Stop the Suffering (STS) is a Columbus, OH based nonprofit that exists to rescue and transport dogs and cats from high-kill rural shelters in southern Ohio, northern Kentucky and West Virginia to rescues where they can be adopted. STS began in 2002 primarily as a transport organization. Now, we operate many animal rescue programs including a foster and adoption, and sponsorship PROGRAM. We have a huge heart for senior pups too! Stop by the lawn in front of COhatch, The Library (NE Village Green) to meet some adoptable dogs!

Thank you to COhatch for their continued support of The Old Worthington Partnership.




Each month on the first Wednesday from 5:00-8:00 p.m.

On the first Wednesday of each month Worthington will be alive with activity. Shops will stay open late, and there will be live entertainment on Dewey’s plaza. Local lifestyle and coworking company, COhatch, will sponsor and participate in the series.

COhatch will organize a different monthly service opportunity for the community. Each month brings a new theme and a new community involvement opportunity. Activities will take place either at one of COhatch’s two Worthington locations or in its mobile workplace trailer, Mobi.

The merchants in Old Worthington will program their own specials during these monthly events, and each 1st Wednesday will be designated a DORA event. Alcoholic beverages that are available to be purchased in to-go cups at one of the seven establishments in the district so guests can explore the shops and activities.
