The Critter Carriage:

We hope to earn money to purchase a used school bus and remodel the inside (and paint it blue) as a comfortable transport vehicle for our animals.  We especially want it for outdoor adoption events.

About Us...
The Ohio Pet Sanctuary is more than a rescue and more than a pet store.  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.  You can feel good in the knowledge that you see the animals you are helping with your purchase, rather than donating extra money without seeing the animals you help.

We are based just east of Cincinnati, Ohio in Anderson Township.  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.

Thank You To Our Valued Friends!

The Big Finish!

Our goal is to expand from our current 3000 SqFt facility to a minimum 10,000 SqFt!

This expansion will all us to QUADRUPLE our animal capacity.  We also would like to include a low-cost spay/neuter clinic and add dogs to the list of animals we will be able to help.  This is a HUGE goal but we have faith that it will happen!

Above is Garak.  In 2009, Garak was found in a park outside of Cincinnati.  A stray ferret.  He was brought to the county animal shelter where he was adopted and given a loving home.  Two years later, Kes (to the right) was found in a nearby area as she wondered onto someone's porch.  These two bring to light that all species need someone to care for them when their owners cannot any more.  They are the inspiration for the creation of the Ohio Pet Sanctuary.
Update:  On the morning of October 11th, 2012, Garak lost his battle with cancer and passed away peacefully in the arms of his "Mommy."  He still is the inspiration for this facility and we hope to create a ferret playground for the residents in his honor.
