CITY DOGS 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. Our meet and greets are scheduled by appointment, so please wait to receive a confirmation on your date/time before going to the kennel!

The kennel is located at 9203 Detroit Ave, Cleveland OH, 44102. Right now, the windows 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! We also sometimes host "walk-up" adoption event, during which an appointment is not required, which are shared on our Facebook page (City Dogs Cleveland.)

Before requesting a meet, please visit to see our currently available dogs. If you think one or more 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, and describing the household where the dog would be living. 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.

Adopting a dog as a new family member 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. We ask that you only make an appointment to meet dogs if everyone in the household is serious and prepared to adopt. Of course, we understand that you have to find the dog that "clicks" and is the right match, so we understand if that doesn't happen right away, and you are welcome to meet multiple dogs at a time. But if you come for a meet, 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.

We ask that all members of the family, including resident dogs, be present for the meet! This is an important part of making sure that the dog will be a good fit. Again, please do not come to the kennel until you have heard back from one of our adoption counselors confirming a specific time. Similarly, if you have to cancel your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible.
