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.

Hello, my name is Eloise! I am a sweet 7-year-old Lab mix. I am friendly and well-behaved. I'm housebroken, too! I am heartworm positive, but if you adopt me, the APL will provide my treatment. Come meet me at the APL!



Hello, my name is Fantine! I am a beautiful 1-year-old cat. I came to the APL with my kittens, and I have been a great mom to them. I am a calm, laid-back cat. I can be a bit timid when I first meet you, but once I'm comfortable with you, we'll be great friends. Come meet me at the Springfield Petsmart in the adoptable cats area!
