25 Adoptable Furry Friends Who Think You Look Great in Sweatpants

Have you been considering adopting a new furry pal? With dog-friendly coffee shops, bakeries, bars and parks, Cincinnati is a great place to be a pet owner. While there are many good boys and girls looking for their forever home, there's a lot to think about when making the decision to bring home a pet. What kind of breed is right for you and your lifestyle? What adoption agencies should you look at? If you're serious about making this life step, adopting a pet is very rewarding — for you and the pet that gets a new home. We've compiled a list of available pets from a few local adoption programs to help you on your mission of finding the pet that's right for you. This is just a small glimpse into each agency's list of adoptable pets. If you are interested in seeing what else they have to offer, visit their websites to learn more. Also, keep in mind that each program has their own application process and some take longer than others. If you'd like to help out the cause but aren't able to adopt right now, you can always donate to one of these rescues or a number of other local pet adoption organizations. *Some pets in the slideshow may have pending adoptions. Please contact the rescues for more info. **All caption information taken from pet listing.

Bobby
Age: 2 Years / Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Sex: Male / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue
”Introducing Bobby. He is a 2 year old Blue Heeler mix who weighs around 40 lbs. Bobby loves car rides, zoomies in the backyard and snuggle time. Bobby knows commands such as sit, stay and is potty trained. This sweet boy is great on a leash and loves to go for neighborhood walks. He does good in a crate but doesn’t willingly go in, a little treat bribing always works! Bobby loves to play with his two foster sisters, 15 pound schnauzer mix and 110 pound Newfoundland. Due to his herding breed he can be nippy during play, be he is easily redirected. He would probably prosper best in a home with older kids. Bobby has been diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease. This means as he ages the signs and symptoms of lyme may show up and need treatment, but may never have signs or symptoms.”

Sawyer
Age: 4 Months / Breed: Domestic Short Hair / Sex: Male / Rescue: Save the Animals Foundation
“In a word: Perfect! This big handsome boy is affectionate, sweet, playful, and chill. Sawyer greets you with chirpy little meows when you come in the room and will purr and flop over the minute you start petting him. He likes his belly and back rubbed--he'll roll over and over while you do it. He is the easy going one of his litter, never too feisty or crazy. He loves chasing balls and his favorite game is chasing food pellets across the floor. He also loves the circular tower toy with a ball in the track. When he is not running about with his siblings, he is more affectionate and is likely snuggle up with you on the bed or couch. As he does like wrestling with his sisters, Delilah and Jemma, he would do well with a playmate. This gray tabby and white boy loves looking out the window at birds and chirping. He enjoys the company of other cats and would be a good fit with kids.”

Pumpkin Pie
Age: 3 Years / Breed: Domestic Short Hair / Sex: Female / Rescue: Stray Animal Adoption Program
“Do you have a window sill that you can share with a beautiful calico cat? Pumpkin Pie is a sweet kitty who shares her happiness by purring loudly. She likes to lounge on a high perch (get the back of the couch ready for her!), will lay beside you looking for a belly rub, and is also a playful kitty. She's happy to chase a laser pointer or bat around a toy, but she is not a kitty that is likely to be in your face, begging for attention. At three years old, Pumpkin Pie gives you the best of all worlds: she's put her youth behind her and still has a long life of adulthood in front of her. She's got good looks for days and will make someone a lovely family kitty. Pumpkin Pie weighs around 8 pounds and does not seem prone to weight gain or overeating--she has been free feeding in her foster home. Pumpkin Pie is great with children and is not bothered by loud sounds or quick movements. She is a quiet cat that is rarely vocal. Pumpkin Pie is good with other cats, and has not been fostered with dogs, although best guesses indicate that Pumpkin Pie is an agreeable kitty who could acclimate to many different living environments. Pumpkin Pie came to SAAP as a mama of nine kittens. She was a dutiful and loving mama to her large litter, and her kittens have moved on to their forever homes. It's Pumpkin Pie's turn now.”

“Rusty is a 3 year old chihuahua mix. He weighs 13 lbs and loves to go on walks. He's a snuggler who loves being on the couch under a blanket. He is being fostered with 2 dogs bigger than him and he has some jealousy issues. These issues can be managed with boundaries and patience. He's a very sweet dog. He's crate trained and potty trained with occasional accidents. Rusty would love a home where he gets lots of attention and exercise, and doesn't have kids.

Pack Mule

“Welcome back Pack Mule. Pack Mule (knows Tucker) is a 1yo boxer/terrier mix being returned for being too rough with the older dogs in the house. He is typically good with dogs, but is a rough player, high energy, and a bit full of himself (dominant). He could use structure, boundaries, and a way to get all his energies out.

Possum
Age: Kitten / Breed: Domestic Short Hair / Sex: Male / Rescue: Purrfect Friends
“Possum & his siblings were originally found down in a sewer, unable to get out! They were rescued by lowering a squirrel trap down into the opening until each kitten was saved! Mom cat was also trapped & spayed too. Possum & his sister Cardi ended up with Purrfect Friends. They are both sweet babies & are thankfully none the worse off from having a rough uncertain start. Cardi & Opossum are healthy, both are always purring & they love each other. We would love to keep them together if possible. Possum is a laid back boy & is very affectionate.”

Reno
Age: 8 Months / Breed: Domestic Short Hair/ Sex: Female / Rescue: Save the Animals Foundation
“Reno has beaten the odds! She is one a litter with three orange females, a very special occurrence. Her “sunshine city” sisters are Vegas and Miami; she also has a little brother, Orlando. A beautiful striped tabby, the shy Reno is still learning to trust us and requires a very peaceful home with someone dedicated to helping build her confidence. She is a gentle soul who likes toys but is still inclined to hang back and watch the action. We bet that you will fall in love with this timid little girl, rescued with her litter-mates from a treacherous road. Will you take a gamble on Reno today?”

Carly
Age: Senior / Breed: Saint Bernard / Sex: Female / Rescue: Adoption First Animal Rescue
“Carly is a big girl weighing over 120, and is a Saint Bernard. She lived in a basement all her life, and came to the shelter extremely matted. Once the shelter was able to clip her fur, there was SIXTEEN pounds of matted fur. She is the sweetest soul, who loves everyone. She is great with other dogs, but will do best with larger breed dogs. She loves to run on the farm, and even likes to swim. She is potty trained, and roams the house. She prefers a nice comfy bed next to your bed to sleep in at night.”
