25 Adoptable Dogs You Could Take Home Today From Cincinnati Animal CARE for Just $25

Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society, which recently took over Hamilton County's Northside shelter (formerly operated by the SPCA), is offering $25 dog adoptions until 6 p.m. on April 15 due to an influx of canine take-ins. Media and community relations manager Ray Anderson says the shelter welcomed 35 dogs over the course of 24 hours, so they are lowering their typical adoption fee of $75 to $25 in hopes of helping them find their homes. "To put that in perspective, we consider 10 dogs coming in to be a bad day; this is more than a third of our capacity in a single day. In order to maintain our strict one dog per kennel policy, we need adoptions and fosters today," a Facebook post from the shelter reads. "Every county in Ohio has one county shelter and if you live in Cincinnati/Hamilton County, Cincinnati Animal CARE is your shelter," Anderson told CityBeat. "Every stray dog in the city comes through our doors and we can make them as comfortable as possible, but these are companion animals who belong in a home. We've made numerous upgrades to the old Northside facility, our dogs have more space with our one dog per kennel policy and our expanded play yards, but at the end of the day, they need to go home. If you can't adopt, please consider fostering!" The temporarily discounted $25 adoption fee is only applicable to dogs ages six months and older, and appointments aren't necessary.
