WELCOME TO THE OHIO SPCA
The Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals works to prevent and stop cruelty to animals throughout Ohio. Our mission falls into three main areas: 1) intervention in cases of animal cruelty, 2) operation of a 40-acre farm animal sanctuary, and 3) rural county dog pound reform. For the past ten years the OHIO SPCA has been bringing reform to rural county pounds. As a result, the use of bullets, engine exhaust, gas boxes, and gas chambers has ended in all but a handful of counties. Our intervention has resulted in proactive adoption procedures, proper cleaning, spay/neuter programs, and humane euthanasia. Thousands of lives have been saved. Our work in this area is ongoing. Our animal sanctuary is home to over 100 farm and companion animals. Animals not adopted remain with us due to age or special needs. We pride ourselves in providing the best care possible. The sanctuary is a peaceful safe place for abused animals. With us, their bodies and spirits are made strong again.
