Welcome to APL. We are committed to caring for sick, injured, abused and abandoned dogs and cats… and finding the best possible permanent homes for them. There are several different links on different pages which will aid you in learning more about our awesome adoptable animals…as well as our shelter, volunteer opportunities, humane investigations, community programs and events…check out all of our pages, and come back often! Scroll down for current APL news, needs and activities.



Thanks to our Pen Pals, who sponsor a dog kennel or cat room for one year by donating $1,000. To find out how you can be a Pen Pal or Rescue Partner, click the button on the menu above.

 Hi, my name is Clay! I am a 1-year-old Hound/St. Bernard mix. I am new to the shelter, so the staff will add more information as they get to know me. Or you can come meet me for yourself, any day from noon to 5 p.m. at the APL!


Hello, my name is Rosie. I am a beautiful 3-year-old cat. I have a bit of an independent streak and sometimes I just like to do my own thing. But when I want to hang out with my people, I'm very sweet and friendly. Come meet me any day from noon to 5 p.m. at the APL
