Here for the dogs.

RESCUEDohio is a 501(c)3 organization that is run entirely by volunteers with no paid staff

Founded in August of 2015 by animal rescuers who wanted to do dog rescue differently
Our volunteers & board of 7 are “dog first” focused & work tirelessly to place dogs into loving, compatible homes
As a foster-based rescue, all dogs are in foster homes prior to adoption
Because we are all volunteers with day-jobs, families & other responsibilities, we do not have a physical location, phone number, or hours of operation. The best way to reach us is to email

What does the process with RESCUEDohio look like from start to finish? This video walks you through the journey of one dog from homeless to home for good, all thanks to our wonderful volunteers along the way.

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