Did you know that Greater Cincinnati and the surrounding regions have a wide variety of options for adopting your next pet? Adopt Cincinnati’s primary focus is to promote the adoption of dogs and cats in our area, but the site also features resources for adopting other types of pets. Under the Directory of Rescues, you’ll also find rescues for small mammals (including guinea pigs, rabbits, and ferrets), horses, and even reptiles!
Adopt Cincinnati was launched in part because many people seem to be unaware of the variety of options for adoption beyond traditional animal shelters. Sure, most people are aware of their local county shelters, but many people are surprised to learn that Cincinnati has a number of no-kill shelters. Even fewer people are aware of rescue groups as well as the fact that purebred dogs can be adopted through some of these groups. The goal of Adopt Cincinnati is to raise awareness of the many choices for pet adoption.
We invite you to peruse the directories by navigating through the menu panel. Under Directory of Shelters, you will find listings of traditional and no-kill shelters. Under Directory of Rescues, you will find all-breed and breed-specific dog rescues as well as rescues for cats, small mammals, horses, and reptiles. While the site is called Adopt Cincinnati, we have compiled resources that extend beyond Cincinnati. If your shelter or rescue group is not listed, please contact us to be listed.
Thank you for your interest in pet adoption in Greater Cincinnati!
