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 Jake! I am a friendly, affectionate 1-year-old Catahoula mix. I've got lots of energy, so I would be a great match if you're looking for a buddy to go on walks or runs with, or just play ball with! Come meet me at the APL!





Hi, my name is Elijah! I am a sweet, handsome 4-year-old tabby cat. I am a calm, friendly gentleman. I appreciate a slower pace in life and enjoy relaxing with my people. Come meet me at the APL!
