Help Clear The Shelters On Saturday!

August 16, 2019

Clear The Shelters is tomorrow, Saturday August 17th! Clear The Shelters is a nationwide event where participating shelters across the country have either waived or reduced adoption fees! The idea is to help these amazing animals find their forever homes and to literally clear the shelters. We have so many dogs and kitties who will be the perfect match for your family!

10 out of 10 APL Staff Members say Almond is good for your heart! Almond will keep you active, she promises to get rid of any hot dogs in your fridge (by eating them herself), and there is nothing quite as fulfilling as coming home to a dog who is elated to see you at the end of the day. Do something good for yourself and come adopt Almond today!

At the Cleveland APL, we'll be having extended business hours. We're normally open from 10am-5pm, but we will be open from 9am-6pm! Dogs and cats 3 years or older will have waived adoption fees, and cats under 3 years have a reduced adoption fee of $25! So at the APL, the only money you'll be spending is for the Cuyahoga County License (which is $21). City Dogs Cleveland will also have reduced adoption fees of $21!

One of us is guilty and one of us is plotting. Which one am I? --

Expect the shelters to be full and probably some longer-than-usual wait times for meet and greets with the dogs, so make sure you plan ahead! At the APL, we always encourage dog to dog meet and greets so we can make sure everyone will get along with each other at home! So if you have your own resident dog, bring them along (with a friend or family member who can hang out in the car with them) so that way after you've met with the dog, we can go straight to the dog to dog meet and greet! Want to get a cat? Don't forget to bring your carrier! And for the dog, don't forget the leash! 

The love of your life is waiting for you!
