About Our Shelter...

CITY DOGS Cleveland is a program of Cleveland Animal Care Control (CACC), located at 9203 Detroit Ave, Cleveland, OH 44102. Public hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday-Sunday from 10am to 3pm and Tuesday and Thursday from 10am to 6pm. The CITY DOGS mission is to increase adoptions from the Cleveland City Kennel by changing the image of the pit bulls 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. 

Our Adoption Process...

Here's a little about how things work:

All of the CITY DOGS posted for adoption are available for direct adoption from the kennel, unless otherwise noted (for example when fosters are sought for medical reasons.) Potential adopters meet with an adoption counselor to meet with and learn about adoptable dogs of interest.
