Public Animal Welfare Society (PAWS Ohio) has dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens for adoption. Adopt a pet in Cleveland, OH.
The Cleveland Animal Protective League’s mission is to foster compassion and end animal suffering. Incorporated in 1913, we are an independent, nonprofit humane society located in Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood. As a 501(c)(3) agency, we are not funded or controlled by any government agency or national animal welfare organization. We receive no tax dollars. Our animal shelter, services, and programs are made available through fundraising, donations, foundation and corporate support, and service fees. We have achieved the goal of 100 percent placement of healthy, friendly, adoptable animals and envision a time when every treatable, rehabilitatable, homeless animal in our community can be cared for until a new family is found. The Cleveland APL provides shelter to homeless animals relinquished by their guardians, animals that are rescued from abuse or neglect, stray dogs that are transferred in from municipal shelters for adoption, and stray or abandoned cats. We provide low-cost spay/neuter services to other animal shelters and rescue groups, feral cat caretakers (trap/neuter/return), and limited low-lost spay/neuter services for financially qualified pet owners through PetFix Northeast Ohio. Stop in and visit the many animals we help and have available for adoption – make one of our friends one of your very best friends!
We adopt our dogs and cats to approved individuals and families. We also take more than one application on an animal and choose the best match. We will consider only those rescue organizations who are 501C3's. This means they must be non- profit organizatons that also adopt only to approved individuals and families, and will not sell any animal to the public, including retail establishments and pet stores.

The Kennel, along with the Cleveland Animal Control Volunteers, are celebrating Ohio Animal Week by waiving adoption fees from June 1 through June 7.CLEVELAND, Ohio -- There's no shortage of adoptable dogs, cats, farm animals, even snakes in Northeast Ohio shelters. In Cuyahoga County alone, hundreds of animals are up for adoption right now.We have a special place in our hearts for the bully breeds and LOVE pitbulls, but will take in any four-legged of any breed. We made a commitment to The Cleveland Animal Control to rescue pit bulls from death row. When able, we also pull from pounds in southern Ohio or take in owner surrenders or strays. We appropriately vet them and get them healthy. Most are underweight, neglected or abused. Some have major health concerns - heartworm, orthopedic issues, etc. We are funded by ourselves & by the generous donations of others. The adoption fees help cover the pets' vet bills (spay/neuter, vaccinations, etc) and allow us to continue to save other dogs. In addition to fostering and placing homeless animals we help network any animal in need.
