Lifeline was designed to allow people to have a positive impact on our cats without the commitment of adoption.  All it takes to be a sponsor is a monthly tax-deductible donation of at least $10 a month.  For the duration of your sponsorship, you have the option to receive regular email updates on how your cat is doing and what they've been up to.  You can also sign up someone else as a sponsor as a gift and that person will receive the updates. We encourage all sponsors to visit their cats at the shelter during open hours to get a first hand look at the difference their help makes.

To become a Lifeline sponsor, download the form (Word, PDF) and either mail or bring in person to OAR, 5619 Orlando Place, Cincinnati, OH 45227.  We also encourage you to stop by during shelter open hours to meet long-time residents in need of sponsorship.  If you have questions, call us to 513-871-7297 or email to
