 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 Darcy! I am a fun and energetic 2-year-old Cattle Dog/Border Collie mix. I am very friendly and like everyone I meet. I have lots of energy and love to run. I would make a great running partner! I am very eager to please, even if I don't know what you want. I'll just go through the things I know how to do and hope one of those is it. I am at the APL and you can come meet me any day from noon to 5 p.m.!


Hello, my name is Scottie. I am a handsome 7-year-old tuxedo cat. I was adopted from the APL when I was a kitten, but recently returned (through no fault of my own.) I am a laid-back guy who likes kicking back and relaxing with my family. I like getting attention, but I won't be up in your face asking for it. I am used to living with another cat so it would be great if I had a feline buddy to live with! I am at the APL, so you can come meet me any day from noon to 5 p.m.!
