Dog Boarding In Cleveland

The Dog Kennel Alternative

Dog owners love Rover's Cleveland dog sitters. 158 owners have reviewed sitters in Cleveland, giving them an average rating of 4.96 /5.

Sit a Dog, Save a Life

Sit a Dog, Save a Life lets you raise money for local dogs-in-need by doing something you do already: asking your neighbors to watch your dog instead of leaving them in a kennel. Many Rover sitters in Cleveland donate a percentage of their earnings to nonprofits through Sit a Dog, Save a Life. When you book with a sitter who has the Rover Donation Badge on their profile, you're helping dogs in need, right here in Cleveland.

WolfSpirit's Rescue

WolfSpirit’s Rescue is a small not for profit 501(c)(3) non profit organization. They are an all volunteer rescue group dedicated to rescue, rehab and re-homing toy breed dogs from commercial kennels, puppy mills, and shelters.

They rescue mostly Chihuahuas, Chinese Cresteds, Shih Tzus, Mini Schnauzers, Brussels Griffons, but are not limited to these breeds. At times you will see a Pap, Pom, Yorkie, or a Poodle in their care. They consist of volunteer families and individuals in the U.S., who foster in their homes. They are always in need of caring people to temporarily foster them until they go home.

Cleveland Animal Protective League

The Cleveland Animal Protective League's mission is to foster compassion and end animal suffering. Incorporated in 1913, they are an independent, nonprofit humane society located in Cleveland's Tremont neighborhood.

As a 501(c)(3) agency, they are not funded or controlled by any government or national animal welfare organization. Their animal shelter, services, and programs are made available through fundraising, donations, foundation and corporate support, and service fees. They are committed to 100 percent placement of adoptable animals and envision a time when every friendly, healthy, homeless animal in our community can be cared for until a new family is found.

The Cleveland APL provides shelter to homeless animals relinquished by their guardians, animals that are rescued from abuse or neglect, and stray or abandoned cats. Stop in and visit the many animals we help and have available for adoption - make one of our friends one of your very best friends!

More on Cleveland

It's chow time in Cleveland so sniff out a great, pet-friendly restaurant. The city is home to several including the Great Lakes Brewing Company and Fat Cats. (Don't worry, this cat doesn't hiss!) At Luxe Kitchen, pet parents will find a great international selection -- and there might be a bowl for your four-legged friend if he asks nicely!

After a big meal, it's time to hit the dog park to work off some of those calories. You and your pal will both find plenty of outdoor exercise at Ohio & Erie Canal Trail -- a preserved, historic canal where you can both sniff out some history.

When it is time to go off-leash and get a good run in, the Clark Field Dog Park will do the trick. Kind folks have even donated trees for shade and maybe even a place to lift a leg. (Don't worry. We won't tell!)

You love your dog. Cleveland loves your dog, too. Whether you're going on vacation or just need a quick sitter book dog boarding in Cleveland on Your dog will thank you for it.
