Over 2000 deserving dogs and cats were placed in their forever homes in 2016. APL also has an active group of foster families who provide interim homes until space is available at our shelter. An application must be approved to finalize an adoption; download and complete the Adoption Survey to start the adoption process.

APL Animals

All of our animals are spayed or neutered before being available for adoption. They are given vaccinations and a general wormer. Dogs are heartworm tested; given vaccinations for rabies (if old enough), bordetella, canine distemper/parvo; kept on heartworm and flea preventative. Cats are tested for FIV and feline leukemia; given feline distemper and vaccinations; kept on flea preventative. All animals are microchipped. The adoption fee for our animals is variable for dogs, $50 for cats and kittens ($65 if adopted in pairs).

Adopt an adult pet. 

There are a lot of excellent reasons to adopt an adult dog or cat. These pets often find themselves homeless because an owner has passed away, gotten a divorce, or lost a job and cannot care for a pet any longer. Adult dogs are often housebroken, won't wake you in the middle of the night to play, and have outgrown the desire to shred your couch cushions or munch on your shoes. Adult cats are usually trained to use a litter box, are not destructive, and would rather curl up in your lap than climb your drapes. APL always has a great group of adults, both at our shelter and in foster homes. Please consider adopting one of them.
