Stop the Suffering (STS) is a Columbus, Ohio based nonprofit that rescues dogs and cats from high kill shelters, primarily in Ohio, and to transport them to safety. We operate a dog adoption program and match dogs to their forever home. We also raise funds for veterinary care, transportation and food for rescued animals. Stop the Suffering provides resources to promote responsible pet ownership.
Save a life. By fostering a dog, you help them on their journey to their forever home.
We work with high kill shelters to help get as many dogs and cats out of a shelter and into rescue.
“A world where no adoptable shelter pets in Ohio are euthanized; a world where these pets have a good outcome.”
