Rockdale: Cincinnati Animal CARE

CincyPet Magazine's Rescue Dog of the Week

Rockdale is a super senior pittie mix available for adoption with Cincinnati Animal CARE in Northside. At 11 years old, this laid-back boy seems to have had a tough life. He came to the shelter extremely malnourished and unsure whether he could trust again. Since being at the shelter, he has shown what a sweet and gentle boy he is.

Rockdale loves gentle kisses and scratches behind his ear. His favorite spot is in a seat by the window, so he can watch the world pass by! Rockdale might not have had the greatest life beforehand, but he is ready to live out his golden years in a loving home—not the shelter! Rockdale is currently in a foster home, so contact the shelter if you are interested in meeting this sweet, senior boy.

If you are interested in giving this sweet boy a chance, email foster.adoption@cincycare.org 

The fee to adopt adult dogs (6 months and older) is $75. Dogs adopted from Cincinnati Animal CARE have the following included with their adoption fee: age-appropriate vaccines (Bordetella, distemper, parvo, and rabies); heartworm test and deworming; preventative care (heartworm, flea, and tick); a microchip; and a Hamilton County dog license.

Cincinnati Animal CARE Human Society is the county animal shelter responsible for taking in stray animals in Hamilton County. Cincinnati Animal CARE is committed to the nationwide no-kill movement. Since taking over the shelter in August 2020, they have maintained a live release for dogs over 97% and for cats over 91%.
