Mission Statement:
Ohio Alleycat Resource & Spay/Neuter Clinic is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Our mission is to enrich the lives of cats and communities in Greater Cincinnati by providing low-cost, high-quality spay/neuter services for ferals, strays and pets; offering TNR (trap-neuter-return) and other outreach programs; and running a no-kill adoption center dedicated to finding loving homes.

OAR helps cats and communities. Twenty-five years ago, O’Bryonville Animal Rescue started to help people spay and neuter feral cats and find permanent indoor homes for friendly community cats.

Now, OAR stands for Ohio Alleycat Resource and Spay/Neuter Clinic. Its home has changed to Madisonville, and its mission has greatly expanded. 

Ohio Alleycat Resource & Spay / Neuter Clinic

OAR’s low cost, high volume Spay/Neuter Clinic is based on the Humane Alliance model and its licensed veterinarians sterilized 11,515 cats in 2022 alone. It also serves the community by providing a regular low-cost vaccine clinic to the public.

The Adoption Center

The Joanie Bernard Home for Cats is OAR’s adoption center. Dedicated staff and volunteers work to match cats and kittens with their people. In 2022, OAR adopted out 1,519 cats.

The adoption center does not take cats from the public, but instead pulls animals at risk of euthanasia from other shelters. 

However, once an OAR cat, always an OAR cat. In other words, if anything at all happens that prevents adopters from keeping the cats or kittens they adopted from OAR, those cats are always welcomed back.

Cat people are everywhere. So are cats. Our goal at Ohio Alleycat Resource is to make life happier, healthier, and more fulfilled for cats and their people.
