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.

Why are we the greatest rescue around?!  Our people!!  RESCUEDohio is a 501(c)3 organization that is run 100% by volunteers.  We have a board consisting of three members and over 300 volunteers who work together to save lives.  Get to know a few of them below:

One of our featured volunteers of the month is Tiffany. Tiffany works in accounting, owns her own home and has three awesome dogs, Suzy, Simon and Kane. She has been volunteering with Rescuedohio since Dec of 2016.   She contributes in many ways including fostering, home visits, transport and application processing but we all agree her strength is handling the large adults pups who come into Rescued Ohio.  Tiffany uses her years of experience and natural instinct to help transition some of our more challenging dogs into someone’s perfect forever pet.   Tiffany serves as a leader within the foster group, always encouraging others and lending a hand to help newer fosters who benefit from her experience.   She says “stepping out of your comfort zone is only uncomfortable for a moment.  Then you get good at whatever you were scared to try and wonder why you never did it sooner.”   When asked why she chooses to save dogs with us, Tiffany says its because RESCUEDohio is family and we don’t give up on each other.  It is because we are so strong together, that we are able to save so many dogs that need us. Once you adopt, foster or volunteer with Rescuedohio, you are part of that family and someone will always be there for you.  We totally agree Tiffany and are thankful for all that you do!


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