogs a year.
