Have you ever wanted your very own Pokemon? Well now you can! This stunning young man is only about 2 years old and a playgroup rock star. This American pit bull terrier mix is CincyPet Magazine’s rescue dog of the week. He is available for adoption with Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society in Northside.
He seems to love other dogs, and was said to do well during his cat test. (We always recommend doing slow intros in the home though.) The shelter advises bringing all family members down to meet with Raichu to ensure it’s a match. Raichu is currently in a foster home, so an appointment is needed to meet him.
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 (bordatella, distempter, parvo, and rabies); heartworm test and deworming; preventative care (heartworm, flea and tick); a microchip; and a Hamilton County dog license. For more information or to fill out an application to adopt Raichu, contact the shelter at 513.541.PETS (7387).
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 nation-wide 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%.
