The Pet Project Midwest (TPPM) is making the world a better place through kindness to animals. The Pet Project Midwest is a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping pets with the people who love them through proactive programming. We receive financial support through private donations, corporate sponsorships and grants. Our management team is an unsalaried board of directors.


We believe:

The way we treat animals says much about our view of the world. Therefore, kindness to animals creates a kinder world. That’s the world we believe in. That’s the world we support. That’s the world we’re going to build, one person at a time.Is this the world you believe in? If so, join us.Come on. We can do it. Together. We just have to believe.


  • No family should have to give up their pet because they can’t afford its food.

  • The best way to make sure all animals are loved is to spay and neuter.

  • The best way to make sure all animals are loved is to find them the right homes.

  • The best home may not always have four walls and a front door; homeless people need animal companionship, too
