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!

Rudy needs a home for Christmas!
Rudy is a sweet and gentle soul... like Santa Claus!
Rudy is funny and cute.. like an elf!
But mostly Rudy is super sweet..like a candy cane!
He is available for adoption and could be sitting under your tree for Christmas!
All that sweet, calm Rudy wants for Christmas is a forever home! Sadly he has been in shelters and foster care for almost 1.5 years through no fault of his own! He is a turn-key boy who will fit right in to a home and is really calm for a beagle... and not a big barker!
He is a happy 7 year old who resembles the flying nun when you scratch his super soft head. He is a sensitive guy who is easy to redirect if he makes a bad choice. He likes to follow people, dogs, or cats around the house, but if no one is moving he'll chew on a bone or snooze on a soft bed.
When he is excited he makes an unusual sound that resembles a woodpecker and it makes everyone crack up. He is crate trained, housebroken and walks nicely on a leash. He likes calm dogs but isn't a big player. He'd rather follow them around and sniff them – must be the beagle in him. He is ok around kids but would be better without young children whose energy and spontaneity are too much for him. If you need a loyal and faithful companion, take a look at Rudy..he's your boy and his adoption fee is only $75.00 fully vetted.
Thank you Bissell for your generous donation.

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!
