Donate your car in Ohio

As an Ohio resident, you can donate your unwanted vehicle to benefit a nonprofit of your choice. You can designate the proceeds of your donation to benefit a local charity such as the American Council of the Blind or Mercy for Animals. Or you can choose from hundreds of nationwide charitable organizations. The Vehicle Donation Processing Center will handle the paperwork and arrange for free pick up of your donated vehicle. The VDPC helps you clear out your driveway and make a charitable contribution at the same time!

The VDPC will pick up your vehicle for you anywhere in Ohio, the Buckeye State, and home to more U.S. presidents than any other state. We can collect your vehicle donation whether you live in Dayton, where the Wright Brothers changed history, or the recreation paradise surrounding Lake Erie. Contact us today to start the process. Call the toll-free number to speak with a live operator, or fill out the online donation form.

The Vehicle Donation Processing Center makes charitable contributions via vehicle donations easy, and you get a tax deduction as well. Act now to make a positive change!

Mercy For Animals

Mercy for Animals works to create a society where all animals are treated with the compassion and respect they so rightfully deserve.
They serve as a voice for animals through proactive consumer education initiatives, cruelty investigations, corporate outreach, and legal advocacy.

Neighborhood Cat Helpers

The Neighborhood Cat Helpers, a 501(c)3 organization, are committed to assisting and advocating the humane reduction of free-roaming feral and stray cats in Hamilton County using trap-neuter-return (TNR). They also assist with finding homes for captured, free-roaming, adoptable cats and kittens when feasible. When possible, they also assist low-income families in
Cincinnati neighborhoods with the sterilization of their pet cats or kittens. They are not a shelter, but a small network of foster homes, so they are unable to take in stray cats. However, they are happy to provide the general public with tips on finding homes and information regarding low cost spay/neuter options.
