13th anniversary gala!

Thank you to the amazing generosity of our auction item donors and everyone who attended our 13th Anniversary Gala, the event was our biggest fundraiser ever! 190 people filled the Medinah Shrine Center in Addison to bid on amazing items, enjoy a delicious dinner, and raise an incredible amount of money to help IDR+ save more animals. We really are astounded at everyone’s generosity and support!

Of course, the number of animals we can save is still limited to the number of foster homes we have, so if you want to make a huge difference that is as important as raising essential funds, please consider fostering. Even with a record amount of money raised, foster homes are still the backbone of IDR+.

Here is the video we showed during the presentation.

Thank you to Laura Horan for taking photos. Here are a few, but please enjoy the full album of pictures from the evening.

Monthly Miracle Makers

mmm stickerIn January 2011, we received an urgent call from animal control about a severely emaciated Doberman literally left in the trash in an alley. He was 33 pounds, and his body temperature was so low, it didn’t register on a thermometer. The vets were worried he would not survive the first night, but he soon started to turn around! We named him Miracle after he started to have a miraculous recovery. After several months of TLC, Miracle transformed into a fully healthy 90-pound dog who loves his life with his family.  Miracle received many generous donations when he came in for his care, and his family wants to encourage everyone to continue donating to IDR+ for other dogs like him.

IDR+ is asking donors to become Monthly Miracle Makers. Sign up for an automatic monthly donation, and we will send you a durable vinyl sticker to thank you! You will receive a letter for your taxes each month, and you don’t need to worry about remembering to donate. Please consider making an automatic monthly donation to make more miracles!

Payment processed through PayPal; however, a PayPal account is not required when making a payment with a credit card.

Do you do any online shopping?

Chances are, you could be generating money for IDR+ by accessing those sites through a donation site called iGive.com.

iGive is FREE for the shopper. The stores make the additional donation to the charity of your choice (hopefully us), and you just shop online like normal.

Each new member who signs up generates a $5 when they select IDR+! When you sign up, you can download the iGive “button” that guarantees you never miss a donation. Many of you are already registered with iGive, but you aren’t using the button. Please install that now and see how easy it is to generate instant donations for IDR+!

One IDR+ volunteer uses iGive all of the time and has generated $1,200! In the past few years, IDR+ has received over $5,500 in donations from iGive!!!

An additional way to generate donations is to use the iGive search tool. It is powered by Bing, and for every search you do, IDR+ gets 1 cent. Trust us, those cents add up!

If you use this link by 11/20/15, we receive a $5 bonus for you joining! Please choose Illinois Doberman Rescue Plus as your cause.
