SPCA Cincinnati Ends Dog Warden Duties on July 31

In July 2019, after many decades of service to the community through the Hamilton County Dog Warden Contract, The SPCA Cincinnati’s Board of Trustees voted and approved a resolution to end the partnership with Hamilton County for the duties of and associated with the Hamilton County Dog Warden Contract. After several contract extensions requested by Hamilton County, the final date has been determined as July 31, 2020.

Jake White, President & CEO of the SPCA Cincinnati stated, “We are excited to offer an exit strategy focused on a smooth transition so no stray dog is at additional risk or peril during the transition. Moving forward, the SPCA Cincinnati is fully embracing our ability to offer new educational programs, community impact projects and pet-human therapies to benefit the Greater Cincinnati region.”

As in past, during and after the transition, the SPCA Cincinnati will remain a Humane Society Agency with the ability to offer owner-relinquished adoptions, Humane Agent services, and problem-solving authorized under the Ohio Revised Code.

The SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) Cincinnati, founded in 1873, is an animal shelter and humane society that strives to strengthen the human-animal bond and improve the welfare of animals by fostering the humane care and treatment of all animals. SPCA Cincinnati improves the quality of life in the community in which we live, work, and play through humane education and animal protection based on the philosophy that how a community treats its animals is a reflection of how its members treat each other.
