Capital Area Humane Society is now Columbus Humane

From Rachel Finney, Executive Director

We think our new name goes great with our 134 year-old commitment to advancing animal welfare. 

Maybe you’re wondering why we would make such a change.  The short answer: we can reach more people and save more lives.  Really, everything we do comes down to that. 

Want to know more?  Here’s the longer answer:  Our innovative programming really put us on the map nationally and we need a name that can do the same.  Not only are there 51 “capital areas” in our Country, there’s actually a Capital Area Humane Society in Michigan, too.  We provide critical, life-saving care for animals and we are a lead law enforcement agency investigating animal cruelty, abuse and neglect— so confusion about who we are, where we are and what we do can actually put lives in danger. 

As we considered options for the name that would take us into our future, we really loved the idea of reflecting on our rich history.  We were founded as the Humane Society of the City of Columbus way back in 1883 and we are proud of all that we’ve accomplished to make our community more humane for both animals and people.  Columbus Humane.  It feels right.

What’s changed?  We have a new name and a new logo, but we’ve still got the same steadfast determination and mission to fight animal cruelty, help animals in need and advocate for their wellbeing.  We focus our core values of Expertise, Innovation, Collaboration and Endurance to ensure that every animal and person we serve gets the very best care possible.  That means outstanding veterinary care to treat and heal sick animals, protection for victims of abuse and cruelty, extensive transfer partnerships to help animals at-risk in shelters in Southern Ohio, and the seriously fun stuff like adoptions.

The best part is that YOU can help!  Click here to spread the word, here to learn about exciting volunteer and employment opportunities, or here if you’d like to make a gift.  More than 92% of our funding comes from donations and fees for service like adoption, so your help really makes an impact.

#WeMakeColumbusHumane and you can, too.
