Bonita is an absolute sweetie. She is about 1 year old. She is a Pocket Pitty (small, adorable Pit Bull Terrier). Bonita came to Peace for Paws Ohio after being rescued from a kill shelter. She was emaciated and extremely sick. She is now healthy and happy! She loves attention, anything from cuddling to playing tug of war. To learn more about Bonita: Click Here.
How To Meet Our PetsPeace For Paws is an organization that coordinates a network of foster homes where rescued pets live until adopted. We do not operate an animal shelter. If you are interested in meeting one of our rescued pets, please fill out an adoption application. If your application is approved, the foster family for the pet you are interested in will contact you to schedule a meeting.
Request Your Dream PetPeace For Paws works with shelters all across the state and some outside of the state. Most of the dogs we take are never viewable for adoption at the shelter we take them from for different reasons. Peace for Paws Ohio is forced to pass on many adoptable dogs due to lack of space. If there is a specific type of dog you are looking for, please submit a breed request form. We will inform the shelters we are working with that we have a spot for a specific type of dog, and help you to meet your perfect match AND save a life!
***You MUST have an approved adoption application with us as well before we will release a dog to you***

Who is Peace For Paws OhioPeace for Paws Ohio is a non-profit, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization to assist with the homeless pet overpopulation in Ohio. Our mission is to provide education and financial support for spay and neuter efforts in rural areas, foster and adopt dogs from high-kill shelters, provide resources to shelters or humane societies who are caring for animals from large-scale rescues, support Ohio legislation for companion animal protection, and provide temporary pet food assistance for families going through financial hardship. This organization is made up of 100% volunteers.
Peace for Paws Ohio was founded August 6, 2011 in Dublin, Ohio, by a group of dedicated animal lovers. Before forming Peace for Paws Ohio, the members individually volunteered at various Ohio shelters and a large-scale hoarding rescue, and were involved in promoting animal protection legislation in Ohio.
Foster For UsFoster parents are the MOST important part of our rescue. Without them, we would have no where to put our rescued pets! We are limited on the number of dogs we can save because we are limited on the number of foster homes we have. Fostering a dog means you give it the love, shelter, and care that it needs until it finds its forever home. Peace For Paws Ohio covers all medical and food expenses while the dog is in our care, and foster parents have a huge say in which forever homes are suitable for their foster-kids. Foster parents also have the first option of adopting their foster kids! We work hard to accommodate you, and being an all breed rescue we will only place dogs in your home that your are comfortable with. Help us save more lives, and foster today!
