Superman is a young dog who receives care from Laura Pearson and Amanda Taylor who work to restore him to health after some serious injuries.

“He came in with some pretty big cuts; you can actually see the scars on his head, and he still has some staples on it,” Pearson said.

Person and Taylor work to help dogs and cats enter the Cincinnati Animal Shelter.

It is not easy to manage.

As the months cool, more animals are taken to shelters. And during vacations, shelters can be overlooked.

“We need people to come out and help us adopt and raise animals and get them out of the house because we simply don’t have the room,” said Megan Colville, director of Save Lives Operations.

To encourage adoptions, the Holiday Hope event has lowered the adoption fee to just $25, Colville said.

“Come on and adopt an animal that has already been spayed or neutered and has all of its vaccinations,” she said. “They are up to date with everything and can go home. It is a great time for adoption with the holidays because most likely a lot of people will be coming home for the holidays. So that you get some time to spend with your pet, help him adjust to being in your home.”

The shelter hopes that the combination of low fees and these irresistible faces can help them reach their goal of emptying the shelter.

“I would say now it’s the sheer numbers that make us feel good,” Taylor said, but said she’d love to see animals like Superman recover.

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