Midwest Pet Refuge believes that every organization
should be judged by how well it achieves its mission.
Transparency is key, therefore we openly publish our statistics.
We update this page quarterly.
Midwest Pet Refuge will not euthanize healthy, adoptable pets.
We sometimes have to make heartbreaking decisions
for animals with serious injuries or illnesses.
This is only as a last resort, and always at the recommendation of our veterinarian.
The only time we make the difficult decision to euthanize a healthy animal
is after we have carefully screened the temperament
and it is determined that the animal could pose a serious threat to the community.
Thankfully, we've only had to do this 1 time in the 5 years we've been in operation.
