Each practice day, the Browns, via social media, will announce open sign ups to meet local animals in need of homes from the Northeast Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). Due to health and safety concerns, walk-up adoptions are not available at this time. Since the program’s launch in 2015, 560 puppies from the Northeast Ohio SPCA have been adopted by Browns fans. The Northeast Ohio SPCA is a non-profit no-kill pet shelter located in Parma. With each adoption, Sugardale will provide new owners with a puppy starter kit (while supplies last), as well as a station for families to take their first family photo with their new puppy.

All net proceeds from all Browns Pro Shop sales are donated to the Cleveland Browns Foundation.
