Rescue Village is an 501(c)3 animal shelter and humane society in Northeast Ohio. Our mission is to act on behalf of animals and inspire people to build a more humane community. Our vision is for a more humane world where animals are treated with compassion and respect. We work to help thousands of animals find their forever homes every year and to create a more humane world through law enforcement and education. Fundraising for Rescue Village through the Cleveland Marathon means making sure thousands of animals have safe, healthy, and, most importantly, happy endings.
