Christine and Monet

Christine and her cat Monet

My volunteer involvement with the Cleveland APL has been varied. Over the last eight years, I’ve headed up a “Fur Ball” committee, become a Cat Care Volunteer with a weekly shift in Cat Adopt, and participated in numerous off-site events, One benefit to the variety of work I’ve done is learning a lot about the APL–its vision and the programs and services offered. The more I learned and the more involved I became, it was clear to me that this organization is extraordinary it its efforts to help the homeless animals of Northeast Ohio and it deserved any and all support I could give–both through my volunteer hours and financial contributions.
When I looked at the ways in which I could maximize my support of the APL, the best option for me was to make a long-term commitment with a planned gift. This offers me the ability to provide financial support to the APL in the future at a level beyond what I could do “in the here and now.” I am thrilled to know that through my planned gift, the APL will continue to do what it does best: Adopt, Protect and Love those animals in need in Northeast Ohio.  – Christine
