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.

Hi, my name is Sophie! I am a 3-year-old, 57-pound Golden Retriever mix. When I came to the APL, I had an injured leg that had to be amputated. I am learning how to get around on three legs just fine, though! I am a very friendly, loving dog. Even when I was injured, I was always as sweet as can be to everyone, giving out kisses and cuddles. I like to go for walks and play. I would make a great family dog! You can come meet me any day from noon to 5 p.m. at the APL!


Hi, my name is Nadine! I am a friendly and laid-back 3-year-old cat. I don't like to play too much; I prefer to relax and hang out with my people. I'm very sweet and affectionate. I love getting my chin scratched and I even give nice kisses in return! I'd love to have a forever family I can hang out with and cuddle up to all the time! If you think that could be you, come meet me any day from noon to 5 p.m. at the APL!
