Our mission is to care for and to provide temporary and indefinite shelter for homeless and abandoned dogs and cats by promoting and sponsoring animal welfare education programs, adoptions, preventive veterinary care, and a mandatory spay/neuter program, with emphasis on a "no kill" policy for its animals.
The Rescue operates with a small, but highly dedicated staff, plus a host of loyal volunteers who generously contribute their time, talents, and skills to the Rescue's operation. We are a 501 (c3) nonprofit organization.
The Toledo Animal Rescue (also known as the Toledo Animal Shelter Association) is located on the south side of Toledo, is dedicated to the care and adoption of unwanted and homeless animals since our founding in 1927. Toledo's Oldest No-Kill Shelter.
There are no time limits for animals at our Rescue. Animals remain available for adoption as long as they remain physically and mentally healthy, and of sound temperament.
