The Found House Pet Support Program provides temporary shelter for dogs, cats, and other pets whose owners are in transition in the Greater Cincinnati area. We work with owners seeking shelter for themselves or seeking medical help or rehabilitation services. Many pet owners will not surrender their animal and therefore not access needed services for themselves. Some pet owners will pursue surrendering their animal in order to receive help, causing trauma to everyone involved. Our program gives pet owners an opportunity to access services without having to surrender their animal, keeping the entire family together.

In addition to sheltering animals, we provide resources to low income pet owners. We assist with pet food and supplies, medical care, and access to pet rental deposit funding.

We rely on volunteers to care for the animals in our program until they are able to reunite with their owners. To volunteer, please apply here!

We are always seeking new foster homes to be able to keep more families together. If you are interested in fostering, please email

If you are in need of shelter for your pet or need help with resources, please call 513-471-1100 Extension 125.
