Your commitment to the Cleveland Animal Protective League (APL) is what allows us to continue our mission to foster compassion and end animal suffering. It’s because of you the APL is able to give homeless animals everything they need to heal, thrive and prepare to begin their new lives—and for that we are so grateful. Your support makes a difference and touches the lives of so many very special animals. Animals like Fifi La Fume and Shelby.
Fifi La Fume, adorned with distinct markings, was brought to the Cleveland APL by a woman who found her abandoned in an apartment. She looked like she may have been burned and had a large open wound in the middle of her back. Our veterinary team provided all of the medical care she needed, but it would take time for her injuries to heal. Fifi was sent out to one of our foster families where she had the opportunity to heal and receive the tender loving care she so deserved. After returning to the APL, it didn’t take long for the striking kitty to find her new family and get adopted!
Shelby, a 5-year-old Retriever mix, was brought to the Cleveland APL when her owners could no longer afford her allergy medications. She was well-behaved, sweet and got along well with other dogs and young children, but she had scabs due to her allergies and was a little overweight. Shelby spent a little over a month in a foster home to give her time to heal. But when her time in foster was nearly over, Shelby’s foster family knew they couldn’t say “good-bye” and they ended up adopting her.
It’s all because of you Fifi La Fume and Shelby are enjoying their new, happy lives. Together as partners, we can continue to make a real difference in the lives for animals in need. Can we count on you to make a gift today?
Your compassion for animals means so much to us, but it means the most to the animals who will benefit directly from your generosity. Please make your donation today. As always, we are deeply grateful for your support!
