Best Places to Adopt a Pet in Mason, OH

September 23rd, 2021 by

Animals can bring so much joy into our lives. They make us laugh, comfort us, and can help us from getting lonely. If you’re considering bringing a new pet into your life and home, consider adopting one. Our team at Performance Honda of Fairfield has put together a list of places in the Mason, Ohio, area that you can visit to find the perfect furry friend to bring home.

 Sweet Dream House Rescue

While darling cats and dogs adopt out easily in most shelters, many get overlooked for a variety of reasons. The volunteers and staff at the non-profit Sweet Dream House Rescue take animals from high-kill shelters that may face euthanasia and place these animals in foster homes.

All of the dogs and cats get medical treatment, age-appropriate vaccinations, spayed or neutered, and microchipped. Once the animals are treated, they move to their loving foster homes until someone adopts them into their forever home. Find the pet of your dreams by emailing the staff at Sweet Dream House Rescue at [email protected] or by filling out the contact form on their website.

The Humane Association of Warren County

Stop by the only animal welfare shelter and adoption center in Warren County to look for your next dog or cat. The Humane Association of Warren County is a non-profit shelter that has provided loving care to homeless cats and dogs since 1973. In addition, the shelter has reunited numerous lost animals with their owners. The Humane Association of Warren County also offers spay and neuter clinics to help reduce the number of unwanted puppies and kittens.

If you would like to help save more lives of dogs and cats after you adopt yours and if you have the time, space, and resources, consider being a foster for these animals. As a foster, you provide a loving home for the dog or cat until they find a forever home. Stop by 230 Cook Rd. in Lebanon to see the adorable faces of cats and dogs ready for adoption at The Humane Association of Warren County.

Meanwhile, there are plenty of dog-friendly parks in nearby Fairfield that you can check out with your new pet once you’ve successfully adopted from the organization. 

Heartt Animal Refuge

It’s easy to find the pet of your dreams when you stop at Heartt Animal Refuge located at 11354 Reading Rd. in Cincinnati. This no-kill, non-profit shelter and adoption center runs on donations and volunteers to help save stray, homeless and abandoned animals of Cincinnati. You can easily search Heartt Animal Refuge’s website to find your forever pet or volunteer to see the animals and help make a difference in their lives. Another way to help the refuge out is to donate funds for food and medicine or sponsor a cat or dog so they can be fed and housed.

The Scratching Post

If you’re thinking of bringing a cat or kitten into your home, consider adopting one from The Scratching Post. This adoption center is a non-profit organization as well as a no-kill cat shelter. The volunteers that staff the center care for over 150 homeless cats and kittens at a time and in past years, they have been able to adopt out about 175 cats and kittens per year.

With such a variety of felines to choose from, you’ll find the perfect one or two to fall in love with and bring home. You can find The Scratching Post at 6948 Plainfield Rd. in Cincinnati.

SPCA Cincinnati

Since 1873, the SPCA Cincinnati, originally known as The Hamilton County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, has been helping find homes for stray and abandoned animals throughout the greater Cincinnati area. Every animal that comes through the doors of the SPCA Cincinnati gets medical attention, food, water, shelter, and exercise. The staff works compassionately with people who for whatever reason, must surrender their pet, and work diligently to help re-home these animals.

All of the adoptable animals get microchipped and get flea, tick, and heartworm medicine. The center makes sure that potential new pet owners match the animal’s personality, can financially and emotionally support their adopted pets, and will care for them properly. Stop by the SPCA Cincinnati at 11900 Conrey Rd.

Save the Animals Foundation

Save the Animals Foundation takes in mistreated dogs from puppy mills, cats and dogs from the street, ones that have been abused or abandoned, and senior animals that have been neglected. This 100% no-kill shelter provides a warm and loving environment for these animals until they can be placed in their forever home. The dogs and cats that come to Save the Animals Foundation receive medical care, are cared for by volunteer veterinarians, get fed high-quality food, and have their living spaces cleaned twice a day.

Programs offered at this animal rescue and adoption site include obedience training, cat socialization clinics, and open house fundraising events. Save the Animals Foundation is a non-profit organization run strictly by volunteers and funded by donations. You can visit Save the Animals Foundation at 4011 Redbank Rd. in Cincinnati.

Ohio Pet Sanctuary

Whether you want to adopt a dog, cat, rabbit, bird, pocket pet, or non-venomous reptile, you can find the perfect pet at Ohio Pet Sanctuary located at 8018 Beechmont Ave. in Cincinnati. The owner of the Ohio Pet Sanctuary saw a need for a shelter and adoption center for animals such as rabbits, ferrets, and pocket pets like hamsters and guinea pigs. Today, the Ohio Pet Sanctuary takes in hundreds of neglected rodents, reptiles, birds, dogs, and cats and funds their shelter through donations, fundraisers, and adoption fees.

All of us at Performance Honda of Fairfield hope you found the perfect pet to enrich your life from our list of recommendations. Did you bring home a cat, dog, ferret, or rabbit? A baby animal or a senior pet? If there’s another place to adopt animals in the Mason area that we missed, feel free to drop us a line and we’ll add it in.
