Spay and Neuter!
The best thing you can do is SPAY and NEUTER your pets. By ensuring that your animals do not have unwanted litters, and by adopting rather than purchasing your new best friend, you will make a direct and lasting impact – helping SOS of Ohio to reduce the homeless pet population one spay or neuter at a time.

While SOS of Ohio is not an animal shelter, we do work closely with over 40 nonprofit animal rescue groups. Many of the animals that receive our services are awaiting adoption and are the result of pet owners who neglected to spay and neuter their animals. If you’re thinking of adding a pet to your family, here are five reasons to adopt your new best friend.

  1. You'll save a life
  2. You'll get a healthy pet
  3. You'll save money
  4. You'll feel better
  5. You won't be supporting puppy mills
