What We Do
More than just adoptions!
Rescue Village is a community center for animals and their people. We are about keeping you and your pets together. We are a gathering place for people who want to volunteer time, access educational opportunities, and find kindred spirits. We offer support for each animal from the moment they arrive at Rescue Village until well after they are adopted and placed in a permanent home, including behavioral training and advice, and more.
In addition to our vital work with our animals, we host a wide variety of programs, services, and fundraising events throughout the community. We are the only humane society in the region with a barn program and with a dedicated full-time Humane Education department, which serves Northeast Ohio with a variety of outreach programs.
Through grant support and our partnership with the ASPCA, we are able to go above and beyond for dogs that have behavior challenges. We don’t give up on them, and work extra hard to see that these dogs find the right home.
A humane world where animals are treated with compassion and respect.
To act on behalf of animals and inspire people to build a more humane community.
