How Can You Help?

Cincinnati Shelter Dogs

As a non-profit 501(c)(3) group we are unpaid volunteers

who work from our homes and are always in need of assistance.

  • Socialization work with the dogs (go to a Cincinnati dog shelter and spend time playing with and or walking some of the long timers being sponsored by Sheltered Paws)

  • Transport (picking up/dropping off dogs going from the shelter to vet visits, to new foster homes and to grooming appointments, usually a couple of hours during the week or weekend)

  • Paperwork (especially helping with our newsletters)

  • Computer work (assistance with email correspondence, our social media accounts, and our website)

  • Event assistance (put together new events, obtain raffle and door prizes, set up for the event, talk with attendees, distribute literature and help show foster dogs)

  • Communication (making and distributing flyers of shelter and foster dogs currently looking for their forever home, spreading the word about Sheltered Paws and our work)

  • Collecting donated items (heartworm medicine and flea medicine, especially, as well as crates, toys food, and other medicine)

  • Legal (assistance with taxes and legal advice on adhering to state / federal guidelines regarding 501(c)(3) status)

  • Grant writing (searching for available grants and assisted funding on the internet and through special interest groups and completing these applications/grants)

  • Be an advocate (spread the word about Sheltered Paws and our work, but also for dog adoption and spaying/neutering, too)
