Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter

At CCAS we believe that every animal that comes to call our agency home, matters. We track all intakes and outcomes according to the nationally recognized standards. We know you care about the dogs that come here and what happens to them.


2019 Live Release Rate 94.3%


We adopted out 1450 dogs to new homes, returned 211 dogs to their owners, and transferred 62 dogs to partner agencies for placement. It is important to note that CCAS does not euthanize for space. When our facility is at capacity, we engage our partners to help move out healthy, friendly, adoptable animals.
