"NEUTER IS CUTER" FUNDRAISER AT PET SUPPLIES PLUS
November 1 - December 31, 2013:
Our "Neuter is Cuter" fundraiser is taking place at Pet Supplies Plus stores in Toledo, Adrian MI and Monroe MI, and at Ralphie's restaurants in Toledo, Findlay, Lima and Marion OH. Stop in to purchase a $1 Neuter is Cuter card, write your name or your pet's name on it and hang it in the store/restaurant window to show how important you think spay/neuter is!
100% of the proceeds go to Humane Ohio to help us keep our spay/neuter prices low for the community so we can reduce the pet homelessness and prevent unwanted litters.

FREE PET TRANSPORTATION TO/FROM HUMANE OHIO
We now offer a pet transportation service for pet parents and free-roaming cat caretakers who want to take advantage of Humane Ohio's low-cost spay/neuter prices, but don't have transportation or can't get to Humane Ohio at our normal drop-off and pick-up times. We've partnered with the Chester Zablocki Senior Center and That Neighborhood Church on the north side; the Providence Center on the south side; the East Toledo Family Center on the east side; the Mayores Senior Center on the west side. These locations will serve as the drop-off and pick-up points for animals. Transports will run from each location at least once a month. Click here for locations and dates, then call our transport coordinator Dena Clark at 567-395-7500 to reserve your spot (appointments only, no walk-ups).

ATTENTION 43605, 43609 AND 43615 ZIP CODES
We have secured funding from PetSmart Charities® that allows us to spay/neuter owned and free-roaming cats in Toledo's 43605, 43609 and 43615 zip codes for FREE! If you live in one of these areas and have an owned cat, or care for a friendly stray or feral/wild cat, please give us a call at 419-266-5607 (proof of residency required). Help us spread the word!
Flyer: FREE Spay/Neuter in 43605, 43609 and 43615
Previously, Humane Ohio fixed 2,516 cats from the 43605 and 43609 zip codes and placed over 260 friendly strays and kittens into Planned Pethood's adoption program. As a result, the Toledo Area Humane Society's cat intake went down by 34% in the 43605 zip code and 50% in the 43609 zip code! To continue this past success, FREE spay/neuter for cats in the three target zip codes mentioned above will be offered on an ongoing basis until we fix another 2,917 free-roaming and owned cats.
