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.

Statewide Resources
Powered with resources.

To help Ohio families and their pets, OAA's Resource Directory puts local resources at your fingertips.

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

Pet Assistance Resources

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.

Community Cats

We provide resources and build partnerships to expand opportunities to humanely care for community cats while reducing populations and nuisances.

Tethered Dogs

We educate communities and local officials on the inhumane suffering and public safety concerns by tethering dogs outside.

Humane Education

The opportunity to build compassion for community, family and animals exists through humane education opportunities.
