Mission

Rascal Charities is an organization serving animals in the State of Ohio. It was created to help control pet overpopulation, educate pet owners/caretakers, provide food for pets in need, and help subsidize emergency, surgery and medical costs for pets.

Notes from the nonprofit

We like to think of Rascal Charities as an organization that helps animals in all aspects of well being. Although our main target is to help control pet overpopulation, we also believe in the importance of the individual, not just 'herd health'. As such, our programs are designed to help animals in need and we are always open to new ideas and projects as long as funds are available.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Animal overpopulation, shelter overcrowding, and animal neglect/suffering are major problems in the State of Ohio. The lack of resources, especially in rural areas of the State, result in the inability of rescues, pet owners, and caretakers to properly provide for the animals in their care. In addition, animal hoarding is becoming more apparent and there are currently no good resources to assist humane organizations and law enforcement with the large number of cases.

Rascal Pit Fix

Rascal Pit Fix provides subsidized sterilization surgeries for Pit Bulls in the state of Ohio. For a cost to the owner of $20, the dog is sterilized and vaccinated against Rabies. We offer this service as a way to educate individuals about responsible ownership of the breed, decrease unwanted litters, and decrease the number of Pit Bull euthanasias.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. Help control pet overpopulation by making sterilization procedures affordable and accessible to individuals in need.

2. Educate pet owners and caretakers on better care of their animals to decrease euthanasia and surrender rates.

3. Help subsidize emergency procedures for pets of individuals and eligible rescue organizations undergoing financial hardship.

4. Decrease the incidence of preventable diseases by providing affordable and accessible wellness clinics.

5. Provide assistance and medical care to animals victim of cruelty and neglect.

6. Provide food and supplies to the animals of individuals in need.

By providing affordable and accessible sterilization and wellness clinics, we help control pet overpopulation and the spread of preventable diseases. By providing affordable and subsidized sick and emergency pet care, we increase the chance of the animals staying in their home instead of placing the burden on rescues to rehome them. We will be researching new avenues for funding and grants as well as developing new and different fundraising events to raise funds for our different programs. We are also in the beginning stages of a large project to create a self-sustaining facility to provide low cost sterilization and wellness care and generate funds to provide sick and emergency care for qualifying individuals and rescues.

We have the resources needed to provide the services described above without needing to outsource. With funding, we can utilize the mobile clinics to provide medical and surgical assistance to animals throughout the state, provide assistance to humane organizations and law enforcement in animal cruelty and neglect cases, and provide sick and emergency care to animals in need.

We have been able to provide funding towards sterilization as well as medical and surgical care for many animals throughout the State of Ohio. Our stray and feral TNR program is continuing to grow. We have been limited by available funding in the number of animals and individuals we can provide assistance for.
