  • City of Cleveland Kennel is Full - Adoptable Dogs are Online!

    The City of Cleveland Kennel is located at 9203 Detroit Avenue. All adoptable dogs are vaccinated, microchipped, spayed/neutered and come with a Cuyahoga County license. Drop-ins are welcome but appointments are encouraged.

  • Plankton Fund Gives Dogs Second Chances

    The Plankton Fund was created in response to the heartworm positive dogs that come into the Cleveland Animal Care and Control (CACC) that have limited options due to the cost of heartworm treatment

  • Lost and Found Pet Listings

     Current lost and found pet listings for the City of Cleveland can be found on Petango. Those looking for lost pets are asked to NOT solely rely on this website. This site is simply one tool to assist owners when they can't visit the kennel. Otherwise, they are asked to come as often as possible, preferably daily but at least once every three business days. It is the owner's responsibility to come in person and look through the kennel.

  • View Adoptable Kennel Pets Online

    There are some great adoptable dogs at the Cleveland Kennel that would make wonderful additions to local families. Full details- including images, safer assessment results and some videos- can be seen by clicking on their pictures.

  • Animal Protection League Trap-Neuter-Return Program for Stray Cats and Kittens

    Feral and free-roaming cats are the largest contributors to the cat overpopulation crisis. Those caring for strays are invited to take advantage of APL services! For only $10 the program includes spay or neuter surgery, ear-tipping, rabies vaccination, and FVRCP vaccination. Humane traps are available for $5.
