Partner Profile: Clark County SPCA

The Clark County SPCA is our latest featured partner. This organization is moving boldly toward their vision of a community free from animal cruelty and pet overpopulation as well as providing educational opportunities for the next generation.

Mission: The SPCA educates Clark County citizens, protects homeless pets from cruelty, and reduces the number of unwanted pets through sterilization and rehoming.

Education: The SPCA visits Clark County schools with “Cami,” (at left) who helps to teach children about dog safety, responsible dog ownership, and animal cruelty. The SPCA partners with Dogtors Animal Assisted Therapy Teams for the “Paws for Reading” program at Enon Elementary School to help children with their reading.  The SPCA also offers classes to educate the public about animal care and animal cruelty. Join the SPCA at their Animal Cruelty Investigation and Training Workshop led by Attorney J. Jeffery Holland on 12/06/2019 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Security National Bank, 3rd floor, 40 S. Limestone, Springfield OH. Pre-registration required; email Krissi Hawke (info below) not later than midnight 12/03/2019.

Partnerships: The SPCA does an extraordinary job of collaborating with multiple Clark County organizations to serve Clark County citizens and animals. They house stray dogs for the Dog Warden; they work with the Clark County Dog Shelter to find homes for unwanted animals; and they partner with the Clark County Combined Health District, Clark County Sheriff, code enforcement, and Clark County Mental Health Department on the Hoarding Task Force.

Rehoming of Dogs: The SPCA works diligently to find forever homes for all unwanted, abused, and neglected dogs and cats in the county. All pets receive vaccinations, deworming treatment, and microchips, and they are spayed or neutered.
