21 Adoptable Cincinnati Pets Who Would Love to Be Your Quarantine Buddy

While it may not be the first thing on your mind in these uncertain times, pets are still looking for their forever homes. According to a post by Cincinnati adoption agency Louie's Legacy, “It’s not only safe to keep pets in the home, but also beneficial, as they can serve as a source of comfort during a crisis. The companionship of pets has been shown to reduce stress and lower anxiety, helping people to feel calmer and more secure when the news from the outside world is distressing.” While Louie’s Legacy has canceled special adoption events coming up, they're still conducting pet adoptions and seeking foster homes. From their website: "We are fully operational remotely, and our commitment to animal welfare remains the same. Adoptions will be conducted under modified circumstances during this time, so please continue to apply to foster and adopt pets, as the need for animal rescue is always present." Louie's Legacy, as well as plenty of other pet rescues, have many adoptable furbabies of all ages and breeds that are in need of families to love. All of the pets on this particular slideshow are from Louie's Legacy. If you're interested in adopting, reach out to the rescue. Please note that some dogs may have pending adoptions. Whether or not you're in a place to adopt, we hope these adorable faces bring you some joy.

Rey
Age: 3 years old  / Breed: Labrador Retriever / Sex: Female / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
"Meet sweet baby Rey! She has the best puppy dog eyes! Rey is a 3 yr old lab mix, weighing 50 lbs. This perfect medium sized dog is both housebroken and crate trained. She loves to go on walks and would probably even enjoy a good run! She is working on her leash training but she has already gotten so much better in such a short time. Rey lives in a foster home with 2 other medium sized dogs and 2 cats. She does great with them all! They love running around in the backyard together. (Not the cats ha). She is a little shy with some people at first but with a little time and trust she'll do great."

"Mailbox is a handsome 10 month old, 40 pound, Cattle Dog/Boxer mix.

His happy tail lets you know how he is feeling. He is very intelligent and wants to please his person: he was taught how to sit in about 2 minutes. He is a gentleman when given treats and toys. He enjoys sticking his head out of the car window and watching the world go by."

"Hello there! My name is Freddie and I am a 1.5 year old 50 pound pitbull mix! I am house and crate trained, and I am great with people and dogs! I am fostered with a 60 pound female and a 50 pound male, and we all get along great! When I’m not playing with them, you can either find me cuddling with my foster mom or taking a nap! I am nothing but a big baby! All I want to do is cuddle up next to you, have you pet me, or give you all kinds of kisses. Sometimes I don’t know my own strength so you just need to make sure you let me know when I’m doing something you don’t like. I’m a very quick learner! I can’t wait to find my forever home!"

Jasmine
Age: Adult / Breed: Domestic Short Hair / Sex: Female / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
"Jasmine was a wonderful mother to her 6 kittens, all of whom have now been adopted and it’s time for this momma cat to find her forever home. She’s a bit of an independent lady. She likes to be near her humans, but she's not overly affectionate. She is quite regal in her demeanor and sees herself as the queen of the household. She tolerates other cats and dogs well. She’s fully litter box trained and has a wonderful appetite. She occasionally will jump on the bed and allow her humans to pet her a few times and she’s gotten a bit more loving with time and patience. She has not been around small children and she would do better with older family members. She loves to play when she’s in the mood and her favorite toys are laser lights and anything on a string. She’s quite skilled at sleeping and climbing her cat tower. Jasmine has what we lovingly refer to as (resting grumpy cat face)."
