See the new multi-million dollar Cleveland Animal Care & Control building

The new Cleveland Animal Care & Control Building has opened on Detroit Ave, with innovative design and facilities.

City officials came together to cut the ribbon on the new Cleveland Animal Care & Control Building (9203 Detroit Ave), a $6.2 million new facility for Cleveland’s dog adoption program.

The former kennel, which was located on West 7th Street near Tremont Park, opened more than 40 years ago with stacked cages in close quarters.

The new facility covers over 15,000 square feet, and features various modern kennel elements. Its innovative design approach uses natural light, fresh air, indoor/outdoor connections,  meet-and-greet rooms for potential adopters and even scent diffusion to cut down on smell.

Highlights include individual ventilated and drained animal cages providing a safe and clean healthy environment. The floor plan also features 10 separate pods with 10 animal cages to provide flexibility in housing animals, ample natural light, adjacent cleaning facilities and secure outdoor space, including four large fenced-in play areas.

You can meet adoptable dogs now on The¬†Cleveland Animal Care & Control’s website.
