Did You Know?

Did you know the Cleveland APL has a mobile adoption unit? “Rover,” as it is known, travels to different spots to bring dogs and cats to where people are, whether it’s downtown workers or people at an outdoor festival.


I saw Rover a couple of weeks ago parked downtown near the Justice Center. This is a popular spot for the unit as they hope to attract not only downtown workers but also people on jury duty. If someone is interested in a dog or cat, they can start the adoption process there and pick up the dog later. Sounds like a convenient way to adopt a dog or cat to me!

If you missed Rover last time, don’t worry, the truck will be back downtown again today. Rover will be parked in the Huntington Garage driveway between Ft. Huntington Park and the old Court House on Lakeside Ave. across from the Justice Center from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Also, for this week only, cats are available for adoption for only $5. Tell your friends!

To check out where else Rover will be this summer, visit: https://clevelandapl.org/adopt/cats-on-tour/ If you miss it today, you can catch it Saturday at Rocky River Days, City Hall Complex in Rocky River, from 1 to 4 p.m.

You can also check out more adoptable dogs this Saturday at the grand re-opening of Invisible Fence in Chesterland. The event, which is free to the public, will feature free pet products, giveaways and adoptable dogs from the Geauga Humane Society’s Rescue Village. One lucky winner will win the choice of either a Free Invisible Fence Containment Solution or upgrade, or a free pet door or shields unit.

The grand re-opening will be held this Saturday, July 12, at 8001 Mayfield Rd., Chesterland from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
