Outdoor Exercise Areas Installed at City Kennel

Today, Home Depot installed new outdoor exercise areas for dogs in the City of Cleveland Kennel. Materials for the new outdoor enclosures were donated by Friends of the Cleveland Kennel and labor and know-how was provided by Home Depot.

“Through our new CITY DOGS initiative, we are making more dogs adoptable than we ever have in the past,” said Chief Animal Control Officer, Ed Jamison. “That means dogs that require an extended stay at the kennel need more exercise to burn off that loveable energy.”

The large, grassed enclosures allow dogs to spend time outside with volunteers and kennel staff off-leash. In addition, the exercise area is ideal for training sessions and a meeting place for dogs and potential adopters.

There are currently 54 dogs up for adoption at the kennel. To view all adoptable CITY DOGS, please visit http://www.petango.com/cacc. The kennel is located at 2690 West 7th Street and is open to the public from 10:00 am-3:00 pm Monday-Saturday and 12:00 pm-2:00 pm on Sunday.

About CITY DOGS Cleveland

CITY DOGS Cleveland is a program of The City of Cleveland’s Division of Animal Care and Control (CACC). The CITY DOGS mission is to increase adoptions from the City Kennel by changing the image of the pit bulls who make up the majority of the kennel population, by preparing all adoptable dogs in the kennel for lives in loving homes and by creating as many opportunities as possible for the public to meet and get to know our dogs for the terrific pets they are meant to be.
