Frequently Asked Donation Questions
Your generous donation will be used to support all the activities necessary to save more shelter animals in Hamilton County and beyond. Donations not designated for a specific program will be used where it is most needed to maximize our lifesaving work. Specifically, donations go toward veterinary care, supplies, and other general operations that increase our ability to save lives.
All donations made to Cincinnati Animal CARE support our lifesaving mission. Our comprehensive safety net requires critical needs that you may not have considered, and these fluctuate throughout the year as we respond to at-risk animals as they occur. When you generously give generally to our operations, you allow us to earmark money for animals and programs who need it most.
First of all, thank you for your support. We accept donations in person, through mail (Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society, 3949 Colerain Ave. Cincinnati, OH 45223) and online.
Monetary funds provide us the flexibility to respond to the most pressing needs we encounter every day. However, we also need supplies. To see a full wish-list, please visit our Amazon Wish List.
