Welcome to Midwest Pets For Life! We are pleased to be bringing such a needed service to Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois counties! Watch for programs that will target low-income, elderly, and disabled citizens, helping them to keep their beloved pet in their home rather than turning it over to a humane society or city "pound" by providing food assistance, low-cost spay-neuter services, and low/no-cost wellness clinics. Check back often for updated information.

Midwest Pets For Life is dedicated to assisting the elderly, the disabled, and low-income pet owners in times of need by offering pet retention programs, services and education, while implementing sustainable programs and services that enhance companion animal ownership.

To apply for our Animeals and Rescue Bank services, please fill out the MPFL application for services . Application must be filled out in its entirety or you will not be considered for benefits.

If you are interested in becoming an MPFL Board member, please visit our contact us page for an application.



If you are a Clinton resident and need to purchase a city tag for your pet, we can now be your one-stop shop for vaccinations and city tags. All city licenses are $10. These are available at our spay neuter clinics on the third Thursday of each month at the Lyons Depot, 56 - 25th Avenue North in the Lyons District.


Midwest Pets For Life is currently seeking qualified Foster Families to register in our database for availability when our clients are temporarily in a situation where they are separated from their beloved pet(s). For further information on what foster care entails and how to apply, please contact our organization at or by phone at 563.243.3106 or 563.321.2247.




No one should have to surrender their pets to a humane society or city “pound” simply due to adverse temporary problems. Some of these situations include an inability to afford the pet’s food, spay/neuter surgery and wellness checkups, upheaval during owner relocation, owner hospitalization, transportation or inability to provide adequate care. This is no reason to surrender the pet when Midwest Pets for Life can help keep pets and their families together.
