IHN Pet Care

Our Pet Program shelters dogs, cats, and other pets whose owners are experiencing homelessness and are linked up with social services in Cincinnati. We care for these owner's animals until they secure pet-friendly permanent housing and are able to be reunited with their animal. We typically have 15-20 animals in shelter. We are in need of volunteers to come in and help the pet program coordinator take care of these animals while their families are working to achieve self-sufficiency and move into housing. The amount of animals we have differs from week to week. Responsibilities would include:

- Giving water and food, based on specific instructions, to animals

- Cleaning litter boxes and outdoor dog area

- Spending time/playing with animals for exercise and social well-being

- Communicating with the Pet Coordinator about any problems or issues

Shifts would be approximately 2 hours on any day of the week.

Foster homes are also needed to increase the amount of animals we keep with families and out of animal shelters! If interested in fostering, we help with all veterinary needs and supplies. We can make a match based on what type of animal you are able to care for in your home.
