December 1, 2015: For a second year, Humane Ohio is excited to announce our participation in Giving Tuesday! Giving Tuesday harnesses the collective power of nonprofits, businesses and corporations as well as families and individuals - to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.
This year, our Giving Tuesday will allow us to expand our spay/neuter services for pets throughout Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. Our goal is to raise $4200 on December 1st. Will you help us get there?

"NEUTER IS CUTER" FUNDRAISER
December 1 - December 31, 2015
We took a survey and everyone agrees - NEUTER IS CUTER! Help support Humane Ohio by purchasing a Neuter is Cuter card, like the one pictured here, from any of the area Pet Supplies Plus stores for just $1.
You can write your name or your pet's name on the card and hang it in the store window so everyone can see that you think neutered pets are cuter! These cards will be sold from December 1-31, 2015. Our goal is to raise over $10,000 for spay/neuter.

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. (Appointments only, no walk-ups).
