CINCINNATI GIVES CHALLENGE: crowdrise.com/ucan-nonprofit-spay-and-neuter-clinic-cincinnatigives2018

Established 2001

Mission Our mission is to provide professional, low-cost spay/neuter services to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable homeless cats and dogs in shelters in the Greater Cincinnati area, including surrounding counties in Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeast Indiana, and to help owners keep their beloved pets in their homes by avoiding
preventable illnesses.

Serving Our Community Millions of dogs and cats are killed in shelters every year due to lack of space/resources. Pets are surrendered to shelters because unsterilized pets have unwanted babies, and pet owners living in poverty are forced to surrender their beloved pets when they contract preventable, costly illnesses.

Pets provide love and companionship and research shows that having a pet provides many health benefits, including prevention of heart disease, allergies, and depression.
To prevent unwanted litters and enable pets to live longer, healthier lives, we provide low-cost spay/neuter surgeries (free to those who cannot afford it), core vaccines, and other wellness services to cats and dogs. To ensure everyone has access to our spay/neuter services, we provide free transports to our clinic from 12 surrounding counties.
