Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We operate as a flexible-intake shelter. We have an extensive network of foster homes which temporarily take in animals that might be too young, sick or scared for the shelter environment. Once a cat or dog is accepted into the adoption program, we work hard to find a permanent, loving home no matter how long it takes.

Charting impact

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

We will increase the number of pets helped by our services by through new and innovative programming, including taking dogs and cats from overcrowded shelters.

We will increase our animal welfare outreach and education efforts, such as contacting schools and groups to offer bite prevention and responsible ownership programs.

We will increase the services we offer pets in our care with improved accommodations and additional onsite medical care.

We will increase awareness of our organization in the central Ohio community through more targeted programming and communications.

• To assure integrity and the prudent use of resources.
• To cultivate a culture that values our employees, volunteers, partners, and the community that we serve.
• To treat all people and animals with compassion.
• To encourage and recognize teamwork, innovation, and mutual respect.
• To stay up to date with the newest information and best practices in operations and development.

• Increase animal adoptions
• Increase spay neuter initiatives
• Increase community outreach and education
• Build a comprehensive volunteer program
• Build donor and community relationships

We adopt over 1500 pets into loving homes,each year. We achieved this success through increased promotion and collaborative efforts with other agencies.


We saved 1500 pets that found their way to our shelter. Many animals came to us through strong relationships with other shelters throughout central Ohio. These relationships enable us to take pets that might not have the opportunity for adoption from other shelters, when space and finances allow.
