Cabin Critters Rescue

Cabin Critters Rescue is a registered 501(3)(c) non-profit in Scioto County, Ohio, that is focused on animal rescue and education. Started in February of 2019, we have rescued over 200 dogs and cats. Our primary focus is to find loving homes for our furry friends where they will thrive and be loved for the rest of their lives.

Our mission is to:

  • To rescue animals from situations that are abusive, endangering or neglectful.

  • To assist owners willing to keep their dogs, by finding new homes for their dogs through the Corporation’s Owner Surrender Program, as an alternate to placing their dog in a public shelter or animal control facility.

  • To provide homes for these animals.

  • To place rescued animals into forever homes.

  • To educate and promote the importance of spaying/neutering companion animals.

  • To educate the public on how to help prevent animal cruelty.

  • To take the lead on educating and providing awareness in the community about responsible animal ownership and to instill that every animal has value.

  • To promote responsible caring attitudes toward animals and to strive to protect.

We just celebrated our one year anniversary!

Thank you to everyone that helped make us one of the fastest growing rescues in Scioto County. We're proud to be here and hope to continue to work with all of the other amazing rescues. Thank you!!

great news!

Cabin Critters Rescue has the opportunity to purchase property and a building to house their rescues as well as be able to do even more to help the community! This opens so many new doors for us as a rescue. We have been overwhelmed with how many animals have come to us to the point that we typically run out of foster homes, so we would rent kennel space. We normally only use this for short-term use, but we have decided that it's time to start looking for a more permanent location for our rescue.

We are asking for help though! We have set a goal to raise $50,000 within the next 3 months (by June of 2020). This includes the land, building and include any improvements that would be needed. Would you like to help us out? We could use sponsors to help with donations in the long run OR you could make a donation on here. Please look out for any of our future fundraisers!
