In Memory of…

Most of us have had the sad experience of losing a beloved pet. It is a painful and difficult time. We thought what better way to remember those we loved and lost than to devote a special page to them. If you are interested in paying tribute to a beloved pet, please visit our In Memory of… page.

Attend or Donate to a Fundraiser

We have a few fundraisers during the course of the year. These fundraisers help generate much needed funds for food, transportation, and medical expenses for those animals we bring to our rescue. If you would like to attend or donate to one of our fundraisers, please email us.


We understand that times are difficult and sometimes it’s hard to donate. We understand and sympathize. However, if you still want to help you can volunteer your time or specific talent. Magnificent Mutts is always looking for people to help at events, foster animals, take care of the cats at Petco, fundraising, and much more! If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please visit our Volunteer page to learn about all the different ways you can help.

Other Donations

We also accept cat and dog food, leashes, food bowls, toys, and other supplies. If you wish to donate any of these items you can drop them off at Elmhurst Animal Care Center in Elmhurst, IL and let them know your donation is for Magnificent Mutts.

Thank you so much for your interest in helping Magnificent Mutts!
