Positive Impact

 Dedicated to creating positive impact for animals in Ohio


Ohio Animal Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Columbus, Ohio. Our mission is to create positive impact for animals through education, funding and advocacy. We do this through a variety of programs, including our annual Tackle Pet Hunger community pet food drive, education and outreach activities, and our newest initiative — our grants funding program.

Through these programs we have been able to reach over 99,000 people in Ohio with our message of responsible pet ownership and appreciation for all animals. Over the past seven years Tackle Pet Hunger has provided over 25,000 pounds of cat and dog food to organizations dedicated to keeping pets in their homes and out of the shelter. Our grants funding program launched in 2018 and has provided support to Ohio organizations working in the areas of low cost spay/neuter, feral cat initiatives, rescue and shelter services and wildlife protection.
