Mack Daddy
Age: 4 Years Old / Breed: English Bulldog Mix / Sex: Male / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue
“Mack Daddy is the most handsome English Bulldog in town! This squishy faced dude is on the search for his very own forever home. At almost 4 years old, he's a tiny tank weighing in at 55-60 pounds. Mack loves every dog he's ever met and while he likes to play, his smushy face needs frequent breaks. He prefers to eat his meals and chew on his bones in his own space. Mack has both face and tail folds that need to be cleaned daily in order to keep from getting infected. He also loves the kittens in his foster home and would do well in a home with cats. Mack would do best with children aged 10+. He enjoys going for short walks around the neighborhood and snuggling with his foster mom. If you're looking for a nearly perfect boy, then look no further! Mack Daddy cannot wait to find his forever home. Apply online today! My adoption fee is $250.”

Rounder
Age: Adult / Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound Mix / Sex: Male / Rescue: Save the Animals Foundation
“Rounder is a super sweet southern gentleman, around five years old with a big ol' bay ... music to a hound-lover's ears! He was picked up as a stray. Thank goodness, because this guy loves the company of people and can't get enough affection. (Especially if it involves having his ears rubbed!) He weighs in just over 50 pounds, at least half of it pure heart. Walks nicely on leash, a good listener, friendly with other dogs ... an all-around great guy!”

Eggroll
Age: Kitten / Breed: Domestic Short Hair/ Sex: Male / Rescue: Save the Animals Foundation
“What is better than a warm Eggroll on a cold day? This Eggroll is a cute white kitten with brown tabby spots and a pink nose. He is rather shy and still adjusting to people, but our little Chinese appetizer is a total sweetheart who is warming up to being held and pet. In the busy home in which he was lovingly fostered, Eggroll became fast friends with other cats but was a little unsure about dogs. Eggroll has come a long way from the terrifying situation from which he came. A cat colony in Hebron, Kentucky, was mushrooming out of control. Thankfully, a family came to the cats’ rescue and brought them to safety. The STAF grocery is now home to a whole section of International Foods, including kittens Habanero, Tabasco, Olive, Wonton and his brother Eggroll. If you love Chinese food, you’ll adore our delightful Eggroll!"

Georgia O’Keeffe
Age: Adult  / Breed: Domestic Short Hair / Sex: Female / Rescue: Save the Animals Foundation
“Found with a broken leg behind a dumpster near the Cincinnati Art Museum in Eden Park, a volunteer gave this little cat a suitably artistic name. Her distinctive markings are a word of art: Georgia O. has white slashes going crosswise on her rounded face and her tail is striped. Miss O’Keeffe was once quite shy and still likes quiet talk and a gentle touch. Stroking of her chin and along her back elicits a warm response from this kitty, who would love to go to a serene home.”

“If you have the luck of the Irish, you will be fortunate enough to make Finnegan’s acquaintance! They don’t come friendlier than our man Finnegan, who shows us each and everyday how grateful he is to be warm, well fed and doted on. He is a big, even-tempered, huggable guy who would think there’s nothing better than a night curled up with you in front of the TV. Pick him up and hold him and you’ll be graced with a big purr. This handsome tabby with cute white toes is also starting to show us more a playful side.”
