Local 12

It would be hard to find a more loyal, supportive and generous friend to SPCA Cincinnati than that of Local 12, Cincinnati’s CBS affiliate television station. Since 1988, SPCA staff have brought dogs and cats into the homes of hundreds of thousands of viewers annually to promote their adoption, and the continued support of animal welfare through our annual Adopt-a-Pet Fund TV show (telethon). The hundreds of thousands of dollars raised through the telethon have supported our efforts to care for unwanted and homeless animals in the Tri-State.



Being Married with Microphones allows Chris O’Brien and his wife, Janeen Coyle together to talk about one of their most precious causes, animal welfare. Adopted pet owners themselves, their care and concern for animals shines through every Wednesday morning during “Franks Friends,” one of the most popular radio segments in the Tri-State. Frank was a Pug-not just any Pug, just ask Janeen who wrote a children’s book about him. Frank passed away and within weeks, SPCA Cincinnati had found his earthly successor, Tank. Janeen and Tank are inseparable, as is our relationship with this fun-loving and supportive couple who rarely turn down a request to emcee, judge a contest or present an award at our special events.
