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 was founded in 1998 in O’Bryonville, a neighborhood on the eastside of Cincinnati, to provide help for the stray and feral cat population in that area. Named “O'Bryonville Animal Rescue,” the organization gained volunteers who were interested in helping cats in other parts of Greater Cincinnati. OAR embraced Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) as a humane means of cat population control and also established a small rescue to promote the adoption of tame cats and kittens from the cat colonies. In 2006, OAR purchased a building at 5619 Orlando Place in Madisonville and began renovations. In 2008, OAR moved operations to our current location. Our low-cost, high-volume clinic for cats, based on the Humane Alliance model, also began operations in 2008 on a limited basis; in late 2009, the clinic started full-time operations. In 2009, we also officially changed our name to “Ohio Alleycat Resource & Spay/Neuter Clinic” to reflect our expanded mission and new location.
