Rescue Listings for Ohio (below) Updated July 21, 2021 Send corrections to: KDifrischia@gmail.com
Do not buy from a Rescue Broker, while not illegal, they are highly unethical
Rescue Brokers buy from breeders to resell for a high "adoption" fee. Puppy mills will continue to thrive as long as anyone is buying from them. Reputable rescues do not pay breeders for dogs to rehome as rescued dogs/pups. Reputable rescues have a 100% spay/neuter before adoption policy. PetFinder.com & Adopt A Pet also list homeless dogs but do minimal screening for "Rescue Brokers".

Examples of Rescue Brokers in Ohio
Remember, what they do is not illegal, but they are making a profit off using the term "rescue" and some may be using the term to avoid paying taxes.
