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!

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!
A Thank You goes to...
A Huge SHOUT OUT goes to Pat Worcester & Linda Gross! They raised $900.00 dollars for Jane's Angel Fund (a fund for SOS to use for special needs animals). This is the proceeds from their "Crazy Sister" Craft Sale on December 7th in Avon. THANKS LADIES! As Sandy C. would say "YOU ROCK".
Thank you so much Kelly for our wonderful Frost (we call him Jake). He’s lived with us for a month now, Sam our older dog is showing him the joy of the furnace vent on cold mornings among other things. He’s been to the vet for his most recent round of shots and the vet says he’s doing great. He’s almost house trained now. We enjoy Jake so much and we are so appreciative of the amazing work that you and all the dedicated folks at Save Ohio Strays are doing.
Note: Frost was from the litter of Parvo puppies and Frost spent the most time in the hospital - one week. Just look at him now! Thanks for the update.
Material Girls Quilt Guild Does It Again...
The Material Girls Quilt Guild have once again donated beds made by their members. There are 20 beds in this delivery. We are so lucky to have such wonderful donors that donate on a regular bases. So we once again say THANK YOU to the Material Girls Quilt Guild! We so appreciate everything you do and we know the animals do too.
UPDATE: Trapper/Chance went home today with the vet tech from Animal Medical Centre of Medina. She texted me that all is well with her 3 dogs but he is really afraid of her fiance. But they are going to work through it. Chance had a lot of change today. Going into a new place, new smells, lots of dogs, and a foot that is feeling better than it has for a long while. He`s probably on dogie overload. Time is all that is needed. That and lots of sitting on the floor with some really good treats for the fiance.~lisa
Meet Trapper. Named for that after getting part of his foot caught in one. He will be coming to us for recovery and adoption thanks to the quick work of our volunteers!
Look at our boy Riley now! He looks great!!! LOVE seeing our seniors being loved and honored. Sandy C.
The big goofball Riley hanging out. Evelyn
Just wanted to let you know Max is doing well. He is getting lots of love and being spoiled. He likes his sister (golden) Cookie and he wags his tail constantly! We love him! Sheila

This is Willow(Heather), and she has been with us for 7 months from Save Ohio Strays and she is the best kittie ever!!! Thanks!! Kim
This is Maizy! We adopted her from Save Ohio Strays in October of 2008 when she was 8 weeks old. She is a is such a wonderful dog!! She is great with our 2 kids and is very affectionate! She sleeps with us every night! I couldn't be happier or asked for a better dog. We don't know what we would do without her!! She has a jack Russell as a play mate so she's never lonely!! Thanks for everything you guys do!! Brittany
Check out Peanut in his new home and here is part of a message his adopters sent to us "He is doing great! He is getting the potty training down great and has started going to the back door when he needs to go out. He has learned another trick! He jumps on his hind legs when we tell him to :) and it is adorable!! We have renamed him Ted and he has already gotten used to it. We feel so blessed to have him in our lives. He has also gained 2 ounces! We are so thankful to have him.". It is wonderful hearing from our adopters!
