Pets In Need Midwest, as well as many other shelters and rescues, have been experiencing a large increase of owner surrenders due to the economy. Accordingly, our expenses have increased dramatically. It is expensive to feed, house, and provide medical care for animals in the best of times, but donations have decreased, and we are finding it increasingly more difficult to keep up. We, like many other shelters, need your continued support. Any help you provide will be greatly appreciated. Please support your local animal shelter. We thank everybody who has given a new home to an animal from ANY shelter and for your continued support. Thank you all so much for caring!
Please check out our website at www.petsinneedmidwest.org for additional information.
Rudy Klimo, cofounder of Pets In Need Midwest, passed on June 17, 2009. He was surrounded by friends and family in the home that he built for himself, Pat, and the animals. The animals that Rudy cared for and loved who passed before him met him at the Rainbow Bridge. Together they crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Rudy's spirit will not be forgotten and continues to spur us on to help as many animals as we can.
If you already have a dog and are thinking of adopting an animal, please bring your dog with for the meet and greet at Petco. We understand that some families have cats and they might not travel outside the home. No worries, you can setup a home visit. We strive to ensure that all parties are involved in the adoption process!
Pets In Need Midwest was founded in 1991 by Pat and Rudy Klimo in Ringwood, Illinois. We are a state licensed No Kill, Nonprofit Animal Shelter. We do not receive any government funds. We rely solely on adoption fees, private donations, and fundraising activities.
Our Mission is to "Champion the humane treatment of domesticated animals through the following means":
