My story

Meet Rocky! Rocky Road is a medium energy dog. When he is inside he is very calm, respectful and a cuddle bug and when he's outside he's curious and likes to play. Rocky currently lives on the 11th floor of an apartment building in Downtown Cincinnati. He's very smart when it comes to potty training. He hasn't had any accidents in the apartment and politely lets me know if he's ready to go out. Rocky Road is the type of dog that makes people friends wherever he goes. He loves to frequent dog friendly restaurants and is a favorite of the production staff of Shirley filming downtown. He knows how to sit, lay down and is very good on a leash even with all the distractions of being a city slicker. He's very gentle when he meets new people and always very happy to be offered a treat. Rocky Road is the perfect companion dog. He's ready to find a furever home where he can share all his love and make many memories with you.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Some dogs are at the shelter and some are in a foster home. If the dog you like is at the shelter, please contact the person listed. She will fill you in on all the details. If the dog you are interested in adopting is currently in a foster home, please EMAIL the individual "Foster Parent" noted in the description.

An Adoption Form Questionnaire will be emailed back to you. Upon completion, email the application back to spdrapp@shelteredpaws.com

After review, we will be happy to set up an appointment for you to come and visit with the dog in the foster home. If the adoption is appropriate, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract.

A nominal adoption fee is charged for each dog. This fee includes a vet check, all shots, any necessary medical work and medication, spay/neuter (if possible and appropriate). All of our work is volunteer. WE MAKE NO PROFIT ON THESE ADOPTIONS. This fee does NOT include those additional things we supply while the pet is in our care e.g. pet supplies, food, toys, grooming, training, etc. (plus a heck of a lot of hugs!)

More about this rescue

Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue was established in 1997 in order to save shelter dogs that need a foster placement.

We are a 501 (3) (c) non-profit organization. All donations are tax-deductible.

The reasons for fostering include:

  • Orphans too young for adoption
  • Nursing mothers
  • Mildly sick/injured dogs
  • Dogs that have been abused
  • Dogs that can not adjust to living in a shelter environment
Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue and a local shelter work together to place these dogs in temporary, loving foster homes. When you adopt from us, you are helping to save a shelter dog!!

Our Goal is to save shelter dogs in need and place them in good homes. To promote the placement of special need dogs with the help of adoption bags, grooming, socialization, and providing needed supplies. To pair the right dog with the right human companion(s), enriching everyone's lives.

Our Mission is to develop trust and love with a dog that needs to be reminded that many humans can and will take good, loving care of it for the rest of its lives. To then find loving homes for these previously abused, abandoned, sick, neglected and confused dogs. To give the dog a solid re-start with behavior, health, and trust. To spay/neuter our rescued dogs of age to stop the cycle of unwanted litters.
