Once an animal is rescued by the Ohio SPCA, the road to recovery begins! Qualified veterinarians evaluate the animals and give them immediate medical care. From the tiny dove to the big bovine, we give animals a second chance at life. Many of the animals we rescue are in such poor condition that they have to be hospitalized for days or even months at a time. Animals are then taken to the dog and cat shelter, placed in foster homes or on privately-owned farms, or adopted out, so that they are given the love and care they have always deserved. It can take months of rehabilitation before an animal is ready for adoption. Veterinary care is costly, especially when hospitalization and or/surgeries are required. Food and routine care quickly add up, especially for large animals, such as those on our Farm Sanctuary. Vaccinations, spaying and neutering, hoof care, surgeries, and dental procedures are often required in addition to emergency life-saving treatment. In animal cruelty cases involving a large number of animals, costs can quickly escalate into the tens of thousands of dollars. 



Once an animal is healthy again, they are ready to be adopted. There is no time limit on adoption and animals, regardless of age or special needs, can remain in the care of the Ohio SPCA for the remainder of their lives!
