The Ohio Pet Sanctuary

Who we are....

 Our facility is a temporary home for animals of varying species who need shelter and food while waiting for their forever home.  Food and medical care is funded by purchases you make to care for your own pets.  We believe that not only dogs and cats are in need of a place to stay and provide for multiple species.  Our volunteer-based staff is devoted to animal care and well being and help match pets with people to love them.

Meeting Our Birds

We keep our birds up away from the public for the safety of the visitors and the birds.  Birds DO bite and especially ones in stressful situations. We also have some birds in foster so that all of their needs can be met. Due to these facts birds may ONLY be viewed by appointment. If you wish to meet our birds for possible adoption YOU MUST CALL THE SHELTER. We will be more than happy to schedule a time for  you to come meet the birds when we have the proper staff available.


Thank you to our valued friends!

Our facility has many valued friends who assist us with caring for our animals and offer important services that we may not such as emergency care, dogs, vet services, and others. We encourage you to visit them.
