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
