Welcome to the Ohio Animal Welfare Federation

The Ohio Animal Welfare Federation (Ohio Fed) is a 501(c)3 non-profit membership organization for humane societies, dog wardens, animal control officers, and non-profit animal welfare organizations across Ohio. 


To promote the well-being and humane treatment of domestic animals throughout Ohio through education, advocacy, and professional resources for animal welfare professionals, elected officials and law enforcement.  


We envision a future where all animal welfare professionals, elected officials and law enforcement from across Ohio have the resources, education and support they need to ensure the well-being and humane treatment of domestic animals in their communities.

  • Discounted registration fees for regional, live educational opportunities around Ohio 
  • Discounted registration fees for live webinars and access to a recorded webinar library
