 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 Rascal! I am a 4-year-old, 33-pound Beagle. I am a super-sweet and friendly guy. Like most Beagles, I like to have my nose to the ground and follow scents. But I also love to cuddle and sit on your lap. I know how to "sit" on command. I am a gentle soul who loves all people, including kids, and would make a great family dog! You can come meet me at the APL any day from noon to 5 p.m.!


Hi, my name is Vanilla. I am a 10-month-old mediumhair kitten. When I first came to the APL, I was very scared. Now I am much braver and have learned I love getting pets and attention! My brother Coconut is more shy than me. I would love to go to a home with him so I can keep him company. That's not a requirement, though. You can meet us any day from noon to 5 p.m. at the APL!
