We welcome visitors by appointment only. Most of our dogs do not live on the premises, but are in foster homes awaiting their adoption. Therefore, we can not accommodate walk-in visitors to our adoption center to meet dogs. We operate our adoption center through The Mutt Hutt, a daycare and boarding facility for dogs, in Tremont on Cleveland’s west side. Sharing space during peak hours can be challenging for our meet and greets because our dogs can get over-excited, and we prefer to have a more peaceful setting for both our visitors and our dogs. Since placing dogs is our top priority, we are more than willing to work around the busy schedules of our visitors.
