SPCA Cincinnati, Channel 12 team up for Adopt-A-Thon 2009

SPCA Cincinnati and Local 12 are teaming up to find loving homes for homeless pets with a day-long Adopt-A-Thon on Thursday, April 23.

From 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. adoption fees for all dogs and cats will be 50% off. Animals will be available at both SPCA Cincinnati locations: 11900 Conrey Road, Sharonville and 3949 Colerain Avenue, Northside. For directions please visit

Channel 12 will broadcast live from the Conrey facility throughout the day. Meteorologists Jeff Creighton and Michelle Boutillette will feature adoptable animals on all newscasts beginning at 6:00 a.m. on Good Morning Cincinnati through Local 12 Live at 6:00 p.m.

Local 12 Live at 11:00 p.m. will feature a report on ‘Animal Cops on the Front Line.’ Local 12 Reporter Rich Jaffe followed SPCA humane officers and documented the tough and sometimes dangerous cases they face on a routine basis.

The partnership between SPCA Cincinnati and Local 12 goes back more than a decade. With the help of Local 12, SPCA Cincinnati has been able to reach out to the Tri-State through weekly Adopt A Pet segments and other annual events.
