New Dogs Play For Life Program at CACC a Big Success for homeless dogs!


In 2016, Cleveland Animal Care & Control (CACC) began the new program “Dogs Playing for Life”.

This has tremendously improved the dogs’ quality of life and adopt-ability while waiting to be adopted at C.A.C.C. through the City Dogs adoption program!  Friends of the Cleveland Kennel invested over $16,000 towards building play yards to make this program possible. Thanks to the generous support of our donors and The Petfinder Foundation, we were able to do this for the animals in need at animal control.
