Launches “Find your Pit o’ Gold” at Cleveland City Kennel

CLEVELAND — The City of Cleveland and the Division of Animal Care and Control are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day by offering reduced and waived adoption fees for lucky adopters from March 11-19, 2017.

The Division’s “Find your Pit o’ Gold!” campaign aims to find homes for the mostly pit bull and pit bull mixes awaiting adoption. Adopters are invited to ‘try their luck’ by reaching into a ‘Pot o' Gold’ once they have chosen their new family member.

Each adopter has a chance to draw a gold coin that gives a discounted or free adoption.

“We have nearly 60 CITY DOGS looking for loving homes,” said Chief Animal Control Officer, Ed Jamison, “We are hoping families will come to the kennel to find a new family member and participate in some St. Patrick’s Day fun.”

Adoptable CITY DOGS can be viewed at or at the kennel, located at 2690 W. 7th St. Open hours are Monday-Saturday 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m.-2 p.m. Pre-arranged meets are encouraged and can be scheduled by emailing or by calling the adoption hotline at 216-664-3476.

About CITY DOGS Cleveland

CITY DOGS is a program of Cleveland Animal Care and Control. The CITY DOGS mission is to increase adoptions from the City Kennel by changing the image of the pit bull-type dogs 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.
