Virtual Christmas in July Fundraiser

APL's Christmas in July has been made VIRTUAL!  This is a fun way to take your mind off the summer heat, quarantine, and help out sick and injured, homeless animals at the same time.

Cool Down with Dogs

Make a BIG SPLASH for homeless animals by participating in our Cool Down for Dogs Event and donate to watch your favorite celebrity "dunkled!" Our celebrities are raising money for homeless animals and you can help! The celebrity that raises the most money will be crowned our 2020 Coolest Dog! Click on the celebrity's name you would like to see dunked and it will take you straight to their Facebook fundraising page where you can donate.  All money raised goes directly to care for the animals at APL!

Deb West - Internet Personality

Joe Crain - Director of Public Programs and Community Engagment at ALPLM

Mo Lightning - 97.7 QLZ

Micah Walk - The Shenanigans

Julie Jacobs - WDBR

Pet Costume Contest

See the entries in our Christmas themed Pet Costume Contest with an award given for the pet who best represents the Christmas spirit! It is $10 to enter and all the proceeds benefit the dogs and cats in the shelter. All entries can be viewed on our website too so we can all enjoy the adorable pets in costume! You can register online here.

Cats in Hats Adoption Special

What would Christmas be without giving our special animals a home for the holidays! With our Cats in Hats Special, which will run all month long, you can adopt an adult cat for FREE or $25! Just look for the Elf or Santa hat on their cage when you make an appointment and visit all our great cats that need a home.

Kringle's Kittens

You can also meet over 50 kittens at our Kringle's Kittens event July 24th and 25th and adopt one for 50% off!  That's only $25! Our Mobile Adoption Unit will be at the shelter from noon to 5pm each day. You must have a pre-approved application to view kittens at the event - you can fill out an application here.  All animals adopted from APL have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped by the time of their adoption. That is a minimum $395 value!
