Adopt an All-Star at the City of Cleveland Kennel

Friday, July 5, 2019

CLEVELAND - The City of Cleveland Division of Animal Care & Control will reduce its adoption fees in time for MLB All-Star Week so you can adopt your very own four-legged All-Star. Fees will be reduced July 6-14 from $61 to $21.

The kennel has been full lately and with the influx of stray dogs following the Fourth of July, it’s expected to become busier. All adoptable dogs are vaccinated, microchipped, spayed/neutered and come with a Cuyahoga County license. Normal adoption processes and policies will be followed during the reduced fee event.

“We have over 90 adoptable CITY DOGS and new dogs are coming in every day,” said Colleen Siedlecki, Manager of Animal Control Services. “Whether you’re looking for an athletic all-star, a patio pal, or a dog who has spent time in a foster home, we have Adoption Counselors available to help find the right match for your family.”

Adoptable CITY DOGS can be viewed at or at the kennel, located at 9203 Detroit Ave. Regular open hours are Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m.-3 p.m.; and Tuesday and Thursday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Walk-in adoptions are welcome, but appointments are encouraged. Make an appointment to meet with an Adoption Counselor by emailing or by calling the adoption hotline at 216-664-3476.
