An alternative to standard pet insurance is a CareCredit card. This is not an insurance policy, it is a means of deferring payment without interest for a predetermined amount of time, thereby allowing you to provide the optimal level of care for your pet without worrying about how to afford it.

Although there are over 30 pet insurance companies at the present time, Trupanion Pet Insurance is one company we recommend to our clients. It can be very difficult for “pet parents” to research pet insurance carriers and their variety of coverage options; even more difficult for them to sort through all the complex information about pricing, exclusions and coverage plans.
CHA Animal Shelter is a 501C(3) nonprofit animal shelter in northeast Columbus, Ohio. CHA is funded solely by donations from adoption fees, donations from the public and our own fundraising efforts.
Our mission is to serve the people and animals of Central Ohio by providing safe, temporary shelter and care for abandoned or otherwise homeless cats and dogs, and to reduce pet overpopulation by means of spay and neuter, education and community outreach, and we have been doing so since 1975.
Columbus Dog Connection is a 501c3, limited admission dog and cat rescue organization, formed in 1998. We are a network of dog enthusiasts who rescue all breeds of dogs and cats. Our pooches are rescued from abandonment/abuse situations and we assist animal control/humane societies by taking dogs scheduled for euthanasia. Every dog that leaves our care is spayed/neutered, including 8 week old pups. We believe that allowing a pup to leave our care not spayed/neutered would perpetuate the problem we work so hard to overcome every day.
Our mission: To rescue abandoned dogs, promote all rescues & shelters in Ohio and be in dogged pursuit of saving every adoptable dog until dogs/cats are no longer euthanized for lack of space.
For more than 127 years, the Capital Area Humane Society has been sheltering homeless animals, fighting animal cruelty and neglect, and offering programs to address the needs of animals in our community.

The Capital Area Humane Society relies on the support of private donors and volunteers to make our work possible.

Our website is updated daily so check back often. Our new location is located on Tamarack Boulevard (behind Menards) off of Morse Road.
The Cat Welfare Association was founded in 1945 by a small group of people who saw the need for an organization designed specifically to help the many stray and abused cats in the Columbus area.
