APA El Refugio

El Refugio is a non-profit Animal Protection Association (Civil Association), founded in 1999 and located in Montevideo, Uruguay. Today we house 370 dogs and 40 cats, all rescued from the most diverse situations of abuse, neglect and cruelty. Once recovered, neutered and vaccinated, the search for a responsible home for them begins .

Our mission is to help all the animals that are in El Refugio today to find a family that loves, cares for and protects them, and to provide the best quality of life to those who, for various reasons, cannot be adopted. Through educational campaigns, we aim to raise awareness about the responsible ownership of companion animals and promote a philosophy of respect for life, in all its forms.

We need your support to continue with our mission. Become a collaborating partner and help us with the maintenance, feeding and veterinary expenses of so many animals under our charge.

Paws Ohio

The Public Animal Welfare Society, Inc. (PAWS) was founded in 1976. We are a 501(3)(c) non-profit, no-kill organization considered to be one of Ohio’s most reputable long-standing cat and dog humane rescue groups. Our mission is to rescue, foster, and adopt companion animals in Northeastern Ohio.

Additionally, we provide medical treatment for injured or sick animals we take in as well as spaying and neutering services. We are also deeply involved in Animal Welfare Legislation and our Executive Director, Amy Beichler, was the driving force behind the passage of Goddard’s Law in 2016 which made it a felony to abuse companion animals in Ohio.

We are a volunteer based organization governed by a Board of Volunteer Directors.  PAWS is managed by an Executive Director and an Associate Director who control the day-to-day operations. Under the Executive Director, we have volunteer coordinators that manage a number of specific departments within PAWS, as well as a host of dedicated volunteers who give their time and efforts to PAWS-related tasks and events.

Best Friends Animal Society

We started with little fanfare and even fewer resources: creating a sanctuary for homeless and special-needs animals literally from the ground up, forging roadways and erecting buildings with our bare hands. We were creating a better world through kindness to animals.

One of A Kind Pet Rescue

One of A Kind Pet Rescue is a non-profit organization founded in November 2005 and is funded by private donations. The organization is dedicated to saving animal lives, rescuing pets in imminent danger of euthanasia, spaying/neutering and adoption of homeless animals into appropriate, loving homes.

We are a no-time-limit shelter and no adoptable animal is euthanized. Many of our animals come from Animal Control Facilities (the pound) just prior to their scheduled euthanasia. Sick or injured animals brought to us by Good Samaritans are often given priority. Owner surrenders and strays are accepted when space is available.

American Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®(ASPCA®) was the first humane society to be established in North America and is, today, one of the largest in the world.

Our organization was founded on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans and must be protected under the law. Headquartered in New York City, the ASPCA maintains a strong local presence, and with programs that extend our anti-cruelty mission across the country, we are recognized as a national animal welfare organization.

The ASPCA’s mission, as stated by founder Henry Bergh in 1866, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.”
