Ohio’s Voice for Animals
Ohio’s Voice for Animals.

We strive to make Ohio a place where all animals are protected from cruelty, abuse, and neglect.

OAA Donate
Where your support goes.

We lead and collaborate with teams across Ohio to champion humane policy and coexistence with animals deserving of respect and protection.

OAA Volunteer
It takes a village.

An animal compassionate one. We welcome Ohioans looking to turn their compassion into action.

Making a Difference

Advocacy Networks

Fundamental change can be accomplished only through the collaborative efforts of diverse groups who come together to work on innovative solutions.

Community Compassion

Systemic change happens when communities learn to enhance the human-animal bond, improve safety, and increase their compassion for animals.

OAA Resource Directory

When resources are critical to action and advocacy, it is important to have  a source for statewide connections that help Ohio and Ohio animals.

Pet Assistance

To support struggling families and their pets, we provide valuable resources such as a list of programs designed for seniors and low-income families.

Pet Protection

We advocate for at-risk family members and safety planning for their pet(s) because we recognize a link between animal abuse and family violence.

Wildlife Protection

An opportunity exists for a new approach to learning how we can coexist with wildlife and advocate for protective policies at the state and local level.
