​Superman is a young dog receiving care from Laura Person and Amanda Taylor who are working to nurse him back to health after some serious injuries.

“He came in with some pretty significant bite wounds; you can actually see the scarring on his head, he still has some staples in,” Person said. 

Person and Taylor work to help heal dogs and cats that come into the Cincinnati Animal Care Shelter.

It’s no small task to manage. 

"Superman" is a young dog that came to the Cincinnati Shelter in bad shape. His care team is pleased to see his progress and hope he will soon be ready for adoption.

As the months get colder, more animals get dropped off at shelters. And during the holidays, shelters can be overlooked.

“We need people to come out and help us adopt, foster, get animals out the door because we simply just don’t have the room,” said  Meaghan Colville, the director of Lifesaving Operations.

Colville said to encourage adoptions The Holiday Hope Event dropped adoption fees to just $25. 

“Come down and adopt an animal that’s already spayed or neutered and has all their vaccines,” she said. “They’re up to date on everything and they can come home. It’s a great time to adopt with the holidays because most likely a lot of people are going to be home for the holidays. So you get some time to spend with your pet, help them be acclimated to being in your home.”

The shelter is hopeful the combo of lower fees and these irresistible faces can help them reach their goal of emptying the shelter. 

“I’d say right now are the sheer numbers are what’s getting us,” Taylor said, but she said she loves to see these animals like Superman recover. 

“(He’s) going find his forever home. That’s just really rewarding and really worth every day that we are here,” Taylor said.
