How to Help

We are working towards eliminating the evils that landmines inflict upon innocent people, animals and communities. Please help; your support will help people help themselves. We have provided several easy ways to donate or become involved.

Join the Share-A-Dog Program

For just $21/month or an annual donation of $250, you can join the Share-A-Dog program and receive regular updates about one of MLI’s dogs! Each dollar you donate helps a mine detection dog search 400 square feet!  In just a month, these amazing MDDs are able to “sniff out” approximately 2 acres of mine-contaminated land, or 8,400 square meters,  so you will know that your donation is truly making a difference and saving livesLearn more here.

Fully Sponsor Your Own Mine Detection Dog

It costs $25,000 to purchase, train, and send a mine detection dog to a mine affected country.  Fully sponsoring a mine detection dog allows you to make an invaluable contribution towards removing landmines that threaten the lives, health, and peace of many communities around the world. You will receive regular updates and photos about your dog and you get to name him/her!  MLI also invites MDD sponsors to join us in visiting mine-affected countries each year so you can see your dog at work.  Please contact us for more information or Learn More here.


Children injured by landmines face a life-time of struggles.  In many countries, the children who have lost limbs do not have access to the medical care, counseling, or prosthetic limbs they need to help them recover from this devastating tragedy.  Many are unable to continue attending school and face seemingly insurmountable challenges in a life that would have been difficult under the best of circumstances.  You can help a child receive the physical and psychological treatment need to move forward by supporting our Survivors’ Assistance program.
