The Cleveland Animal Protective League will host its annual gala, Fur Ball 2022—Disco InFURno, on Saturday, November 5, at the InterContinental Hotel Cleveland—this year, with an in-person and virtual format available for guests. We rely on the generosity of the community who believes in our mission. With your support, the funds raised from Fur Ball will give thousands of animals in Northeast Ohio a second chance for love, happiness, and a new family.
Every year thousands of animals arrive at the Cleveland APL, one of Northeast Ohio’s largest humane societies. Some are surrendered by owners who can no longer care for them, some are strays, while others are rescued by the APL’s Humane Investigations team from abuse and neglect.
We continue to be faced with a steady stream of people who can’t keep their pets, animals left behind to fend for themselves after their families moved, and animals who have fallen victim to their owner’s anger or neglect. The Cleveland APL is often the only safe haven for animals with no other options and thankfully we are here every single day to help make a difference in their lives.
As a private, nonprofit organization, the APL receives no government funding to support our operations. We rely solely on donations to operate the shelter, investigate animal cruelty, provide medical care for our animals, and educate the community. While we hope every animal who comes to us finds a new home as quickly as possible, there is no limit on the amount of time an animal may stay at the APL. We care for every friendly, healthy animal until we find them a new family…and thanks to our Second Chance Program, we’ve extended that commitment to an increasing number of animals with treatable illnesses and injuries.
