Our shelter is staffed and run entirely by volunteers

The Ohio Hound Rescue was founded to save the lives of "high risk" dogs and cats, pulling them from high kill shelters in the areas surrounding Cincinnati, Ohio. Our goal is to steadily increase the number of foster homes so that we can save even more lives. All pets are spayed/neutered prior to adoption to help reduce the number of unwanted pets.

We have always lived in Cincinnati, and rescued pets from overcrowded and high-kill shelters

The votes are in, and spca cincinnati is proud to be named Best Pet Adoption, Best Shelter, and Best Rescue in the 21st Annual Reader’s Choice Poll sponsored by Cincinnati CityBeat Magazine. Thank you to all of those who made this possible!

Last year was such a huge success, and we are excited to be hosting My Furry Valentine 2017 again at the Sharonville Convention Center. This year’s Main Event will feature hundreds of adoptable pets (dogs, cats, puppies, kittens and other small critters) from dozens of different rescue and shelter groups from around the Greater Cincinnati area. Adoptable animals are gathered at a centralized location under one roof to make it easier to find your perfect pet!
