Hi, my name is Brodie! I am a 7-month-old Pointer mix. When I came to the APL, I had an injured leg that needed to be amputated. I'm doing just fine without it and am even doing a great job at playing ball. I love my people and always want to be close to them. I am good with other dogs, cats and kids. I am housebroken, too! I am an active guy who likes to go for walks and play, but I like hanging out and cuddling with my people the best! I am currently living in a foster home, so call the APL at 217-544-7387 for information on how to meet or adopt me!
Hello, my name is Roary. I am a beautiful 4-year-old long hair cat. When I first came to the APL, I had an injured tail that needed to be amputated. It healed up just fine and I don't even notice anymore. I am friendly and like getting attention, but I don't need to be with you all of the time. I'll spend some time by myself and then come visit you when I'd like some pets and cuddles. I'm a sweet girl who will be a great loyal buddy! Come visit me any day from noon to 5 p.m. at the APL!
