Falling In Love

Falling in love is a wonderful thing. There is nothing more rewarding than when the Cleveland Animal Protective League (APL) finds loving, lifelong homes for the precious animals in our care. Your support makes everything—including falling in love—possible at the Cleveland Animal Protective League.
