The members of the on-air team at Q104 are the newest local celebrities to sponsor Cleveland APL adoptable pets.  During the month of July, the Q104 team will be helping the APL to promote pet adoption!  And, beginning July 1st, the Cleveland APL will have special adoption pricing to honor this fantastic partnership.  All month long, in an effort to help the wonderful cats, kittens, and rabbits waiting for new homes, the APL is Rockin’ Adoptions and dropping our adoption fee to $10.40 for all cats, kittens, and rabbits! (Regular adoption fee for adult cats over the age of five months is $45, for kittens is $95, and for rabbits is $25). Additionally, adopters can take a second feline friend home for just $20 (limited to two per household).

The Q104 jocks are all huge advocates for adoption and longtime supporters of the APL. “I once heard if you adopt an animal it’s as if they ‘know’ they are getting a second chance,” said Kelly McMann (3 pm to 7 pm on Q104).  We all deserve a second chance at life.  Adopting an animal is not only life changing for them, but healing for you as well.  I believe in the APL and the next time you are looking for a ‘new family member’ chose adoption, you will get thanked in more ways than you know.”

“These poor babies have been abandoned, neglected, and some even abused, but they have so much love to give… if you adopt and welcome them into your family, said Katherine Boyd (Fee’s Kompany).  Her partner on the morning show, Glenn Anderson, agreed, “One of the things I learned about the APL is that every animal has a story.  Shelter animals love more because they’ve been through more.  It is crucial that we find all of the wonderful animals a forever home and get the word out.”

Average Joe (10 am to 3 pm), said, “I’ve been an animal lover, and dog owner all my life.  To see some without homes is heartbreaking.  We should be proud that wonderful people at the Cleveland APL find them a permanent home.  I wish I could adopt them all!”  Aly Tanner (7 pm to midnight), the newest member of the team, agrees with Joe, “the warmth and care from the staff toward the animals in the shelter resonated in me, too.  It is incredible to hear the stories about the animals, and it only made me want to wrap each of them up in my arms and take them home!”

Q104’s Support of the APL

For 8 years now, Q104 has hosted the Pledge for Pets Radiothon in May to benefit the Cleveland Animal Protective League.  This two-day, 18-hour fund-raiser, hosted by Q104’s morning show team of Allan Fee, Katherine Boyd, and Glenn Anderson, tells the stories of just some of the animals who come through the doors of the APL each year and of the wonderful people who rescue, rehabilitate and adopt them.  Over the past eight years, this event has raised more than $1 million for the Cleveland APL.
