Bring Home a CITY DOG for the Holidays

The City of Cleveland’s Division of Animal Care & Control is reducing adoption fees now through Dec. 31.  Adoption fees will be lowered from $61 to $21 in an effort to get more dogs in homes during the holiday season.

“We have many great dogs up for adoption who are ready to go home,” Said Michelle Harvanek, Shelter Operations Manager, “We currently have over 100 dogs to choose from – with all types of personalities – and our Adoption Counselors will help find the best match for your family.”

Every adoptable dog is vaccinated, microchipped, spayed/neutered and comes with a Cuyahoga County license. Normal adoption processes and policies will be followed during the reduced fee event.

Adoptable CITY DOGS can be viewed at or at the kennel, located at 2690 W. 7th St. Walk-in adoptions are accepted, but appointments are encouraged. Potential adopters are asked to bring the whole family and any resident dogs. Make an appointment to meet with an Adoption Counselor by emailing or by calling the adoption hotline at 216-664-3476.

The kennel is open for walk-ins 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday-Saturday and noon to 2 p.m. on Sunday, but appointments can be made outside these hours.

Here are some of the dogs available for adoption.
