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 Simone! I am a 7-year-old Beagle/Husky mix. Basically, I've got the body of a Beagle and the coloring of a Husky, including my beautiful blue eyes. I really love people and I love getting attention. I like to run and it would be great if I could have a fenced-in backyard where I can explore and play. I do well with kids and I am housebroken. Did I mention I love people? I like to cuddle up with my family and give them kisses. You can come meet me any day from noon to 5 p.m. at the APL!


Hi, my name is Matt. I am an 8-year-old cat. I came to the shelter when my owner couldn't care for me anymore. I'm a pretty laid-back guy who would like to have a quiet home to kick back and relax in. I'm an affectionate guy who likes to get chin scratches and pets. I'm a bit older, though, so I like to get attention when I want it, and then other times I want to be left alone. Also, I'm front declawed. You can come meet me any day from noon to 5 p.m. at the APL!
