What do I do if my dog escapes?

First, call the Police Department at 440-871-1234 and describe your pet. Your dog may be in our kennel or being held by another resident and the Police Department will be happy to facilitate your reunion. If your dog has been missing for 24 hours, the Bay Village Police Department will refer you to the County Animal Shelter as the County Dog Warden picks up strays from our kennel every day Monday through Friday as needed. 

The County will kennel dogs for 72 hours (3 days) and, if not claimed, will put the animal up for adoption.
