New Kids on the Block—September Business

New Name, Same Mission

The Toledo Animal Shelter is getting a new name and a new look. Toledo’s oldest no-kill animal shelter is now known as Toledo Animal Rescue. The non-profit says the rebrand, which includes the new name, logo, tagline and re-energized spirit, allows the organization to communicate its mission to a wide and varied audience with a new messaging strategy, digital platform, strong corporate partnerships and strategic community outreach. Still, Toledo Animal Rescue’s main focus will continue to be the wellbeing of animals.

New Radio Station in the 419

Toledo area residents can tune into a new radio station—Nuestra Gente 96.5FM, the first 24/7 Spanish FM radio in the area. The station was launched by Linda Parra, founder of Nuestra Gente Community Projects, Inc., a nonprofit in the local Hispanic/Latino community.
