CLEVELAND — If you've been wanting a four-legged friend in your life, there's no better time than now to give a dog a loving home because for eight days in honor of the All-Star Game, the City of Cleveland Division of Animal Care & Control is reducing adoption fees from $61 to $21.

With the influx of stray dogs following the Fourth of July, the kennel is at capacity and management at the kennel expects it to become even busier.

All adoptable dogs are vaccinated, micro-chipped, spayed/neutered and come with a license.

“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.”

All adoptable dogs can be viewed here or at the kennel, 9203 Detroit Avenue. Walk-in adoptions are welcome, but appointments are encouraged by email or by calling 216-664-3476.
