OUR MISSION: To provide safe and loving homes for companion animals who would otherwise be destined for premature euthanasia at local shelters.
There are 45 cats and dogs for every person born. Only 1 out of 10 dogs born ever get a home. Only 1 out of 12 cats born ever find a home. 800 dogs & cats are KILLED each HOUR in the U.S, because there are not enough homes for them. Opt to adopt. Don't buy-especially from a pet store!

10th Annual Dog Walk Fundraiser
Check out some of the pictures from Sundays, Dog Walk Fundraiser (just click the picture to the left). The weather was awesome and it looks like a good time was had by all. A GREAT BIG THANK YOU goes out to everyone that attended. Thank you so much for helping the animals!
How awesome is the Material Girls Quilt Guild? We say absolutely AWESOME! They have once again donated 22 beds for the animals. The beds they make get used in the foster home and when the animal gets adopted their bed can go with them giving them something familiar when they are in their new home. Having something with their scent makes the move just a little easier. So we say THANK YOU once again to them. Just a quick note as you can see how much these beds are loved by the animals, that is Darlene on the top. Darlene is getting ready to be posted for adoption. I think she has picked the bed she would like to go home with!

Stella's first day home! She is the runt of Magpie's litter! SOS called her BeBe, but we renamed her Stella so she fit into this Italian family! She has been mellow and sweet all day and gets along with our cairn very well. Thank you, SOS, for rescuing Magpie and allowing us to bring Stella into our family! Patty S. from SOS is the most amazing foster mom anyone could ask for! Thank you!

Ink Cartridge Recycling...
Not recycling your empty ink or toner cartridges, donate them to SOS to help the animals. SOS recycles ink and toner cartridges and uses the money for office supplies. You can help the animals by simply dropping your ink and toner cartridges off at any SOS event. We collect them all year long.
Purina Weight Circles...
Use Purina products to feed your cat or dog? Did you know SOS could use them to help feed the animals. SOS collects Purina weight circles and we then turn them in to Purina for coupons to purchase food for the animals. You can drop them off at any SOS event or mail them to Save Ohio Strays, P.O. Box 16, Wadsworth, Ohio 44282. THANK YOU!

PLEASE SPAY & NEUTER! In 1990, an estimated 12 million animals were being euthanized in shelters across the country. Today, that number is 3.7 million. The only way to stop 3.7 million needless deaths is to stop overpopulation. Spaying and neutering is the best & most humane method. Here is a link to some affordable spay/neuter programs.
