Cleveland Rocks Adoptions
Cleveland Animal Protective League accepts adoption challenge from Sacramento SPCA
Cleveland, OH (January 14, 2015) – An adoption duel, you say? To coincide with the two times the Cleveland Cavaliers will play the Sacramento Kings in January, the Cleveland Animal Protective League has been challenged by the wonderful team at the Sacramento SPCA to an adoption competition. Since the Cleveland APL is not known to back away from a challenge, and especially not from one that will benefit so many animals, the challenge was eagerly accepted. Our goal is simple: to find more loving homes for our adoptable animals during the month of January than the Sacramento SPCA does. And really, regardless of which shelter wins, the animals who find their new homes are the real winners.
To help find as many animals homes as possible, we are reducing our cat adoption fees beginning Friday, January 16th through Sunday, January 18th. Our adult cat adoption fee will be $20 and our kitten adoption fee will be $35. We will honor these reduced fees at both our adoption center in Tremont as well as at our Everyday Adoption Center located in the Parma PetSmart® store. (Regular adoption fees are $45 for adults cats and $95 for kittens.)
But the fun doesn’t stop there. To further show our Cleveland pride, any adopter who is willing to sing the chorus of “Cleveland Rocks,” and allow us to capture a quick video of the performance to share with our friends in Sacramento, will receive an additional $10 off ANY adoption, including dogs, puppies, rabbits, and pocket pets.
“Across the country, animal welfare organizations are pulling out all the stops to find new families for the homeless animals in our care,” says Sharon Harvey, President and CEO of the Cleveland APL. “This fun challenge between the Cleveland APL and Sacramento SPCA will help to raise awareness and save more lives in both communities. That said, at the APL we’re CLEVELAND PROUD, and we need your help to BEAT SACRAMENTO in adoptions this month. Truly, no one who challenges the Cleveland APL to an adoption duel should expect to come out of the battle unscathed – nobody puts our animals in the corner!”
