Who We Are:

Cause For Paws is a non-profit, 501c3, volunteer based, all-breed dog/cat rescue founded in Chillicothe Ohio but serving Central Ohio. The animals receive updated vaccinations and spay/neuter (at 6 months of age) as part of our adoption policy.

Our Mission:

To save the lives of Ohio's homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens, and provide necessary medical treatment, safe shelter, and a loving, dedicated forever home.

To promote the safety and well being of domestic animals, including the need to neuter/spay, and give guidance on the responsibilities associated with being a pet owner.

To educate the public on the inconsistencies and failures of animal rights enforcement, including laws, abuse, shelters, puppy mills, etc., and assist law makers with educational tools and information to enact proper regulations for Ohio's needy animals.
