A Labor of Love: An Adoption Event


Labor of Love

The Cleveland Animal Protective League is teaming up with area rescue groups to participate in A Labor of Love Adoption Event, taking place this Saturday, August 30th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the PetSmart® store in Parma at 6870 Ridge Rd. The collaborative effort will feature available dogs and cats from the Cleveland APL, Tails from the City, PAWS, and Love-a-Stray with support from PetSmart and PetSmart Charities®.

In celebration of A Labor of Love Adoption Event, this Saturday, August 30th only, all adult cats over 1 year will be available for only $25 and kittens under 1 year will be available for only $50 at both the Everyday Adoption Center located in the Parma PetSmart, as well as at our adoption center located in Tremont.

(Regular adoption fee for adult cats over the age of five months is $45 and kittens is $95.)

“We’re thrilled to participate with these other wonderful groups in an effort to reach a goal of finding homes for 50 animals this Saturday,” said Sharon Harvey, President and CEO of the Cleveland APL. “We know that with the support of our community, we can exceed our goal, but just to be sure, we’re adding incentive by lowering our fees. The value is amazing, but truly, the love and companionship given by a new pet is priceless.”

All animals adopted from the APL have been spayed-neutered, tested for heartworm or FeLV/FIV, have received age appropriate vaccinations and treatment of worms and fleas, and come with helpful species-specific animal care information, a free initial veterinary exam, and are eligible for 30-45 days of free ShelterCare pet health insurance. Cats and kittens come with a travel box, and dogs and puppies go home with a free collar and a leash.  All adoptable animals can be seen at www.ClevelandAPL.org or by downloading the Cleveland APL’s free adoption app on iOS or Android devices.

Please call the APL at 216-771-4616 with any questions about adopting or becoming a foster care volunteer.
