25 Adoptable Dogs From Cincinnati Animal CARE Looking for Families to Love

National Dog Day is Thursday, Aug. 26. Looking to add a furry new addition to your family in honor of the holiday? Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society, which recently took over Hamilton County's Northside shelter, is bursting at the seams with adoptable dogs who would love to share your home (and lap) with you. The local animal welfare group recently took in 46 dogs from a Texas shelter that was about to have to start euthanizing animals for space. And those Texas puppies and small dogs will be joined by Cincinnati Animal CARE's additional 200+ adoptable dogs and cats at a "Puppypalooza" adoption event at Cincinnati Animal CARE's shelter in Northside this Saturday, Aug. 28 from noon-6 p.m. All dogs who are over 6 months old and 30 pounds will cost $20, plus a Hamilton County licensing fee. Reduced dog adoption fees will be valid from noon Aug. 27 through 6 p.m. Aug. 29. Cincinnati Animal CARE says this weekend will also be the first time they are opening the shelter's kennels for walkthroughs. Read more about Puppypalooza here.  Here's a glimpse of some of the dogs available at the Cincinnati shelter.

Ford Ranger

”We know Ford Ranger's first photo looks like he has had one too many pup-wines, but honestly we think he perfectly captures his goofy personality. He's a very good boy and he loves to follow his nose and is keen to walk and explore. Ford also responds eagerly if invited to play and his energy is moderately high yet he is very responsive to verbal cues and and is extremely alert to his surroundings! If he had a report card, it would say "ford ranger is a pleasure to have in class, A+" He is very smart and for a 3 year old, he is extremely mature- he will definitely never eat your homework, sorry kids! Come meet this amazing boy today and see why Ford Ranger is so loved by everyone he meets!”

Sundance
Age: Adult / Breed: Terrier Mix / Sex: Female
"Sundance, aka Sunny. We call her Sunny, easier than Sundance, but both names fit this pup.
We have been fostering Sunny for the past 4+ months. When we first got her, she was definitely reserved and didn't know what was going on or how to react. She didn't know how to play, it was really sad. We had a number of toys for her and she didn't react to any of them. It took her about 2 weeks to feel at home and then she started playing! Ever since then, she has been playing and enjoying her foster home.”
