The Kent Police Department operates their own kennel. The kennel is located at 1220 Mogadore Road. It is in the beige building at the corner of Mogadore Road and Cherry Street. The entrance to the kennel is opposite the microwave tower.
About the Kennel
This kennel is larger than the previous one. The runs for the dogs are larger, there is more exercise room for the dogs and one of the runs is larger than the others in order to accommodate large dogs. There is also a larger area for people to interact with the animals as they consider adoption.
Access to the actual building is restricted to Police Department employees, but the runs are inside/outside and the dogs can be viewed anytime during daytime hours. There is video camera surveillance of the area. It is illegal to dump animals at the city kennel.
If you are interested in adopting a dog from the kennel, please contact Compliance Officer Dunn or Gardner at 330-673-7732, from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m, Monday through Friday.
