Holiday Pet Delivery2

CLEVELAND, OH (December 14, 2015) – The magic of the holiday season is upon us. Cheerful music is playing, cookies are baking in the oven, family and friends are coming together to celebrate this joyous time, and folks are warming up by the fire. Here at the Cleveland APL, we recognize the importance of family during the holidays, which is why we would love to help you add to yours by adopting a pet to be “delivered” to your home by our APL elves on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.
For a $50 fee, your new furry friend will be “delivered” from the Cleveland APL to your home on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. For a $75 fee, your pet will be “delivered” to your home along with a stocking of goodies!

Delivery options are as follows: Christmas Eve from 4 to 8 p.m., or Christmas morning from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.  Adopters can sign up for this service at both the Cleveland APL’s adoption center in Tremont (located at 1729 Willey Avenue) or their PetSmart Charities® Everyday Adoption Center (located in the Parma PetSmart® store at 6870 Ridge Road) beginning Monday, December 21, through Christmas Eve, depending on the availability of the APL’s delivery elves.  *The service is available only in Cuyahoga County and there are a limited number of deliveries available.

“What better way to bring the magic of the holiday season to your home than by adopting a homeless animal into your family and having our wonderful Cleveland APL elves him or her delivered to you on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?” asks Sharon Harvey, President and CEO of the Cleveland Animal Protective League. “The holidays are about love, joy and giving. Please consider giving a deserving animal the gift of a loving, lifetime home.”
