We are happy to welcome clients back into our building through pre-scheduled appointments and designated browsing hours. Masks are required for all vaccinated and unvaccinated visitors.
To create an appointment to meet with a dog or a cat, please submit the adopter survey from our website (https://clevelandapl.org/adopt/adoptable-animals/). Once we receive your survey, an adoptions associate will contact you via phone to review your survey and schedule an appointment.
We will still be offering curbside appointments as well.
Open browsing times are Thursday – Saturday from 11am-3pm, Sunday 12-3pm, and Monday – Tuesday 11am-3pm.
We will be limiting the number of people allowed into the building for browsing, so you may have to wait outside until we are able to accommodate your party. We ask that you bring only the members of your immediate household or those who will frequently be spending time with your prospective new pet to browse with you. Please bring a valid photo ID and be ready to adopt
At the Cleveland APL, there is an opportunity to make happily ever afters for animals in need every day. We have many wonderful dogs, cats, and small mammals that are waiting for their new families to take them home.
3,546 animals were adopted in 2020!
