You can join the fun by adopting a dog or cat this weekend.
(Cleveland) - The Cleveland Animal Protective League has turned 100 years old. The APL was created in 1913.
President Sharon Harvey says their work, though, is not finished. Homeless animals continue to arrive at the Cleveland Animal Protective League for safe haven, and Harvey tells Newsradio WTAM 1100 they continue to work tirelessly to provide them with the care they need and to find homes for them.
To celebrate 100 years of match-making and to continue their tradition of creating “happily ever afters” for pets and their people, the APL has reduced our adoption fees for this weekend.
Through Sunday, February 10, 2013, all adult cats (5 months and over) are available for adoption for only $19.13 and all adult dogs (5 months and over) are available for only $50.
Regular adoption fees are $45 for cats and $95 for dogs.
Because everyone likes presents on their birthday, especially the orphaned animals who come to the APL every day, those who bring four or more cans of puppy or kitten food will receive $20 off the adoption fee of a puppy or kitten.
“Just because we’re 100 years old, doesn’t mean there’s time for us to slow down,” says Harvey. “There’s lots of work still to be done and lots of animals who need us-and YOU! If we work together, we know we can find a home for every animal that needs one. So please help us meet our goal of emptying our cages of every adoptable animal by the end of the day on Sunday. Truly, that’s the BEST birthday present you could give us … and them.”
All dogs and cats are spayed or neutered, tested for heartworm or FeLV/FIV, have received age-appropriate vaccinations and treatment of worms and fleas, and come with helpful species-specific animal care information, a free initial veterinary exam, and a collar with a personalized, engraved ID tag.
All adoptable animals can be seen at www.ClevelandAPL.org. Call (216) 771-4616, ext. 0 if you have any questions about any of the animals or about adoptions.
