How to donate

The League depends on funding from community donations and grants to fulfill its mission to reduce the number of homeless cats and dogs in Greater Cincinnati. Whether it’s a one-time gift or a small amount charged monthly on a credit or debit card, every dollar helps ensure that a homeless dog or cat who needs shelter and loving care receives it. The League does not receive any government or national funding.

As an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit, contributions to the League are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
