Slide 1
How To Help: Adopt & Foster

Both have the goal of providing a permanent and loving home to an animal. One of the best ways you can contribute is to provide a temporary or permanent home to an animal in need.

Slide 2
How To Help: Volunteer

A lot of pets that end up in shelters are strays or were given up for adoption. Help us give them the attention and support they need by volunteering.

Slide 3
How To Help: Donate

Not everyone has the time or living situation to volunteer, adopt, and/or foster. If you still want to help, donations in the form of food, toys, or money go a long way.

We provide advanced medical care and fostering because all of our four-legged friends deserve a chance!

Help The Animals

Pet owners understand the cost associated with caring for pets. Food, vaccinations, flea control, toys, beds and medical assistance are all required to keep a pet happy and healthy. It all adds up far too quickly. Shelters and rescues deal with these financial challenges every day. Regardless of whether our economy is up or down, abandoned and lost pets who have found their way to our shelter need the continued generosity of others for food, shelter and medical care. If you would like to help, please consider ordering something from our Amazon wishlist or donating directly via PayPal.

Spread The Word

Pawsitive Ohio is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization with the goal to end the needless deaths of homeless dogs in Northeast Ohio and to be a resource for the animal welfare agencies throughout the state. Their focus is on raising funds for low-cost spay/neuter programs, comprehensive adoption programs, creating a coalition within the Northeast Ohio rescue groups and offering education for the community-at-large on adoption, breed discrimination and the benefits of altering pets to reduce the population.
Funds raised through shirt sales will support our spay/neuter mission including Pawsitive Hope's "Fix-a-Family" initiative. This program helps families who need assistance with a pregnant dog (and sometimes even cats), or mom with a litter. They help provide medical care to mom and pups while the babies grow. Once the puppies are weaned, Pawsitive Hope fixes the mom (and dad dog if he's around) for free, and give them back to owners. The puppies are surrendered into the rescue where they are vaccinated, dewormed, given flea preventative, microchipped, spay/neutered. Then the process begins to find their furever home.
