CLE Animal Care & Control Offers Reduced Adoption Fees for the Holidays

The City of Cleveland’s Division of Animal Care & Control has reduced its adoption fees for the holidays in the hopes of getting more CITY DOGS into forever homes.

The $61 fee has been reduced to just $40 now through Christmas Eve, December 24th. Every CITY DOG available for adoption is vaccinated, microchipped, spayed/neutered and comes with a 2018 Cuyahoga County license.

“We currently have 87 CITY DOGS awaiting loving homes. There’s a match for every family looking to adopt and our Adoption Counselors are happy to help find the right fit,” said Michelle Harvanek, Shelter Operations Manager. “We would love to see all of these dogs in loving homes for the holidays.”
