“Treat yourself to a dog (or cat)” to Celebrate National Adopt-A-Dog Month!

October 1, 2008 – Although Halloween ends the month, the Cleveland Animal Protective League is offering “treats” to dog and cat adopters during the entire month of October in celebration of national Adopt-A-Dog Month.

“The annual Adopt-A-Dog month is an effort by animal shelters across the country to call attention to the wonderful dogs who have been ‘tricked’ out of a good home and are looking for a new lifetime companion.

The Cleveland Animal Protective League is going to treat anyone who adopts one of our awesome dogs in October with some great gifts,” said APL Executive Director Sharon Harvey. “And, as we have over 600 totally awesome cats in our care right now, the APL is putting a local spin on this celebration by offering an adoption special for kittens and cats during the first week of October.”

During the entire month of October all dog adopters will go home with:

  •     A FREE 5 lb bag of Hill’s Science Diet dog food
  •     A FREE Build-a-Bear Maltipoo stuffed companion
  •     A FREE training DVD
  •     Microchips will be available to ALL adopters for a low, low price of $15–this includes registration!

During the first week of October, cats 4 months and up will be available for an adoption fee of only $10 and kittens under 4 months will be $25! Cats also come with a FREE informational DVD.

All animals are spayed-neutered, tested for heartworm or FeLV/FIV, have received age appropriate vaccinations and treatment of worms and fleas, and come with a collar and APL ID Tag, helpful species-specific animal care information, a free initial veterinary exam, and 30 days free ShelterCare pet insurance. Cats/Kittens come with a travel box, and dogs/puppy adoptions include a leash. All adoptable animals can be seen at
