Cats are PRICELESS....APL says

From our friends at the Cleveland APL:

There are hundreds of cats and kittens living at the Cleveland APL and hundreds more in our foster homes just waiting to come in – and they all need a family to love.
Needless to say, at the APL, “Finding a forever home = PRICELESS!”
It’s that time of year when the number of cats that need the Cleveland APL’s help is exceeding the
number of people coming in to adopt – and the shelter is over capacity. So, to encourage people to adopt a cat NOW, we’re telling adopters to name their own adoption fee for all adult cats – we’ll even waive the fee completely if it means a good home and a happy ending! We’re also asking our community to help by
spreading the word.
Through July 3, one adult cat (5 months and older) can be adopted for the adoption fee of your
choosing. The adoption fee for a second adult cat will be $20.00. The adoption fee for kittens has
been reduced to $50. Each adoption will also include a free 3.5 lb. bag of Hill’s Science Diet cat
food, a collar, and an engraved, personalized identification tag (courtesy of a grant provided by the
ASPCA). (Regular adoption fees for cats are $45 for adults and $95 for kittens.
All animals are spayed-neutered, tested for heartworm or FELV/FIV, have received age appropriate vaccinations and treatments of worms and fleas, and come with a collar and APL ID tag, helpful species-specific animal care information, and free initial veterinary exam. Cats/Kittens come with a travel box, and dogs/puppy adoptions include a leash.
All adoptable animals can be seen at
Call the APL at 216-771-4616 with any questions about adopting, or stop by at 1729 Willey Ave., Cleveland.
