We love people with a passion for animals and skills that can help us be successful.  We need loving foster homes. There is no experience more rewarding than fostering a homeless rescued animal.   We need help with weekend events.  We need help with weekly transports.  Become a volunteer, foster, or driver


We have lots of opportunities to donate.  Whether you like to shop, prefer to give gift cards, or like to set up a monthly donation and forget about it, we've got something for you.

Our Generous Sponsors

Stop the Suffering rescues and transports dogs and cats from high-kill shelters, located primarily in Ohio and some West Virginia and Kentucky, to pre-approved rescues in five states where they can be evaluated and matched with new families. 
We raise funds for critical and routine veterinary care, vaccinations, transportation and food for rescue animals in both foster care and rural shelters.  Learn how we do it

Rescuing by the Numbers 

With the support of our donors, community, and volunteers, we were able to transport 3,102 rural pets to rescues, sponsor 271 pets, sponsor 145 pets for vetting, fees, and health certificates, and so much more in 2017. See all our numbers
