The Public Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) was founded in 1976. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. It is a PAWS policy to adopt animals to responsible homes only in the greater Cleveland area. We provide medical care to rescued animals and foster them in our own homes. We also make sure that they are spayed or neutered so that they do not continue the cycle of births that result in more pets than homes. The advantage of adopting a fostered animal is that we know all about our adoptable pets! They have lived with us and we know their personalities, habits, likes and dislikes. We can help you find the perfect companion for your home and lifestyle! We are a no kill organization (the only time we euthanize is on the advice of a vet in order to end suffering where no hope of recovery exists).

New or gently used leashes and collars of any size, and especially small and medium sizes, for our foster dogs would be greatly appreciated.

Primarily, (not limited to) our orphaned dogs are pulled from euthanizing shelters and given a new chance at life. Our goal is placement into companion homes well matched for human and dog. The Sporting Dog classified as a sporting breed, hunting dog or gun dog does not necessarily mean 'for hunting only'. Most of the dogs taken into rescue are because they "would not hunt". The sporting breeds are sensitive, intelligent and 'wanting to please' dogs. Given attention, interaction and exercise these dogs make excellent companions for life - no hunting required!

Mid Ohio Animal Welfare League, Mansfield, Ohio Mid Ohio Animal Welfare League Mansfield, OH 44907
We are a group of animal lovers who have joined together to promote animal welfare concerns in our community. When able, we bring animals into our available foster homes to rehome with their forever family. Spay and neuter education and low-cost clinics are crucial in addressing the overpopulation problem in our shelters and pounds. We believe no animal should spend its life on a chain. Nor should any animal be treated like a commodity, which is why we are against buying that 'cute little doggy in the window' at your local petstore. Please opt to adopt. We do not have a shelter. We operate solely from foster homes. MAWL has to turn away animals in need on a regular basis due to lack of foster homes. Please consider becoming a foster. We provide vet care and food for the animal while in your care. Email us for further information. Check out the MAWL website for all the latest fundraisers, events and updates!

Ladybugs K9 Rescue, Bellville, Ohio Ladybugs K9 Rescue Bellville, OH 44813
We are 3 people who just love dogs! We believe that all dogs deserve a family, not a cage. Until there are laws that protect dogs better, and shut down the mills, we will be out there, saving as many as we can. From having to live a life thatís only purpose is trying to survive, being kept in cages with no human contact, no love, no grass to run and play in, no toys, being bred as often as they come into heat, or being destroyed when they are no longer useful because the puppy mill does not want to spend money feeding a dog who is useless. We buy the puppies that are going to be destroyed, are going to get sent to an auction, or are injured and/or ill. We take them in, get them healthy, and begin the process of teaching them how to live outside of the cage.

Maple Hill Farm Toy Breed Rescue, Butler, Ohio Maple Hill Farm Toy Breed Rescue Butler, OH 44822
Maple Hill Farm Toy Breed Rescue is a group of small animal lovers trying to make a difference in the lives of unwanted animals. Our goal is to help rescue and find homes for homeless dogs and, in particular, the dogs once used in puppymills for breeding. We do not have a shelter, so all of our dogs are kept in experienced foster homes. Some of our animals are just learning how special the human touch can be, therefore, we work hard at socializing and loving them until they are ready to be adopted. It is our desire to match the perfect dog to the perfect new forever home. All of our dogs have been completely vetted. They are up-to-date on all shots, heartworm negative and on preventative when in season. All dogs have been spayed/neutered unless they are deemed too young by our vets. These dogs will be adopted on a spay/neuter contract.

Wayne County Humane Society, Inc. provided compassion to the animals entrusted to our care, to measurably reduce companion animal overpopulation and to take a leadership role in educating and promoting humane values. The Wayne County Humane Society is a small non-profit organization that cares for a segment of our community that is often overlooked. Providing quality medical care to our animals and adequate shelter and adoption/rescue services is our charge. These efforts are made possible by the generosity of folks who share our love for animals. We are so grateful for all of our adopters, fosters, volunteers, donors and friends throughout the year. But right now, we need a little extra help. Even a gift as small as $5 can help save lives. Those funds go directly toward giving shelter to an animal who has suffered abuse or neglect; providing quality medical care to the animals entrusted to our care; controlling the animal population by ensuring that all animals leaving the shelter are spayed or neutered and keeping our neighborhoods safe and healthy for both animals and humans. If you are a lover of animals, please consider making a donation today to support our operations.
