About Us

RESCUEDohio was founded on August 1, 2015 by a group of dedicated animal lovers in the central Ohio area.  The founders came from various different vocational backgrounds, but all have one thing in common:  the passion to save dogs.  Before starting RESCUEDohio, they were previously involved in different aspects of rescue, including fostering, fundraising, coordinating and training.  The mission of this group is to help find homes for unwanted and abandoned dogs and to advocate for the rights of all animals everywhere.

RESCUEDohio is a 501(c)3 organization that is run 100% by volunteers.  We have a board consisting of three members.

We would like to thank all of our current volunteers, donors, fosters and adopters!! We wouldn’t exist without you.
