Buckwheat with newbie Pointer mix rescues Teenie and Weenie in 2017.
Welcome to Buckwheat's Memorial Winter Fundraising Raffle. Buckwheat was the heart of Illinois Birddog Rescue from 2002 to his passing in 2019. He was a Pointer mix that survived Parvo as a puppy and was adopted by Lisa (me) IBR's Founder & President. BW was a fixture at all adoption events and at all the IBR garage sales and helped with foster care for hundreds of dogs and puppies. BW also fought Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever most of his life and I attribute his long life to all the thoughtful blood work and long term treatment we do for all our incoming dogs. His raffle is dedicated to all our senior rescues and helping them find loving homes in the golden years of their lives.

More images of the items featured in this raffle can be viewed on IBR Facebook- Click Here. I made all the face masks and have been shipping them all over the country for fundraising. They are 2 layer cotton and are meant to fit snuggly.

This raffle will go through February 7th at noon and tickets are $6 each. Some items can be shipped but most will need to be picked up at IBR HQ in Wood Dale, IL- especially the framed art. I am happy to drive an hour in any direction to meet some of my out of state and southern IL winners. The cost to ship will need to be paid by the winners and I can send an invoice via PayPal to cover USPS or UPS expenses. Raffle tickets will be mailed to each participant during the event-- last minute ticket purchases will be emailed. Winners will be notified on Facebook and via email. 

I hope we can raise $2,000 to help with the vet bills for seniors Harvey, Starlette and Lilykins and that we have many winners. Good luck and thanks!!
