League for Animal Welfare

Our Adoptable Pet List


Who We Are

Our mission is to better the lives of cats and dogs in the Greater Cincinnati area. We provide our animals with loving care and shelter until we match them with their home. We promote responsible pet ownership through public education and spay/neuter programs. We are a privately funded, non-profit, no-kill organization.

Adopting a friend

Adoptions must be completed at our shelter in Batavia, Ohio. We do allow out of state adoptions but the first step in the process, whether you are out of state or local, is coming to the shelter to meet the pet. We do not ship pets or provide transport.

It takes approximately 60 - 90 minutes to complete a dog adoption. Please plan your visit accordingly. Dog adoptions are $95. All of our dogs have been vet-checked, vaccinated, and heartworm tested. Any dog 10 weeks of age or older has been spayed or neutered and this cost is included in the adoption fee. If you adopt a younger puppy, there is an additional $40 deposit which is refunded upon proof of spay/neuter.

It takes approximately 30 - 45 minutes to complete a cat adoption. Please plan your visit accordingly. Cat adoptions are $50. All cats are tested for feline leukemia and feline AIDS and are vet-checked and vaccinated. We spay or neuter all cats at 10 weeks of age. If you select a younger kitten, there is an additional $40 deposit payable at time of adoption, which is refunded upon proof of spay/neuter.

Please call (513) 735-2299 for more information on our available pets or stop by to meet them in person. We have kittens, puppies and adult cats and dogs too! More of our pets can be seen on our website.

In order to continue to provide the necessary food, shelter and veterinary care associated with the animals, it is vital that we continuously obtain new members. Become a member and join us in helping those who cannot help themselves. As a member, you will receive our bi-monthly newsletter which contains information about the shelter, our residents and volunteers and upcoming projects as well as an invitation to our annual picnic and Christmas party.
