Donations are essential to our work
Without YOUR support and generous donations, MSRNT could not do its great work.  Our $300 adoption fee covers less than half of our average expense per dog to deliver great veterinary care and ensure that our dogs are in the best possible health when they go to their forever homes.  On average we spend more than $1,020 per dog–and those costs can quickly climb to several thousand dollars per dog for those needing surgery or more advanced therapy and care.

We accept monthly recurring and one-time donations. Choose your option on PayPal:

What are three of the best things about donating to MSRNT?

  • ALL DONATIONS (including adoption fees) are tax deductible for the donor due to our 501(c)(3) non-profit status (Tax # 20-573-6630)
  • EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR goes directly to the care of the dogs. We are an all-volunteer group, with no salaries or overhead expenses.
  • Since our formation in 2006, MSRNT has rescued and found loving forever homes for more than 1,670 MINIATURE SCHNAUZERS. YOUR donations can help keep that number rising.

Where does your money go?

Your generosity allows us to say ‘yes’ when we receive a call about a sick Schnauzer in need who requires surgery or more advanced medical care.  It allows us to say ‘yes’ when a city shelter asks if we can accept a sick or heartworm positive dog that would otherwise be put down at the shelter.  It allows us to care for and rehabilitate these and other dogs who have no one to love or care for them, turning them into healthy, happy pets that will bring great joy to a forever family.

Consider the case of a Schnauzer we named ‘Desperado,’ who was left on a cold January night in  2013 in a bucket, covered with a t-shirt, and left by the dumpster outside of a vet’s office. A worker discovered the animal, who was very near death and showed signs of physical abuse, like lacerations and burn marks.  While the vet worked to save him, the office called MSRNT to see if we could take him in and pay for his care—if he survived.  MSRNT said yes, and funded the surgeries and rehabilitation necessary to save his life.  2 months later, sweet Desperado had the happy ending he so deserved, becoming a cherished pet in a loving family.

Other ways to support MSRNT:

  • Many employers provide a matching donation for employees who donate money to certified non-profit organizations. Check with your company’s HR department to see if your donation can be matched by your company.
  • When you shop with Amazon, sign in to, select MSRNT as your Charitable Organization and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases. Visit Amazon for more details.
  • Sign up at your local grocery store to designate Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of North Texas as your charity of choice in the store’s giving program. Tom Thumb and Kroger loyalty cards donate a small portion of what you spend to the charitable organization you designate.   You must sign up annually at the Customer Service Counter to participate.  Pennies add up to dollars, and MSRNT welcomes these gifts (See Links page)
  • Have everything you really need? Ask your friends to donate to MSRNT the amount they would otherwise spend on a birthday or holiday gift for you.
  • Remember that MSRNT plans to still be here after you have moved on to your heavenly reward. Be sure to check out Planned Giving Opportunities for remembering MSRNT and its work with your Estate Planner or Financial Advisor.
  • Consider being an MSRNT volunteer or foster parent. We are an all-volunteer organization and always need the help of volunteers committed to our cause.
