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 Wanda! I am a 3-year-old pit bull mix with cute pointy ears and a beautiful smile. I am a sweet and gentle soul. I like going for walks and taking naps in the sun. I'm a friendly and laid-back girl who is looking for a loving forever home. If you think that might be with you, come visit me at the APL any day from noon to 5 p.m.!


Hi, my name is Seth! I am a 6-month-old kitten. I am very fun and lovable! My favorite thing is to play, whether it's chasing, batting around or wrestling my toys into submission. I have a big personality and like to “talk” to you to let you know what I think about things. I am very friendly and very affectionate. I love everyone I meet! If you adopt me, I promise to keep you laughing with my goofy kitten antics! Come meet me for yourself any day from noon to 5 p.m. at the APL!
