Name: Mufasa
Age: 2 years
Sex: Male
Breed: Bull Mastiff/Cane Corso mix
Notes: Needs an owner with a fenced yard. No special needs.
Bio: Mufasa is a gentle giant: affectionate, well mannered, and sweet. He walks well on a leash and enjoys going for a ride in the car. He requires a lot of social attention, so he needs a family to commit to him as much as he commits to them.

Name: Athos
Age: Unknown
Sex: Male
Breed: Tabby/Domestic Shorthair
Notes: He has a chronic stuffy nose, but it doesn’t affect his health or his playfulness—if anything, it makes him cuter.
Bio: This snuggly guy is dignified and suave, like Athos from The Three Musketeers. Shelter: Save the Animals Foundation, (513) 561-7823,

ImLouie’s Legacy

Name: Nellie
Age: 1 year
Sex: Female
Breed: Potbellied Pig
Notes: Litter box trained. Requires fenced yard. Kid and animal friendly.
Bio: Bored of cats and dogs? This little piggy was raised as a house pet. If Nellie isn’t cuddling with her foster family, she’s probably outside exploring or running laps around her canine friends. She’s still a pig at heart and enjoys every snack you toss her way.
