we're CHANGING THE WAY COMMUNITIES THINK ABOUT ANIMAL WELFARE

A fundamental shift is starting to happen. As a result of our innovative programs, a new model based on providing helpful information, connecting people to resources and reimagining how we address at-risk animals is emerging. New thinking is gaining momentum nationally. And it’s originating right here.

We provide every fourth year student at The Ohio State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine a two week rotation in shelter medicine.

we're BRINGING NEW PERSPECTIVE TO THE CONVERSATION

It is our goal and our responsibility to share our story, and our thinking, with as many people as possible. That’s why we changed our name. To avoid confusion. And to make certain that when people are looking for the organization that’s leading the broader conversation about animal welfare, they know to look to us.

On average, we spay and neuter over 4,500 animals every year.

we continue to be a voice for those without one

It’s been that way throughout our 134-year history. And now, that voice is stronger than it has ever been. And that’s good news. Because it means more of everything. Collaboration. Education. Expertise. And, of course, more lives saved.

WE PROVIDE MORE THAN BELLY RUBS

You probably know we’ve been around town for a long time (134 years to be exact!) and you probably know that if you’re looking to adopt a pet, we have all kinds of wonderful animals available (dogs, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, birds and more!) but we offer many other services to the community that you may not know about. We believe our new name, Columbus Humane, more accurately reflects the many ways we serve Central Ohio.

Our work focuses on helping both animals and people. We provide a variety of important services to the Columbus area and work hard to develop cutting edge, innovative programs that protect and care for animals and serve and nurture the human-animal bond.
