OUR MISSION: To provide safe and loving homes for companion animals who would otherwise be destined for premature euthanasia at local shelters.
There are 45 cats and dogs for every person born. Only 1 out of 10 dogs born ever get a home. Only 1 out of 12 cats born ever find a home. 800 dogs & cats are KILLED each HOUR in the U.S, because there are not enough homes for them. Opt to adopt. Don't buy-especially from a pet store!

SOS offers a “TWICE AS NICE” program
Adopt one kitten that is fixed, wormed and up to date on shots for only $85, and your second kitten is no charge! Kittens always do better in pairs, and this is a great deal! SOS NEVER ships pets and will not adopt out to a driving radius greater than 3 hours from Medina, Ohio.

Some sad news...
Sweet Giselle crossed the rainbow bridge over the weekend. She came to SOS after being dumped outside in this horrible freezing weather. It was obvious she was someones cat for as sweet and loving as she was. It only took a few days before we new something was not right with her. So off to the vets office to see what was wrong. After many exams, x-rays, blood work, exploratory surgery that included biopsies we still did not have the answers we needed. Unfortunately she lost her battle with what ever was going on inside her before we could find out. I can at least say for her last three weeks of life she was warm, feed and most of all LOVED! So I say THANK YOU to all those that donate to Save Ohio Stays as we would not be able to do this with out you. Giselle's last three weeks could have been very different if it weren't for you and your love of animals. Kelly, SOS foster
Ink Cartridge Recycling...
Not recycling your empty ink or toner cartridges, donate them to SOS to help the animals. SOS recycles ink and toner cartridges and uses the money for office supplies. You can help the animals by simply dropping your ink and toner cartridges off at any SOS event. We collect them all year long.
Purina Weight Circles...
Use Purina products to feed your cat or dog? Did you know SOS could use them to help feed the animals. SOS collects Purina weight circles and we then turn them in to Purina for coupons to purchase food for the animals. You can drop them off at any SOS event or mail them to Save Ohio Strays, P.O. Box 16, Wadsworth, Ohio 44282. THANK YOU!
