CINCINNATI, OH – January 19, 2017 – Pets In Need of Greater Cincinnati received a renewal grant of $26,000 from the Kenneth A. Scott Charitable Trust to support its mission of providing affordable, high-quality veterinary care to low-income families.
As the only resource of its kind in Greater Cincinnati, Pets In Need provides a positive alternative to surrendering pets to a shelter. Its vision aligns with the mission of the Kenneth A. Scott Charitable Trust, which is to extend in perpetuity the generosity toward animals in need shown by Kenneth Allen Scott during his lifetime, and to assist those who care for them today.

In 2012 the program became a stand-alone nonprofit, Pets In Need of Greater Cincinnati, Inc. With the ongoing support of the Trust, Pets In Need has expanded its capacity and currently serves pets in more than 1,800 local low-income families.
