Education

Please explore the sections on the menu to the right to help resolve your pet's issues.

About one-quarter of all phone calls to the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) are about human medications. Your pet can easily ingest dropped pills or may be given harmful human medications by an unknowing owner, resulting in illness, or even death, of your pet.

If you’re concerned about something your pet may have digested, please click here for more information about the ASPCA Poison Control Hotline.

Please note: If you are experiencing a behavior issue with your pet, please visit with your veterinarian about the problem right away. Sudden changes in behavior are often caused by underlying medical issues. In many cases a trip to the veterinarian can save you time and frustration, and help prevent potential harm to your pet(s) and loved ones.

We want to spread our mission!

Part of spca cincinnati’s goal is spreading the word. The more our community is educated, the more soldiers we have to fight for our furry friends. To do this, we offer group classes explaining our services and how you can help.

Staff and volunteers visit area schools and organizations to talk about responsible animal care and safety around animals, to promote spaying/neutering, raise awareness of the positive benefits of animal companionship and promote the keeping of companion animals as a lifetime commitment. Videos, question/answer sessions and animal interaction make the classes fun and interactive for all ages. We’ll even bring in featured pets to play with!

If you would like a humane education visit, contact Lee Ann Luxenberger, Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@spcacincinnati.org or call (513) 541-6100, ext. 2036
