Nearly 50 puppies and small dogs from Texas will be available for adoption at this Saturday’s Puppypalooza at the Cincinnati Animal CARE shelter in Northside. Puppypalooza takes place on August 28 from noon to 6 p.m.
The local animal welfare group took in 46 dogs after the Texas shelter was about to begin euthanizing the animals for space.
The dogs were placed in medical isolation for three weeks to ensure they were all healthy and ready for adoption.
“It’s been a busy summer at Cincinnati Animal CARE,” said Jessica Grimes, the association’s results manager. “The story of these Texas dogs has touched many hearts and we are delighted that Cincinnati is coming to meet them and the many other amazing adoptable dogs here at the shelter.”
During Puppypalooza, potential adopters can come visit Texas dogs, as well as the more than 200 dogs and cats currently available for adoption at the shelter. All dogs over 6 months old and weighing 30 pounds will cost $ 20, plus the Hamilton County license fee. The reduced dog adoption fee will be valid from August 27 at noon until August 29 at 6 p.m.

“While we believe the pairing process is the best thing for our community and our animals, for one weekend only we will be opening the kennels to the public. For any family unable to find what they are looking for with our Outcomes team , they can be escorted through the kennels in search of a match, “the statement read.
Cincinnati Animal CARE has been “code red” since June. Attached to no-kill and, for animal welfare, to house only one dog per kennel, he considers the shelter to be “code red” when there are 10 empty kennels or less.
“The code red level is the worst it has ever been. Yesterday the count was -26 open kennels, with every emergency kennel used, every office used and pop-up crates used throughout the facility. wherever there is air conditioning, ”said Ray Anderson, Cincinnati Animal CARE media and community relations manager. CityBeat this week. “We have taken in 209 animals in the last 10 days, which is essentially our total capacity as a shelter for dogs and cats. ”

There is no relocation fee, and current owners can contact potential new parents directly to find the best fit.
