Programs - There are multiple programs that support the work of Cleveland for a No Kill City. Find where you fit into the movement. Pound teams are the volunteers who go into animal control every day to take photographs of animals who are awaiting adoption. The pound teams then post these photos on various social media sites. Phone team volunteers answer phones and emails in shifts to help facilitate adoptions. Catnippers volunteers operate Cleveland for a No Kill City’s trap-neuter-return program for feral and unsocialized cats. The barn cat relocation working group works to get feral and unsocialized cats from animal control, get them spayed/neutered and relocated into permanent homes in barns.
