Pets In Need of Greater Cincinnati, Inc.


Established 2012

Mission To provide affordable, high-quality veterinary care to allow individuals and families of limited means to enjoy the benefits of healthy and responsible pet ownership.


Serving Our Community Pets In Need is committed to its mission of keeping pets healthy and together with the people who love them. We believe that everyone deserves to have the joy of a pet and that all pets deserve to have a loving home and quality veterinary care.

Located in Lockland, our clinic serves pet families whose total household income is at or below 150 percent of the federal poverty level. It is the only resource of its kind anywhere in the Greater Cincinnati area. There are no geographic restrictions. As of 9/30/15, pets from more than 1,800 low-income homes were enrolled and eligible for services.

The clinic provides:

  • Wellness care, including vaccines and parasite control
  • Diagnostic testing
  • Treatment of minor health issues
  • Vouchers for low-cost spay/neuter surgeries
  • Monthly flea and heartworm prevention
  • Pet food through Steffi’s Pantry
