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!

Spread The Word

Pawsitive Hope, Inc. is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization providing our services as veterinarians, veterinary technicians and volunteers to care for the medical needs of animals who might otherwise be forgotten. We provide specialized medical care and foster-to-adopt programs because we believe all four-legged friends deserve a chance at a happy life.

Pawsitive Hope has Many Parts
We take in animals with medical issues from shelters, owner surrendered medical cases, and provide medical/surgical care to animals that are part of other rescues. We also care for and fund:

Advanced medical cases
Medical and foster care for dogs and cats of all ages, pregnant animals and their litters
Trapped community cat care/Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Release (TNVR): spay/neuter surgery, vaccination and fostering before being returned to their outdoor or new indoor home
Spay/neuter surgery for low-income, family owned pets
Foster care for hospice animals

Care for uncommon rescue creatures: bunnies, chinchillas and reptiles

Pets need stuff, too!

Pet owners understand the cost associated with caring for pets. They need medical care: vaccinations, parasite prevention (flea/tick/heartworm, etc.) and sometimes diagnostic testing and invasive medical care.  They need food, toys, beds, litter boxes and potty pads.  Animals need these things to help keep them 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.

"Fix-a-Family" Program

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. You can support the Fix-a-Family program when you purchase any of the products listed on the Bonfire page shared with Pawsitive Ohio.
