 Adoption fees are just $61 which, according to the kennel, includes basic vaccinations, microchipping and a spay/neuter if needed.

They are also imploring those who have recently lost their dog to check their website where they have pictures of each dog they have received as a stray. If you see a potential match to your lost dog, call 216-664-3069.

They also gave some advice for owners with dogs at risk of running away on their Facebook post:

"KEEP YOUR DOG HOME - please do everything you can to keep your pets safely at home. We need to slow down the number of strays being found in our city. Double check gates and doors, keep pets on leash while out and about. Be proactive - make sure your pet is wearing up-to-date identification and is microchipped! Accidents happen, and if your dog does get loose, these forms of identification will make it easier for us (or a neighbor) to get your pet back home."
