Cleveland Kennel Will Get New Home on Detroit Ave.
Currently located down near Clark Fields in a building that wasn't designed to house animals for lengthy periods of time, the kennel will get a new, permanent home at Detroit Ave. and West 83rd Street next year. The new location will be an improvement in just about every way — dogs will not be housed in one room with cages stacked on cages, instead in groups of ten in rooms, which officials say should cut down on the barking that is a natural byproduct of putting dozens and dozens and dozens of dogs all in the same room.
“There have been so many discussions and planning sessions to get this thing up to the point, and we’re very excited about it,” Chief Animal Control Officer Ed Jamison told Fox 8
. "The outdoor space is just as important. People don't realize that, that yeah what you can do in the building is huge, but lots of areas to get dogs outside, to get them fresh air and get them exercise and socialize.”
The plans to find a new home for the Cleveland Kennel, long talked about, are finally coming to fruition.
