CLEVELAND, Ohio - The Cleveland Kennel plays an essential role in finding homes for unwanted animals.
For the past several years the kennel would hold dogs until other shelters and rescue facilities could take over. That has just changed.
With the help of the Animal Protective League , veterinarians will spay, neuter, and make sure dogs from the Cleveland Kennel are adoptable.
"The animals will come to us on a Wednesday morning. There will be three dogs per week. Our veterinarians will spay and neuter them so they'll be ready to adopt from the kennel," said Sharon Harvey, CEO Cleveland Animal Protective League.
Not all shelters and rescue groups in the area have access to spay and neuter surgery. That's why the APL is willing to offer their services to others.
"All we care about is that these animals all find homes. If they get adopted from the kennel, from us, or a rescue group, we all celebrate," Harvey said.
The Cleveland Kennel is located at 2690 West 7th St. near Interstate 490. It is open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
