We’re getting closer to the end of the year, and some amazing pooches are still in need of loving homes. If you’re looking to adopt in either the Columbus or Cleveland areas, learn more about  these pups—one of them might be the canine companion of your dreams!

These Pups in Columbus Are Ready to Go Home with You:

The ASPCA Cruelty Recovery Center in Columbus, Ohio, has two special dogs who are eager to find their new families.



This fun, energetic boy is looking for a home where he can spread his wings and brighten up everyone’s day with his smile! He’s a goofy pup who’ll always be there for you when you need a laugh. Slinky has been with us for some time, and we hope you’re the one he’s been dreaming of! His ideal home would share an active lifestyle with him and help him learn to settle when needed. He’s eager to exercise and train with you! Learn more about him by visiting his profile!

Van Gogh


Van Gogh is a wonderful little guy who can’t wait to cozy up with you on the couch! He may be blind, but that doesn’t hold him back one bit, as he explores the world with full confidence. If you’re looking for the ultimate snuggle buddy who has an independent side too, visit Van Gogh’s profile to learn more!

If You’re Near Cleveland, Check Out These Dashing Dogs:

Our good friends at Rescue Village near Cleveland, Ohio, asked us to help spread the word about two of their playful pups who are waiting for homes—Shenzi and Banjo! Both dogs are proud graduates of the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center in North Carolina. Read more about them below:



Shenzi is a clever dog who is looking for a patient owner who will give him the time he needs to get comfortable in his new home! He’d especially do well if there was a confident, social dog sibling in the home who can show him the ropes. Learn more about this handsome boy on his profile!



Banjo is a pup who knows what he likes in life! He can be shy when he meets someone new, but after some tasty treats and playtime, he’ll soon be zooming around happily. This pointy-eared boy is sure to be your new adventure partner in no time! Visit his profile to learn all about Banjo!

You can also check out your local shelter or visit our friends at Animal Care Centers of NYC!
