Who We Are

So Much More Than A Shelter

Rescue Village is an animal welfare agency located in Geauga County, Ohio—but we are so much more than a shelter.

We are teachers, providing Humane Education programs to people of all ages across Northeast Ohio.

We are students, learning about our community and your needs, and constantly upping our game

We are caregivers, delivering the highest-quality veterinary care to our animals, as well as spay and neuter services for stray and outside owned animals.

We are a leader, serving as a model for other animal shelters across the United States.

We are a connector, bringing together organizations, businesses, and individuals within our community to work toward our shared vision of a more humane world.
