About Our Rescue Group:

The Mission of Midwest Pet Refuge is to ensure that animals in our area are given the opportunity to have access to a safe and nurturing environment. This mission is achieved through the use of rescues, foster homes, and supportive services to pet owners. These services include educational opportunities to increase pet owner's understanding of the importance of spay/neutering, pet needs and behaviors, as well as efforts to link pet owners to needed resources. We strive to ensure that all pets have the chance to live in loving homes. This is accomplished through carefully connecting pets with appropriate forever homes.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are currently foster only, so appointments must be made to meet our pets. We hope to start having adoption events soon!

Our Adoption Process:

We require a completed application, which then must be approved, prior to adoption. Our fees cover the vetting we have in our pets for adoption. We are looking for loving family homes who are wanting to adopt a new family member.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
