Do you want to adopt a dog or a cat? Cincinnati Animal Care at ‘Code Red’

We’re only eight days away from June, but Cincinnati Animal Care has already taken in a surplus of animals, and the shelter is now at “Code Red” capacity.

The Humane Society’s no-kill animal shelter is currently at fewer than 71 kennels, according to a social media post Tuesday, and its capacity “lingers around the worst it’s ever been with more than two dozens of dogs living in pop-up crates”.

Cincinnati Animal Care urges people to adopt dogs and cats, adopt animals for free, donate supplies or volunteer.

There are about 400 dogs and 50 cats in the shelter or with foster parents looking for their forever homes as of Wednesday, according to the Cincinnati Animal Care website.

As is tradition in animal shelters across the country, many dogs and cats have unique names, including Joey Votto (the dog), currently in a foster home with Reds infielder Jonathan India and his girlfriend Daniella Garcia.
