About Us

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, our online magazine and resource center OhioAnimalCompanion.org, workshops and classes, and our newest initiative which will be kicking off in 2018–our grants funding program.

Through these programs we have been able to reach over 73,000 people in Ohio with our message of responsible pet ownership and appreciation for all animals. Over the past five years Tackle Pet Hunger has provided over 16,000 pounds of cat and dog food to organizations dedicated to keeping pets in their homes and out of the shelter. We are excited to launch our grants funding program this year, which will focus on awarding small grants to organizations in areas of low cost spay/neuter, feral cat programs, and wildlife protection.
