New adoption promo

Last week, the Cleveland APL Humane Investigators were called to assist authorities with a hoarding situation at a residence in a Cuyahoga County suburb.  So far, we’ve received 33 cats from the property and anticipate there will be more. This is on top of the other 131 cats we brought in last week alone who just needed a second chance.  With this sudden influx of dozens of cats at a time of year when we already struggle to keep up with the number of cats who need us, we need the community’s help.

We need to find good homes RIGHT NOW for the wonderful cats who were already available for adoption at the Cleveland APL so we can open up the badly needed cages and provide these new cats with the care and space they need to recover.

For that reason, this Friday and Saturday only, cats and kittens will be available for adoption for only $5 and a second cat or kitten for only $10.40 to honor our wonderful friends at Q104 who are our Celebrities of the Month for July and have been encouraging their listeners to adopt a cat or kitten from the APL.  Please help us spread the word so we can help these cats! (Regular adoption fees are $45 for adult cats and $95 for kittens.)

All animals are spayed-neutered, tested for heartworm or FELV/FIV, have received age appropriate vaccinations and treatments of worms and fleas, and come with a collar and personalized ID tag, helpful species-specific animal care information, a starter bag of Hill’s Science Diet pet food, and a free initial veterinary exam. Cats/Kittens come with a travel box, and dogs/puppy adoptions include a leash.  All adoptable animals can be seen at

Please call the APL at 216-771-4616 with any questions about adopting.
