LaGrange dogs to be featured at Cleveland Browns Football Training Camp

Around 70 dogs and puppies from LaGrange are traveling to Cleveland, Ohio starting this week to be featured in the Cleveland Browns Football Training Camp at their Puppy Pound.

The Browns Puppy Pound is an area at the Cleveland Browns Football Training Camp where dogs from the Notheast Ohio SPCA, or Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, are featured as available for adoption.

The Puppy Pipeline is transporting the animals from City of LaGrange Animal Services to be a part of the Browns Puppy Pound. The LaGrange Animals Services is partnering with the Northeast Ohio SPCA to help get the animals adopted.

Thirty-five dogs and puppies are already in Cleveland. Another 34 dogs are scheduled to leave Tuesday.

This is the fifth year the Cleveland Browns have hosted the Browns Puppy Pound.

Since the Puppy Pound launched in 2015, a total of 223 puppies from the Northeast Ohio SPCA were adopted by Browns fans at training camp practices.

LaGrange Animal Services is proud of its partnership with the Puppy Pipeline since its inception in 2007. In 2018, 940 animals were saved and in 2017,  497 animals were saved.

The animals sent on the Puppy Pipeline typically spend less than a week on the adoption floor before they find their forever home.
