“We hope our ‘Home for the Howlidays’ event brings much-needed attention to the many wonderful adoptable dogs at the Cleveland Kennel,” says Ed Jamison, Chief Animal Control Officer. “Through October of this year, 672 dogs had been reunited with their owners, 294 were adopted and 1,744 have been transferred to The Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter, The Cleveland Animal Protective League, as well as our many other animal rescue partners.”

The Cleveland Kennel is located at 2690 West 7th Street and is open to the public Monday through Saturday from 10:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.  To arrange a meet and greet with a specific dog, email the Cleveland Animal Control Volunteers at
