Bringing a new pet into your life is a big decision, and when you adopt, you're giving a loving pet the second chance it deserves — and freeing up shelter resources to help other pets in need. The Animal Protection League is here for animals that have nowhere else to go. They arrive here for a variety of reasons, but they're all looking for the same things: love, security and a family of their own. Adoption is an act of love — and that's where you come in.





When you're ready to adopt your new best friend, the first step is to complete an adoption application. They're available online, in person, and at our satellite adoption centers - PetSmart, Pet Valu, Speck's, and Seedy Sally's.


Our Team will verify the information including, but not limited to: home ownership, landlord approval, veterinary records, etc. 

Once your application is processed, we'll work with you to schedule a meet & greet appointment.  This is the time when you'll come to our shelter to officially make your connection. 


The wife and I have a puppy and she played very well with our daughter's cats, so we thought it would complete our family to get a cat. Sadly, we're not cat people - so, what do we do? We adopt TWO! The staff at APL are great. Good selection. They don't turn animals away. This place is great and the people are too.

This is a special place with many wonderful people, volunteers, and loving pets looking for a Forever Home.  If you're looking for a new baby to love, this is the place to go.  We drove over 2 hours to get there.  Well worth it.

Our animals change daily, so please check our lists of adoptable dogs and adoptable cats frequently. Once you find an animal you’d like to adopt, the next step is to complete an application. Make sure to be thorough and help us understand why you’re interested in that particular animal — and why your home is a great fit.

If we have multiple applicants for the same animal, our team will review the applications and select the home we feel is the best fit. If there’s more than one great fit for the animal, we will go with the applicant who submitted an application and confirms a meet and greet appointment first.
