CITY DOGS Cleveland Meet & Greet Request
Thank you so much for your interest in adopting a CITY DOG! Please be sure to read the following information before completing the form below. Scheduling an appointment for your meet is highly recommended so we can ensure an adoption counselor is ready to meet you! 

Before your meet, we recommend reading this useful document: What to Know Before Adopting a CITY DOG

The kennel is located at 9203 Detroit Ave, Cleveland OH, 44102. The timeframes for meet appointments are: Tuesday 12-6pm, Wednesday 12-3pm, Thursday 12-6pm, Friday 12-3pm, Saturday 10am-3pm and Sunday 10am-3pm. Sometimes exceptions can be made to accommodate different schedules - we will try to work with you!

If you think one or more of our dogs might be a good fit for your family, the next step is to complete the form below. This helps us get to know a little bit about your household and what you're looking for in a new dog. Be sure to COMPLETELY fill out this form with information on the person/family actually planning to adopt. Please note, you must be at least 18 years old to adopt a dog. Once you respond to our questions, one of our adoption counselors will be contacting you to discuss details and next steps. Make sure you enter the correct email, as that is how we will be reaching out!

It is our goal, first and foremost, to make a match that is a good fit for both the dog and the new family! Most of our dogs are found as strays in the City of Cleveland, so we rarely know their backgrounds, and cannot guarantee behavior one way or the other once in a home. However, we rely on observations from volunteers and staff who have interacted with the dogs to do our best to make successful matches! The more details you can provide in your application below, the better, as this will help our adoption counselors prepare to make the best possible matches.

We ask that all members of the family, including resident dogs, be present for the meet and greet. You may come all at once, or over multiple visits. This is an important part of making sure that the dog will be a good fit.  Adopting a dog is incredibly rewarding, but it is also a financial, emotional, and time commitment! Please make sure everyone in the household has discussed the decision to adopt a dog and is onboard with the responsibility. You are welcome to meet multiple dogs during your meet and greet to find the right match. Please be prepared to take your new dog home within a few days - we cannot hold dogs for an extended period due to lack of kennel space.
