2023 Holiday Campaign!

Giving Tuesday: Chase a life with a High Energy Companion!

    This holiday season we celebrate the power of giving of our community!

    Our kick off event for this Holiday Season is  Giving Tuesday on November 28th, where our goal is to gain 40 new MCR Circle of Friends that can donate $20/month. 

    Thanks to one generous donor,  your donation will be match 100% (up to $10,000)!!!

    Fundraise for Phoenix and Rocky so they can finish their EPIC program and get the help they need to find their forever homes! Creating your fundraiser is easy, you can add any goal amount you want and write your story or just copy our story as well, for a quick video instruction click here

    You know how great pets high energy dogs could be and we need you to share your story and be their voice to your friends and family.

    Giving Tuesday will be full of updates or our dogs, our programs, what is coming in 2024 and so much more!

    But this is just the  beginning, see all the events we have planned for you! There is no excuse to get the help you need with your dog and to help dogs and families on the Treasure Valley. Do it for Rocky and Phoenix, our high energy dogs at our EPIC program!

    🎄✨ 25 Paws of Christmas - Unwrap the Gift of FREE Consultations! 🎁🐾

                     MCR is also giving this holiday season! 

    We want to help as many families as possible and keep dogs in their homes. We understand economy is tough and we want to offer FREE behavior consultations to anybody that is struggling with their dogs, or if you want to understand a particular behavior that your dog has. 

    This is a one hour virtual consultation with our dog trainer. Our regular price is $50 but this consultations will be free until December 31st. Please share with families and friends that may need it!

    Giving for Paws - It is all about collaboration!

    Animal welfare is all about collaboration, we can’t do this alone and this is why Meridian Canine Rescue partnered this holiday season with Boise Bully Breed Rescue! We both believe on storytelling and education and we help one dog at a time. On top of this, we both have a prison program, where BBBR works with the Orofino prison and MCR works with the Kuna prison. 

    We are both privately funded and that is why YOU can help saving more dogs and educating more families:

    • You can host a Christmas tree for us and collect in kind donations that would help us year around!
    • Ask your employer to support us this holiday season.

    All the funds raised on this campaign will be equally divided between both organizations. We will post on social media all the list of businesses that are hosting a tree for us! We have more than 20 businesses so far!

    Give a Merry Paws this season!

    What is a better gift that saving a life? This season give the perfect gift to your dog lover friend, spouse, son or co-worker! 

    You can pick between our two different Holiday gift options:

    1)For a $50 donation to our Giving Tuesday campaign, we will prepare a unique gift for you. This bundle includes: a snuffle mat (you can pick the color); an MCR dog story written by the dogs! (you can choose Rocky & Phoenix or BB & Ricky) and a dog enrichment schedule. All in a cute gift bag that you can pick up at any of our events. Sorry we can’t ship this one at this time!

    2) For a $20 donation ($25 if you want us to ship it) to our Giving Tuesday campaign, you can have your pet portrait burned into a wood ornament by Horses & Hounds! You can add the name of your pet (only one pet per ornament) and we can ship this gift to any part of the US!

    When donating, please add in the notes which gift option you would like and we will contact you right away!
