Neighborhood Pets Outreach

Themed Saving Lives One Wet Nose at a Time, the Friends of the City of Cleveland Kennel recently held a Neighborhood Pets Outreach and Resource Center Grand Opening on East 65th Street in the heart of the Slavic Village Neighborhood.  In honor of this special occasion, Cleveland Councilman Anthony Brancatelli (Ward 12) presented a resolution for the opening event. 

Founded in 2003, Friends of Cleveland Kennel is dedicated to saving the lives of the animals at the Cleveland Kennel, and helping to reduce intake by providing services to pet-owning residents of Cleveland. These efforts include medical care, supplies, adoptions, outreach, and free services for pet owners in Cleveland.

Through the Cleveland Animal Care and Control (CACC) program and services, many pets find happy and nurturing homes. CACC currently has many wonderful dogs in need of a home! All dogs have been temperament tested, spay/neutered, vaccinated, HW tested, and have a clean bill of health. 

The Cleveland City Kennel is a high volume animal control facility serving the entire city. The Kennel receives over 75 dogs each week which include strays, court cases, and others- all in a large range of age, breed, and size. All dogs are held the mandatory hold time, then are either adopted or transferred to other rescue facilities or areas, if the temperament and health are acceptable. Adoptable dogs can be seen online here, and information and assistance is available at 216.505.5853
