Our Mission is to provide the necessary medical & general care to the homeless & abused dogs and cats, while working to raise awareness in the community by providing affordable training & education to Cleveland residents.  The City of Cleveland Kennel is the most overlooked animal facility in the Cleveland area. It is often confused with the APL or County Kennel but is an entirely separate facility. Most of the animals that arrive at the kennel have been abused or neglected; they are all very special, but they have not been the given the life that they deserve. It is the goal of the Friends of the City of Cleveland Kennel to provide them hope for a new beginning.
