CINCINNATI ANIMAL CARE

Image_202109230711

We have over 100 dogs at the shelter at a time and our Walk Team gives these dogs a chance to get out of their kennel and stretch their legs. Walk Team helps with the socialization of these dogs by interacting with them 5 days a week. Our dogs at the shelter are typically on the medium to large size, with 30lbs being the smallest. We have energetic dogs and strong dogs so being able to handle this type of a dog is extremely important. This is a great opportunity to get out and about while helping out these homeless animals and staying active yourself! Walk group typically has about 15 people depending on the day and lasts 3 hours but if you need to come late or leave early you certainly can. Our dogs are put on a color level depending on their history and personality and volunteers are matched up with those colors based off their experience and number of hours volunteering. Volunteers are able to jump to the next level to handle some of the more difficult dogs should they want to!

About CINCINNATI ANIMAL CARE

Location:

3949 COLERAIN AVE, CINCINNATI, OH 45223, US

Mission Statement

We believe that every animal deserves a chance at a live outcome, should be treated as an individual, and that lifesaving is a community ethic. We trust our community and hope you’ll trust us. We promise to always be transparent with our community- you’ll always have a 'noses in, noses out’ monthly data report. You’ll always know exactly where we stand. At Cincinnati Animal CARE, we treat every animal as an individual and assess their health and temperament holistically. When we euthanize an animal, it is because we have exhausted ALL other options for a live outcome and have determined that the animal is suffering too greatly, without good prognosis, from an illness or injury or they are a true public safety risk.

Description

We operate with the belief that an animal shelter is no place to live. We believe the best thing we can do for animals in Hamilton County is to keep them out of the shelter to begin with. We are committed to comprehensive programming that works with pet owners first to seek solutions to financial, behavioral, or housing problems that are hindering responsible pet ownership with the goal of keeping pets in homes. In the event that an animal must enter our care, we believe a robust foster program is the answer to providing re-homing support while keeping them out of the shelter.

Every animal in our care will receive immediate, individual attention and consideration. Each animal is placed on a live outcome plan upon arrival and our staff are compassionate and trained in best practices to ensure the exceptional care of every animal. "The Five Freedoms" are just the minimum. We will always act with a sense of urgency when lives are on the line.
