Cleveland for a No Kill City will be holding an Adoption Day for dogs and cats on death row at Cleveland Animal Control Saturday.

The Adoption Day will be at Jordan’s BBQ, 910 Stuart Road N.E. from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Dogs, cats, kittens and puppies will be available for adoption. The adoption fee is $50 and includes spay/neuter, first set of vaccinations and de-worm.

On Sunday, Cleveland for a No Kill City put out a plea to the community. Kennels were full and the activists feared that if animals didn't get out of animal control on Monday, dogs and cats would be killed because of over-crowding.

The community responded and enough animals were adopted. However, the number of animals at Cleveland Animal Control remains at capacity due to the number of owner surrenders during the week.

Since the inception of Cleveland for a No Kill City in June, fewer and fewer adoptable pets have been killed at Cleveland Animal Control.

In the last couple months, few to no animals have died at the pound because of overcrowding. Cleveland for a No Kill City is asking the community to help us keep it that way and come out Saturday and adopt a furry family member.

If you can't make it to the Adoption Day on Saturday, visit the Facebook page and follow instructions there to adopt a pet.

Animal control is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday for adoptions, and 10 a.m. to noon on Saturdays. Animal control is located at 360 Hill St. S.E.
