New Clinic-Capital Campaign
Humane Ohio helps over 19,000 pets and pet caregivers each year in our small facility. The move to a larger building will have an enormous impact on the difference we can make in the Northwest Ohio/Southeast Michigan region for homeless pets. You can be a part of this life-saving mission!
In July 2002, we had an idea: what if we could solve the problem of pet overpopulation by treating it at it's source? Could we work actively to spay/neuter free-roaming cats and kittens before puberty? Could we reduce overcrowding in shelters? Could we help low income neighbors with affordable procedures?
The answer was a resounding yes, and Humane Ohio, a 501(c)(3) organization, was born.
We began with a monthly MASH (Mobile Animal Sterilization Hospital) for cats at risk. In 2006, we moved into our first stationary clinic, but quickly outgrew it by 2009 when we moved into our current facility. Now, 17 years after our first MASH unit, we've outgrown a second stationary clinic. It's time for us to open the doors to a new, larger, and better equipped clinic. Our animal friends need our help.
1.5 million animals are euthanized every year in the US... your contribution will help us spay/neuter nearly 10,000 more animals in our region annually.
How You Can Help!
Our current facility is dated, inefficient, and limits our ability to perform much needed services.
Please support our work by making a donation to the Let's Fix It campaign. Your gift will help us to spay/neuter more animals in our community and surrounding region for years to come.
Honor a beloved person or pet by naming a part of our new facility in their memory! It's a legacy of caring and compassion that will save the lives of thousands of our animal friends.

What we Provide...
In our early days, licensed veterinarians and clinicians volunteered part-time for spay/neuter services. Today, we have four full-time, licensed veterinarians (DVMs) as well as supporting, registered veterinary technicians.
Even basic veterinary care like spay/neuter surgery and life-saving vaccines can be financially out of reach for many people. We provide low-cost spay/neuter surgery and age-appropriate vaccines and services, so pets never have to suffer or be surrendered to a shelter for a preventable disease or pregnancy. Feral cats get their spay/neuter surgery, a rabies vaccine and an ear-tip to allow easy identification of cats that have already been fixed, preventing them from another trip to a clinic and possibly even unnecessary anesthesia and/or surgery.
Our volunteer Cattitude Team patrols neighborhoods humanely trapping feral cats for spay/neuter and later returning them to their natural environment.
We have a complete program that teaches individuals about free-roaming cat behavior and how to humanely trap and release them.
Low-cost outdoor shelters are available during winter months to keep neighborhood cats safe and warm during cold weather.
We also help feral cats who need additional services, such as amputations, would care, and treatment for eye conditions and upper respiratory infections.
In some cases, friendly, free-roaming cats and kittens are accepted into our adoption program. After receiving needed medical care, they go to foster homes for healing and tender loving care. Upon recovery, they are adopted into safe, indoor, forever homes. In 2019, 364 cats/kittens were adopted through this program.
We partner with animal shelters, rescue groups, animal control organizations, neighborhoods, social service agencies, and businesses to transport animals in need of spay/neuter services. Currently, we travel to locations in eleven different Counties in Ohio and Michigan to transport pets to our clinic for affordable spay/neuter. We also provide spay/neuter services before adoption to over 35 different shelters and rescue groups.
