What We Do


About Us

The mission of Pets In Need is to provide affordable, high-quality veterinary care to allow individuals and families of limited means to enjoy the benefits of healthy and responsible pet ownership. 

Founded as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2012, Pets In Need is the only permanent veterinary resource of its kind in the Greater Cincinnati area. We are committed to keeping pets healthy and together with the families who love them. The very low-cost services that our clinic provides are often the difference between a pet staying in a loving home or being surrendered to a shelter. 

Who We Serve

We believe that regardless of financial status, everyone deserves to have the joy of a pet.

Located in Lockland, our clinic serves pet families whose total household income is at or below 150% of the federal poverty level.  There are no geographic restrictions and pet owners come from the entire Tristate area encompassing 15 counties and 127 zip codes.
