We chose to be Close to Home Animal Rescue (CtHAR) because we are committed to helping and saving the lives of animals in our own neighborhoods, as well as knowing our rescued animals are close to finding their forever homes.
Close to Home Animal Rescue was established in December 2009 from the unified vision of volunteers who made it their mission to RESCUE, REHAB, and REHOME dogs in need. All of our volunteers give their time and effort in order to save the lives of animals that have been abused, homeless, or have survived being bred-for-profit in Ohio’s puppy mills.
Close to Home Animal Rescue is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit, all volunteer animal welfare organization. Our rescued animals are placed in volunteer foster homes where they are assessed, socialized, cared for, and loved until they are adopted into the best possible forever home for that particular animal.
