Spay and Neuter!

The best thing you can do is SPAY and NEUTER your pets. By ensuring that your animals do not have unwanted litters and by adopting rather than purchasing your new best friend, you will make a direct and lasting impact – helping SOS of Ohio to reduce the homeless pet population one spay or neuter at a time.

Volunteer at SOS of Ohio!

There are plenty of opportunities to help at SOS of Ohio. You can volunteer at special events, in the office, the recovery room, fundraising and more.

Proceeds from the sale of these plates will go to the Ohio Pet Fund, a nonprofit corporation. Money in the fund is used to support programs for the spaying and neutering of dogs and cats for adoption from Ohio shelters and nonprofit organizations, and for those pets whose owners are unable to afford its cost.

For more information about the project and how you can purchase a plate, visit www.petsohio.com.


While SOS of Ohio is not an animal shelter, we do work closely with over 40 nonprofit animal rescue groups. Many of the animals that receive our services are awaiting adoption and are the result of pet owners who neglected to spay and neuter their animals.

If you’re thinking of adding a pet to your family, here are five reasons to adopt your new best friend.

  1. You’ll save a life
  2. You’ll get a healthy pet
  3. You’ll save money
  4. You’ll feel better
  5. You won’t be supporting puppy mills and pet stores
