Founded in 1949, the League for Animal Welfare is a privately funded, nonprofit organization providing much-needed care for unwanted, lost and neglected cats and dogs in our community. The League's mission is to reduce the number of homeless cats and dogs in Greater Cincinnati by providing a compassionate no-kill animal shelter and programs that promote responsible pet care. As the oldest and one of the largest no-kill shelters in the area, the League uses the resources of its dedicated staff, supporters, and volunteers to provide the medical care, behavioral training and socialization needed to successfully match homeless animals with lifelong homes. The League's shelter has the capacity to care for approximately 40 dogs and 80 cats with the goal of permanent placement in loving homes. Volunteers foster additional dogs and cats and bottle feed kittens and puppies in their own homes.
