About League for Animal Welfare
Founded in 1949, League for Animal Welfare is a privately funded, non-profit organization providing much-needed care for unwanted, lost and neglected cats and dogs in our community. As the oldest and one of the largest no-kill shelters in the area, the League serves the Greater Cincinnati area through initiatives to reduce the number of homeless animals and to help people better care for their pets. Using the resources of its dedicated staff, volunteers and supporters, the League provides the medical care, behavioral training and socialization needed to match homeless animals with lifelong homes. The League’s shelter has the capacity to care for approximately 40 dogs and 100 cats with the goal of permanent placement in appropriate, screened, loving homes. Volunteers foster additional dogs and cats and bottle-feed kittens and puppies in their own homes until they are eligible for adoption.
