Our Mission

Through donations received from members and the public, Animal Care & Welfare, Inc. offers assistance for low cost spays and neuters. We also operate our pet placement program by collaborating with shelters and carefully selecting homeless pets and placing them in loving homes.

Animal Care & Welfare, Inc., founded by Ed and Kay Blotzer, incorporated since 1970, was created for the purpose of preventing cruelty to animals. AC&W is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization supported soley by donations. The all-volunteer Board of Directors appreciates your support. Sue Krul-President; Bonnie Evans Magdalene-Treasurer; Barb Kagarise-Secretary.

Adoption Policy

Adoption inquiries are through email only. We will reply to you with a few questions and send you an application email. If your application is approved, our meet and greets are by appointment at the Robinson Petco, Steubenville Pike. We will call you to set up a time that works for everyone.

If you rent, we will need written verification that you are allowed to have a pet.

All cats and dogs adopted through AC&W are temperament tested, spayed/neutered, microchipped, tested for Leuk/Aids (cats), tested for HWT (dogs), vaccinated, wormed, groomed and flea/tick treatment applied.
