Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are located in Lancaster, OH and adopt out pets anywhere in Ohio and occasionally neighboring states.

About Our Rescue Group:

Forgotten 4-Paws is a Central Ohio non-profit, volunteer-run organization concerned with the welfare of all animals. Rescuing dogs and cats since 1996, we have helped over 4,000 animals find the happily-ever-after endings they so desperately deserve. We rescue abandoned, neglected and stray dogs and cats and place them with caring foster families (we do not have a shelter) and then adopt them into life-long, loving families.

Come Meet our Pets:

Many of our pets are in foster care, but we do have some cats located at two different PetSmart locations:
one at 3713 Easton Market Columbus, OH 43219 ; the other at 5781 Chantry Dr Columbus, OH 43232 . Some of our foster cats visit the Easton location on Saturdays and Sundays 12:00-4:00pm. If you are interested in any of our pets that are not at PetSmart, please email us to set up a meeting.

Our Adoption Process:

We require all of our pets be adopted out via process of application. You must fill out an online adoption application from our website or in person at one of the already-mentioned PetSmart locations. The process will normally take 3-4 business days. We also charge a fee for all of our pets--cats are $75.00 and dogs $150.00. The adoption fee includes the altering of each animal (certificates will be given for those not old enough at the time of adoption), and vaccinations (all animals will be up-to-date), and any other vet services necessary to ensure you have a healthy pet to add to your family.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
