The League for Animal Welfare is a voluntary, nonprofit, humane organization chartered in 1949. The League for Animal Welfare, which has operated as a no-kill shelter since 1964, is dedicated to bettering the lives of companion animals in the Greater Cincinnati area by providing shelter, adoption, public education, and spay/neuter programs.
The League for Animal Welfare receives no government support. All programs are financed solely by donations, membership, contributions, and fundraisers. Except for a small paid shelter staff, all efforts are carried out by volunteers. All contributions made to the League are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Matching People to Pets
When you see the animal you want to adopt, please call or visit the shelter to get more information. Adoptions must be completed at our shelter. When you come in, we'll ask you some questions about your family, lifestyle, housing situation, and current expectations so that our staff can best match your needs with our great shelter residents.
