Cincinnati Animal CARE

Who We Are

Cincinnati Animal CARE operates Hamilton County’s one and only animal shelter and is responsible for the county’s dog warden and animal control services. As the sole taxpayer-funded provider of these services, we are committed to ensuring that all animals in our community are valued, protected and have a safe place to call home.

We meet the immediate needs of animals that come to us through highly individualized care, life-saving solutions and temporary housing—either in the shelter itself, or in foster homes throughout the community—as we work to find safe and compatible homes for all.

Known also as “Cincy CARE,” we assumed responsibility for Hamilton County animal services in August 2020, becoming the state’s first open-admission municipal shelter committed to the humane no-kill philosophy, which means only euthanizing an animal when there is no other option for a live outcome.
