SPCA Cincinnati is an animal shelter and humane society that continually strives to strengthen the human-animal bond and improve the welfare of animals by fostering the humane care and treatment of all animals. Through humane education and animal protection, we improve the quality of life in our community.
Underlying the work at SPCA Cincinnati is the philosophy that how a community treats its animals is a reflection of how its members treat each other. The staff and volunteers of SPCA Cincinnati strive to not only give the animals in their care the best in humane treatment, but to continuously offer and develop programs to support those who own and care for animals.
In addition to being the official agency that oversees animal control in the community, SPCA Cincinnati offers many programs and services, including animal adoptions, animal cruelty investigations, spay/neuter and veterinary services, companion animal and wildlife rescue, dog licensing, foster care program, obedience training, and the area’s most extensive humane education program. SPCA Cincinnati also works to introduce animals into the lives of people in our community, including those in hospitals, nursing homes, children’s homes, and schools, and works with victims of domestic violence to both provide shelter for their animals, and to help them rehabilitate.
